Sunday 26th March 2017, Wollaston School took part in Rock Challenge 2017 presented by Be Your best Foundation at Milton Keynes Theatre. We competed against 5 other schools for a place in the Southern Open Final on Friday 28th April 2017 in Portsmouth.
The theme, ‘My heart will smile’, amongst devastation and loss, there is hope. The on-going plight of child refugees is highlighted through dance and drama.
The performance was judged by specialists in the field of performing arts, criteria included some of the following elements, choreography, performance skill and stage use. Concept, drama and soundtrack. Set design and function; costuming character and visual enhancement.
Multiple schools could be awarded ‘Awards of Excellence’ if they scored highly in a particular area, Wollaston won 13 out of 15 awards, we also won the ‘Community Award’ and ‘Best Performance’ voted by all of the schools involved on the day….our students were AMAZING and deserved to be announced overall winners.
Congratulations to all of the students involved, parents for supporting and our Outstanding teachers for initiating the idea and supporting our very talented students.
