Fantastic result-2nd place for SCD in regional UK Rock Challenge!

On Monday 5th February, students travelled to Stevenage to compete with nine other schools in the regional UK Rock Challenge. The students gave an outstanding performance, which resulted in the team achieving a fantastic second place in the challenge.

To compete in the challenge, the team, (including performers, stage crew and support crew), decided on a theme and then created the choreography for their dance-drama performance.  The team chose Twisted Fairy Tales as their theme, and selected and recorded the medley of music for their soundtrack,  and also created their sets and costumes.

The challenge is run by BYBF (Be Your Best Foundation). The charity is responsible for fundraising and producing the challenge and aims to encourage young people to lead healthy lifestyles without the need for alcohol, tobacco and other harmful substances.

Since the event started in 1996, the charity has run more than 4,300 Rock Challenge and Rock performances involving around 320,000 young people. The events have been enjoyed by over half a million audience members during this period.

As well as achieving overall 2nd place, the school was successful in winning a huge number of awards at the evening:
