This year St Mary's School took part in Junior Rock Challenge for the first time. 70 pupils in Years 4-6 were involved either performing or as back stage crew. We had a tremendous day and thoroughly enjoyed performing for such a large audience.
Our dance was called 'Be true to your school' and followed the journey of a new school pupil who had to make the decision whether to follow the school values of hope, friendship, perseverance and respect or be influenced by a group of children who like to make their own rules. We were overwhelmed to receive awards for excellence in Drama, Entertainment, Concept and Stage Crew.
Rock Challenge has had a very positive impact on our school and has created a real buzz around the performing arts. It has given our pupils a chance to work as a mixed age group team to create a piece that was technically challenging and embraced our school values.
We are very proud of our achievements and are already looking forward to next year.
