Rock Challenge 2019, Southampton

We are SO proud of all our junior children who were awarded 3rd place after their stunning performance of ‘MV Wellpark to the Rescue!’ - retelling an amazing story of one of the most daring rescue operations of a small wooden boat crammed with hundreds of refugees, including many women and children, fleeing Vietnam’s oppressive communist regime. 


They also scooped an additional 10 awards for excellence in: 

Scenery function

Costume and character

Use of stage


Performance skill


Stage Crew

Drama skill




The children competed at the Guildhall, Southampton,against other Hampshire schools in the dance competition, an event which encourages young people to make positive life choices and be their best! 


The competition improves physical health and also enables young people involved to develop a range of life skills and character traits important for personal development. 


In addition, the competition improves resilience, confidence-building and understanding of teamwork and builds resilience when faced with challenges later in life.


A huge thank you to Hannah, our choreographer from Gremlin Dance, ALL the staff, Governor volunteers, parents, community volunteers, community sponsors (Farnborough Rotary & RM Carpets) and national sponsor (Gewiss UK Ltd) for making this event so successful- we couldn’t have done it without you!  


But our final thanks goes to our fabulous children for their hard work and dedication over the last few months. Well done!
