Tomorrow will come, she may forget she stood before you; she lives and survives in the moment. Like a butterfly, her life may be short but its beauty lives on.

EGA SCHOOL
"#thinkbeforeyoutweet"

    The menacing messages kept shooting, like endless bullets from a gun. A losing battle with an unknown predator, is this their idea of fun?

    The 2010 disaster of the collapsed mine entrapped 33 Chilean miners and prompted a global media response.

After 69 days of crisis, will Chile ever be the same?

PARLIAMENT HILL SCHOOL

HABERDASHERS' ASKE'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
"Hear, See, Speak No Evil"

    Everyone has the right to freedom of expression, reflected by having full control over your body and senses. When these elements are taken away communication becomes vital and individuals must discover new methods to express themselves. When faced with difficulties such as lack of sight, hearing and speech we must overcome these barriers to reach our full potential.

Adaptation developed from Alice in Wonderland.

    Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.

    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

"Rising"

    ‘Rising’ is inspired by contemporary choreographers Arnott and McGregor. The ovement vocabulary has been choreographed challenging the dancer’s physicality, dynamism and movement-style, therefore high-in-energy and abstract in sense. ‘Rising’ has multiple connotations, leaving the dance idea to the audiences own creative perceptions. ‘Rising’ inspires the imagination to consider the dancers ‘Rising’ from nothing into a state of vitality and resurrection.

    With lips that shamed the blood red rose,
    In eternal sleep, she finds repose.
    A prince comes forth, to do his duty
    And with a kiss wake the sleeping beauty.
    But he must face all evils might,
    And her prince Phillip may lose this fight.

      In prison they receive guidance and support.
      When they are ready they will be free, forgiveness given, accepted back in to our community.

    ST MARY'S COLLEGE
    "Infectious"

      We take a look into a world that is dominated by followers. Individuality becomes a thing of the past. A world where the natural progressions of society appears to be the disease that rapidly takes over everyone. It takes nothing to join a crowd, but takes everything to stand alone. Fighting to be himself, an individual, but will he succumb?

    THE BOULEVARD ACADEMY
    "Escapism: Life in Literature"

      Two school pupils find life tough. They struggle at home, in school and in life! The only way to cope is books. It’s their escapism. The more they read, the more they realise they are not alone. Their struggles are reflected within the stories they read. Will this help them to cope, or give them false hope?

    WILBERFORCE 6TH FORM COLLEGE
    "The Holocaust"

      The Holocaust included the mass murder of 6 million Jews leading up to, and during, WWII. Among the measures the Nazis took against the Jews, the worst consequence was the separation of the children from their families. In desperation the parents tried to spare their children by asking people to hide them and this is where our story begins.

    WINIFRED HOLTBY ACADEMY
    "Unite: 'A UNITED Kingdom'"

      We believe British values and diversity can coexist. Democracy, law, liberty, respect and tolerance are what make Britain great! More than ever we need to live by these great British values and realise that nationality, race and religion are different things. We are all British, irrespective of our race and religion; it’s our time to unite as a UNITED Kingdom!

CHILTERN PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Acceptance: When different worlds meet"

    When fairytale characters find a magical portal that leads from their make believe world into our reality, they are shocked to find not everyone is accepting of others as they are. Using this interpretation of non acceptance, we want to portray the positives of non discrimination, appreciating others’ individuality and what we can learn and enjoy from others through acceptance.

CRAVEN PRIMARY ACADEMY
"Crave 'n' Dreams"

    We were lost and felt hopeless in the absence of teamwork. We learnt that if we work against each other instead of together then dreams can be lost along the way. The choices we make can shape our future. By working together and being motivated we can aspire to achieve our vision for our future. Together we are stronger!

EASTFIELD PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Remembrance"

    World War II- A war that shook our world once again. Games, parties...all became a thing of the past. Instead, rationing, air raid shelters...death! This was a hard world to keep hope and love alive. When two childhood sweethearts are torn apart, we wonder will they ever get their happy ever after?

FRANCIS ASKEW PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Do you believe?"

    Do you believe in a world where magic exists? People think that children nowadays are stifled by technology, unable to interact socially and lacking in creativity and imagination. Is this true? Is there no hope? Join a little boy on his quest to show that the world is still a magical place to those who truly believe. Do you?

NEWINGTON ACADEMY
"Slavery"

    People treated as property, bought and sold. Travelling around the world and being punished even though they are working long hours for little or no pay. Our piece will highlight the importance of the abolition of slavery whilst exploring some of the countries slaves came from and went to. We will celebrate the life of William Wilberforce, a local hero.

OLDFLEET PRIMARY SCHOOL
"True Colours"

    Many young people change their behaviour and appearance to fit in. Join Elmer on a journey of self-discovery as he learns that being different can be good. After trying to hide his differences and blend in, Elmer’s friends help him to reveal his true colours. Celebrate with Elmer as he realises that he is amazing just as he is!

SPRING COTTAGE PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Noah's Rocket"

    A traditional tale with a modern twist. After receiving a call from “The Boss” our humble hero Noah sets about saving life on Earth before it’s too late. Has he bitten off more than he can chew? After all it can’t be easy separating the good from the greedy and building something large enough to save the masses!

STOCKWELL ACADEMY
"Believe"

    At Stockwell, we are proud of who we are and what we achieve. We are all individuals in our own special way. Sometimes we lose our way and find things difficult. When this happens, we remember to believe in ourselves and always try our best with the help of our friends.

CAMPSMOUNT: A CO-OPERATIVE ACADEMY
"Effects that manifest"

    ‘For those of you who seek to find a way to leave the world behind.’ The game read through the circular window. A brother and sister endure a battle of numerous threats. But what they didn’t realise was the games warning, ‘do not begin unless you intend to finish.’ Can they finish the game before it finishes them?

DEARHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Robot Rebels"

    An unstoppable robot has generated a rampaging robot army. Her mission is to invade our ‘wonderful world` and turn it into a place of grim nightmares where everyone is identical, living in their ‘little boxes.` One ‘robot rebel` is determined to overcome her deadly power by reprogramming the clones and reassuring them that it is better to be unique.

EWANRIGG JUNIOR SCHOOL
"Romeo and Juliet Love Never Dies"

    As you probably know, Romeo and Juliet couldn’t live without each other, but they were never allowed to be together when they were alive. In the play, Shakespeare wrote that parting is such sweet sorrow so perhaps he knew that the story didn’t end there, but he wasn’t telling. Maybe, just maybe, this is what happened next…

FLIMBY PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Happy Town"

    There was a town not far from here called Drabsville, USA, where all the houses looked the same and everything was grey. The people who lived there were in the depths of despair. Now Chutney, she was a traveller, who’d travelled far and wide. One day, she arrived with a colourful box, which had a special seed inside...

JOHN SPENCE COMMUNITY HIGH
"It's all plastic, not fantastic!"

    Image dictates who we are and how we are placed in society. Image defines us as individuals and we are a world increasingly obsessed with how we look. Are we heading towards a cloned society where it’s not ‘right’ to be an individual? How does it feel to challenge a ‘plastic perfection’?

MAYFIELD SCHOOL
"Let the rain fall not the trees"

    All is well in the rainforest as the colours dazzle from the tropical animals. Until their world is shaken by the breaking news of a development being built in the forest. As we see developers and lumberjacks attempt to cut down the trees and ruin the animal’s habitat can they stop it? ‘Let the rain fall not the trees.’

RIVINGTON AND BLACKROD HIGH SCHOOL
"The Witch & the Candyman"

    Two young children are abandoned in the forest by their father and step-mother. We follow them on their journey as they meet moving trees, birds, sweets, the Candyman and the evil witch. Who will win in the battle between good and evil and will they find their way home?

ST BENEDICT'S CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL
"Vesuvius"

    A city covered with dust and bodies entwined for eternity! What’s their story? A boy, a girl, thrown together by fate; a controlling father, determined to keep them apart! As they fight for love & freedom their world is plunged into chaos, filled with fire & danger. Will they escape the wrath of Vesuvius? Or is their destiny already decided?

ST PATRICK'S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Growing from Greed"

    Lily lived in a strange world, where people had forgotten what was important. There were no trees, no plants, and no animals…What happened? Fast forward to a time where the land was rich in colour and life was meaningful. Poisoned by greed and selfishness the inventor has stripped the land bare. Can he redeem himself? Can new life re-grow?

ALL SAINTS' C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL
"The Ugly Duckling"

    There once was an ugly duckling, who wasn't the same as her brothers and sisters. She moved and looked different, feeling left out. Eventually her family left her and so on she went, all alone, searching for who she really was. On her journey she discovers that it's all right to be different because everyone fits in somewhere.

HILTON PRIMARY ACADEMY
"Generation Selfie"

    Katie is a preteen preoccupied by her social media life-style. Obsessed with how many likes she can gain on her Facebook account, and living her life through her Twitter account. When cyber bullies begin to take a leading role in her real-life Katie is engulfed by a world she was not prepared for and needs to find a way out.

ORGILL PRIMARY SCHOOL
"There's no place like home!"

    Dorothy contemplates how different her life would be away from the farm. A tornado hits, sending Dorothy and Toto into a fantasy world where she follows the path to friendship and the realisation that there's no place like home. But will she ever find her back to Kansas?

MONTREAL C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Save The Rainforest!"

    Thousands of animals are dying needlessly due to our vanity and greed. Every day, animals are suffering because of the selfishness of humans. Ancient African tribes are being pulled apart, living in fear and despair of their homes being destroyed. We need to put an end to this before it is too late. Save the rainforest and love your world.

MORESBY PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Alice in Underland"

    Alice is venturing back into Underland, where she learns she has to stay true to herself in order to save the White Queen. Can she find the missing pieces of the Red Queen’s heart to save the day? Join her as she discovers that everyone is capable of changing for the better.

THE WHITEHAVEN ACADEMY
"Be Grateful, Be True, Be You"

    Bored
    Nothing to do
    No one to talk to
    No fun to be had
    Just the same old boring day.
    Sound familiar?
    Open your eyes!
    Most likely you are in the presence of love
    Love that others only dream about.
    Do you appreciate all your blessings?
    Or are they invisible to you too?
    Fine. Go and make your own world…

VICTORIA INFANT SCHOOL
"YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND IN ME"

    We are going to tell you a story of friends we thought we could trust betraying us. Goldilocks and Jack challenge that friendship by putting a spell on everyone, stealing and pushing humpty dumpty off the wall. With the help of the fairy godmother who releases the spell, they find their friend. Humpty knows who his true friends are.

VICTORIA JUNIOR SCHOOL
"It's Our World"

    Take care of our world, we won’t get a second chance. Every day we must remember to look after our environment, making our voices heard against the greater dangers. Our piece shows how we destroy our forests, animals and seas through pollution. Protect our planet and the creatures who are so special as they can never be replaced if lost.

WEST LAKES ACADEMY
"Evil has a beginning"

    Maleficent is betrayed by her true love, Stefan, who is then crowned king. Driven by revenge, Maleficent places a curse upon his new-born daughter Aurora. Stefan banishes the baby to the safety of the forest, where Maleficent and Aurora accidentally meet years later. True love blossoms again, but is it too late? Can Maleficent revoke the curse and save Aurora.
Due to their previous event success, The Whitehaven Academy and West Lakes Academy are two of the UK’s 9 Northern Premier Division schools, which means that they are not eligible to place at tonight’s event, nor are they eligible for many of the special awards presented; instead, they have automatically qualified through to the Rock Challenge® Northern Premier Final taking place at Grimsby Auditorium in June.

National J Rock™ Award for Stage Crew
Nominees:

Highlands Primary School
Nursling Primary School
Solent Junior School
Waverley Abbey Junior School
Wicor Primary School

and the winner is Waverley Abbey Junior School, Farnham, Surrey
Waverley Abbey have been selected as our J Rock™ Stage Crew of the year due to being a well-organised group. With a lot of pieces of set it is easy for a team to get confused, but the on, off and movement was executed smoothly with good efficiency. A special mention must go the student leader in particular who led the crew exceedingly well.

National Rock Challenge® Award for Stage Crew
Nominees:

Andrew Marvell College
Buttershaw Business and Enterprise College
Hazelwood Integrated College
Kemnay Academy
Oak Academy – LeAF Campus
Mackie Academy
Perins School
Peterhead Academy
St Peter's School
Winchmore School

and the joint winners are Oak Academy – LeAF Campus, Bournemouth, Dorset and Peterhead Academy, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Oak Academy have been chosen due to the integration of the scenery into the performance and the skilful and efficient way it was executed. The stage crew acted as an extension of the performers and were an outstandingly well-spirited team with a great sense of enthusiasm whilst maintaining a professional attitude to their jobs. One of the major parts of the whole performance was the bus entering, spinning and leaving the stage; the pressure on the crew to manage this set movement alone was huge and yet was completed perfectly along with the rest of their roles throughout the performance and during the set up and construction.

Peterhead’s stage crew have been chosen due to the magnitude and complexity of set movement throughout their performance, which was not purely for aesthetical reasons, but necessary for scene changes and to hide entrances and exits of performers. The set movement was linked with the choreography which meant any mistake would have had huge implications on the performance as a whole. The stage crew had a good understanding of the scenery and how best to manipulate it. They carried out their roles perfectly and were an exceedingly well-organised and hardworking team.

"Silent Voices"

    The dance tells the story of the elimination of more than 10,000 men, women and children at the hands of the Argentine government between 1976 and 1983. Even today, the exact numbers of 'The Disappeared' and their fates are unknown. In this performance we show the haunting portrayal of 'The Disappeared' and the grieving mothers left behind with no answers.

COWES HIGH SCHOOL, Cowes, Isle of Wight
"That damned elusive Pimpernel!"

    The French Court, 1789. A time of flamboyance and frivolity. Shattering this façade, carnage and revolution. Across the channel, one man knows he must risk all to rescue the woman he loves. Leaving the gentile tedium of England, our gallant hero confounds the baying masses. When politics become personal, what would you do for 'that Crazy little thing called Love'?

ESHER C OF E HIGH SCHOOL, Esher, Surrey
"Don't Drink and Drive........Think!"

    Inspired by the campaign 'Don't Drink and Drive, Think!' our dance is split into 3 sections. We open with a night out and subsequent alcohol consumption. Section 2 demonstrates the power those who drive whilst being intoxicated have on others. Our final section explores the emotions experienced by both the drivers and those who have lost someone close to them.

HAVANT COLLEGE, Havant, Hampshire
"All for One"

    We soldiers marched off to battle, leaving our dearest behind. We fought as a team, a unit. Now we are no longer soldiers, but prisoners of war. As we're questioned and beaten, we think of those we dutifully left at home. What effect does this have on them? Are our captors forced into this? Will we ever be free again?

HORNDEAN TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Portsmouth, Hampshire
"Shall We Dance?"

    Why do we choose to dance? Cultural? Spiritual? Dialogue between performer and audience, which transcends the boundaries of language? Can we answer such questions? Or is it simply down to our own interpretations? Join us in our interpretation of dance, as a form of escapism, a personal challenge, part of everyday life and purely for enjoyment! So.......Shall We Dance?

MATTHEW ARNOLD SCHOOL, Oxford, Oxfordshire
"Dreams"

    The theme of our performance is Dreams. It is based around the people who influence our lives and shape the individuals we become. In the dance a young, innocent girl has a nightmare about the pressures to conform. It shows how everyday encounters can manipulate our behaviour and change the way we are.

PORTCHESTER COMMUNITY SCHOOL, Portchester, Hampshire
"Lest We Forget"

    We've all lost someone dear to us

"Bombay Dreams : Mumbai Nightmares"

    There was nowhere to hide, nowhere to run
    They locked all the doors, pulled out a gun
    The fear in the air, terror in the crowd
    The sights were horrific, the gunshots so loud
    On November 26th 2008 terrorists began a series of coordinated attacks across Mumbai. Our piece honours the 173 people that were brutally murdered during those events.

THE GRANGE SCHOOL, Christchurch, Dorset
"The Ocean's Wish"

    Despite the global ban on commercial whaling, the government of Japan hunts and slaughters thousands of whales and dolphins every year. Japan attempts to defend these hunts by calling it scientific research, but this deadly scientific research is nothing more than unlawful, cruel and unnecessary! We say: "Let's save these beautiful mammals and consign commercial whaling to history forever".

WALTON HIGH, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire
"Yes We Can"

    Every day throughout history, even today in 2009, there are those who continue to tell us - to tell me - that we're peddling a false hope. Hope that blacks, whites, Latinos and people of different faiths can join together. But we have a dream, we here from Walton High stand here and have a very strong and real dream: Yes We Can!

ST EDWARD'S SCHOOL, Poole, Dorest
"The Modern Frankenstein"

    Our theme examines the link between Victor Frankenstein's quest to create a man-made being and the modern epidemic of cosmetic surgery. Is our pursuit for aesthetic perfection preventing us to see what lies beneath our skin? Have we stopped appreciating each other for who we are and instead are we more concerned with what we look like?

THE HOLLYFIELD SCHOOL, Surbiton, Surrey
"The Door"

    Three children embark on an accidental adventure after stumbling across a magical door. The creatures they meet, whilst different, live in harmony with each other, sharing a sense of unity, pride and allegiance to their way of life. The inquisitive nature of the children shows how strong this bond is, when the creatures have to reclaim what is theirs.

THE PETERSFIELD SCHOOL, Petersfield, Hampshire (Showcasing Premier Team)
"ssh..OUT"

    In today's society, communication is simpler, faster and more accessible than at any other time. Why is it then, that young people can find it so difficult to communicate with others? They face barriers such as the inability to speak out, to be heard or to find the right lines of communication. Is help really a phone call away?

WINTON SCHOOL, Andover, Hampshire
"The Big Bang"

    Life is a wonderful and mysterious thing. Philosophers and scientists alike have tried to solve the riddle behind our origins for centuries but have never found a definitive answer. Was it created by supernatural intervention, or by the elusive "Big Bang"? Humans have desperately needed answers since the beginning of existence. Join us as we attempt to solve the puzzle.

"Factory Overload"

    Welcome to the G.A.S factory of the future, where individualism is extracted and girls are cloned to conform to social uniformity.

KING ALFRED'S COMMUNITY AND SPORTS COLLEGE, Wantage, Oxfordshire
"Fiction to Fact"

    Current day society breathes fear and destruction amongst the streets. Gun crime is here, it invades the population, destroying lives and families.

Gun crime brings fear, and the insurmountable loss of one precious emotion; LOVE.............

    Stretch is the new lad in school and life isn't easy for him. The school is already divided by two rival crews and when Stretch gets involved with a girl from the other side things get nasty. Too many young people take the wrong path in life; it doesn't have to be this way.

"The Boy in a White Room"

    The walls echo with unheard laughter and mindless whispers,
    But he cannot bring himself to escape back into sleep,
    Based on a poem, this piece explores how the boy becomes a prisoner of the white room, this white intoxicating environment that?s keeping him captive.

QUEEN MARY'S COLLEGE, Basingstoke, Hampshire
"SOLDIER 7823"

SANDOWN HIGH SCHOOL, Sandown, Isle of Wight
"The Hidden Institution since the Dawn of Civilisation"

    We are offering an overview of slavery around the world and through history. The black Africans who were sold, the prisoners of war who were forced to build the Burma Thailand railways, and despite slavery being abolished in 1833, throughout our modern world young girls are forced into prostitution while children work in sweatshops producing goods for the Western world.

ST GEORGE'S SCHOOL, Newport, Isle of Wight
"Everyone's a Winner"

    No matter who you are, where you come from in the world, if you are black, white, rich or poor it's the taking part that matters and everyone's a winner.

THE ROMSEY COMMUNITY SCHOOL, Romsey, Hampshire
"Chasing Expression"

    The theft of an idea inspires a chase through avenues of influence. Watch the idea evolve as 'Expression' reveals an alternative direction to 'Inspiration'. These two mischievous characters leap through ideas of the subconscious, twisting and turning between influences and experiences of their journey. Watch the story play out and see that our thoughts really can 'transport us away.'

    KINGS MILL SCHOOL, Driffield, East Riding of Yorkshire

    "Together we Dance, Divided we Fall"

      Leaving the comfort zone of the primary school we are faced with many new emotions: confusion, excitement, not knowing which path to take, feeling the need to be perfect, not fitting in or liking the reflection you see: teenage life is a part of things to come. If we dance together, we can overcome all changes and believe.

    PRESTON PRIMARY SCHOOL, Preston, East Riding of Yorkshire
    "Hands are Not for Hitting"

      Our theme is based on a story book of the same title read to us as part of our SEAL work on "getting on and falling out". Our performance starts by showing how hands, used in the wrong way, can cause hurt and distress. We then see how many good, kind, helpful and fun things our hands can do.

    TESTBOURNE COMMUNITY SCHOOL, Whitchurch, Hampshire
    "Think You Know Us?"

      Walking down a school corridor people see an easy world to understand from "chavs" to "geeks" to the "popular girls". This stereotyping is mirrored in the world of dance with "ballerinas" and "street" dancers. We are judged before anyone gets to know us. You have 8 minutes to see the real us, it may not be what you expect!

    "This is my statement....."

      This is my statement. In December 1980, Mark Chapman committed a crime that tore the nation apart. The assassination of John Lennon left fans in pieces mourning one of music?s most influential icons. Lennon?s mystical lyrics along with Chapman?s obsession with the Catcher In the Rye, led to the death of a man but the birth of a legend.

    "Ballad of the blade"

      Strong passions are part of teenage life, from the adrenaline-fuelled aggression of knife crime created when insult drives revenge, to the devotion of first love and how unrequited love produces vicious, deadly jealousy. Those who love, even the young, know the unbearable despair of loss and the grief that leads us to lose the will to live.

    COSTELLO TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Basingstoke, Hampshire
    "Injustice? It Just Is!"

      The representation of cartoons disguise the harsh realities that people have to face. If you strip away the happy façade in cartoons and fairy tales what are you left with? Reality! Drugs! Rape! A memory tattooed. A shadow never leaving, never fading. No happy endings. Does reality have to be like this? Injustice? It just is!

    HAMBLE COMMUNITY SPORTS COLLEGE, Southampton, Hampshire
    "Just a little bit of history repeating!"

      The Washington Post quoted - Anyone who says we're in recession or heading into one, especially the worst since the Great Depression is making up his own definition of recession!! - Wasn't that what they said before The Wall Street Crash 1929? 80 years later have we learnt our lesson or is it just a little bit of history repeating.....

    "Crime and Punishment"

      The number of offences committed by females has leapt 25% over the last 3 years. Our behaviour is changing. Fuelled by underage drinking, girls choose to lead reckless criminal lives.

    "Chained..."

      Many children are forced into employment, whether their families are ill, poor or they are born into this lifestyle. They work long days, sometimes over 56 hours per week, and some don't get paid. These children are seen as cheap material although they are the true working cogs of the industry. Can they be unchained from this way of living?

      How would you feel about something else's blood being on your hands? How would you feel about being wrapped in a dead body? Would you kill an animal just to look good?

    HERTSWOOD SCHOOL, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire
    "In Your Genes"

      Have you ever thought about what the future holds for you? Isn't it a scary thought to think some things are decided long before you are even born? Through our piece we aim to explore the affect of Genetic disorders and how they impact the life of the person and those around them.

    MONK'S WALK SCHOOL, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire
    "Knife and Death"

      Knife and Death. In a society where the status of knives is promoted and encouraged by The Media, we explore a teenager's struggle with her home-life leading her to look for a sense of belonging in all the wrong places. Instead she finds judgement, violence and death along the way. Where did it all go wrong? Is it too late to change?

    RICKMANSWORTH SCHOOL, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
    "Orpheus Descending"

      Tragically, Eurydice collapses in Orpheus's arms during their marriage and is taken from him by the Angels of Death to stand by Hades's side in the underworld. Refusing to accept his wife's fate believing that love will triumph over death, Orpheus sets off to find her not knowing what lies on the path ahead. And we are going with him.

    SEEVIC COLLEGE, Benfleet, Essex
    "When We Walk...?"

      We each leave our print on the planet, a cause and effect of our existence. However our traces are beginning to show. We need to stop wasting energy and protect our atmosphere and the place we call our own. Take notice of our footprints, our carbon footprints. We Walk, Do you...?

    Theme for the website expected from the school later ?"

    THE WYE VALLEY SCHOOL, Bourne End, Buckinghamshire
    "Happily Ever After"

      A familiar tale I?m sure you will find, with goodies, baddies and a Fairy Gok Father. Our story is a classic tale of unjust oppression, and good overcoming evil with a triumphant reward. As with all tales it begins with "Once upon a time", but the question is will there be a "Happily ever after" ?

    GALLEY HILL PRIMARY SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (Showcasing Junior Team)
    "Roald Dahl's Cinderella"

      Darling little Cinderella was locked up in the slimy cellar. She bellowed "Help" and "Let me out". The magic fairy heard her shout and quickly, in no time at all Cindy was at the palace ball. I guess you think you know this story. You don't. The real one's much more gory.

    TUDOR PRIMARY SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (Showcasing Junior Team)
    "The diversity of our world"

      Our theme is about the diversity of the world we live in. We have used ideas from Africa, India, Spain and America. We asked our friends, family and students from Hemel Hempstead School to help us. Our first track is from Sing Up which helps children to develop confidence and find their voice. We hope you like it, thank you.

    THEMES

    DURRINGTON HIGH SCHOOL, Worthing, West Sussex
    "Caged, bound and restricted"

      The demise from normality to perceived madness, focussing on Louis Wain a 20th century artist, committed to a mental hospital for his strange behaviour. Has society progressed since the days of lunatic asylums or are people's views, beliefs and behaviour still caged, bound and restricted ?

    MILLAIS SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Bitten and Bled"

      Malaria is one of the world's biggest killers. 90% of malaria-related deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa - 2 deaths per minute. Our dance portrays the melancholy and unacceptable fact that generations are dying because medication and mosquito nets are arriving too late to save the victims. To this day people still suffer mosquitoes, biting, sickness, suffering, help, death, and survival.

    OATHALL COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Haywards Heath, West Sussex
    "Operation Pied Piper"

      September 1939. Nearly 3 million people were evacuated from cities in danger from enemy bombs to safety in the countryside. Most were school children, labelled like luggage, unaware of where they were going or when they would return. Facing the trauma of separation the Nation was urged by Churchill to unite and strive towards victory, 'whatever the cost may be'.

    ORIEL HIGH SCHOOL, Crawley, West Sussex
    "Origins"

      The Fish swam out of the ocean, grew legs and they started walking. The Apes climbed down from the trees, grew tall and started talking. 2009 is the 200th & 150th Anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and book 'The Origin of Species'. Our dance how one man believed we became the way we are!

    QUEEN ELIZABETH II SILVER JUBILEE SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Your World, Your Choice"

      Re-cycling is the whole school project at QEII School this term. Through highlighting the 3Rs, "Reduce, Re-Use, Re-Cycle", we have been able to increase understanding of how each and every one of us can make a difference to the world and its future.

    TANBRIDGE HOUSE SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Tessera"

      Our piece explores the four classical Greek elements and how they explain patterns in nature. Each element has its own characteristics. Whilst all can co-exist in harmony, our piece questions the outcome of a shift in power when one attempts to become more dominant. What will be left when this fight for supremacy ends?

    THE FOREST SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Man or Machines ?"

      This is the first year that The Forest School has entered Rock Challenge®. Our entry is titled ?Man or Machines? With ever increasing ?controls? over our lives and more and more legislation are we being conditioned to become robots in a brave new world? We look into a future where humans are fighting against the robots to save their individuality.

    WORTHING COLLEGE, Worthing, West Sussex
    "Lines Divide, Hope Unites"

      Our dance is based on the book "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". It?s a tale of hope and friendship in the face of unspeakable and inhuman horror. The dance is in three main sections beginning with a harmonious Germany. The second illustrates the disintegration of society. Lastly we show the meeting and bond between two friends who face death together.

    DAVISON HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, Worthing, West Sussex (Premier Showcasing Team)
    "The Impossibility of Forgetting"

      Kathe Kollwitz had a long talk with her son when he decided to volunteer for the war. She gave him her blessing and then regretted it for the rest of her life. The news of his death came late in 1914 and of course the devastation of that loss was something that she, as an artist, tried to translate into her art.

    THEMES

    ARBROATH ACADEMY, Arbroath, Angus
    "In Seventh Heaven?"

      Rhianne is in the nightclub "Seventh Heaven" and is offered drugs. Everyone in the club says "no", but the pressure is too much for Rhianne who gives in to temptation. Her life then goes into a downward spiral and she loses everything, including her friends. If Rhianne is given the chance to go back, will she make the same mistake?

    ELLON ACADEMY, Ellon, Aberdeenshire
    "Web Of Lies"

      Lies, deception, dishonesty. Lies tear us up inside. For our politician, his life?s work falls apart when his wife and son tell lies, twisting and distorting the truth. Lies, the evil of our kind, weave their way into every person?s mind through the media. Don?t let lies over run, don?t let them stay and haunt you. We want the truth.

    FRASERBURGH ACADEMY, Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire
    "Be Proud"

      The Olympics is an event used to showcase the hardest working athletes from across the world. The Olympics are symbolic of the ideal that with effort and perseverance anyone can achieve anything in life. By not giving up when obstacles are thrown in your path, on the winner's stand or in the crowd, you have the right to feel proud.

    KEMNAY ACADEMY, Kemnay, Aberdeenshire
    "Smells like teen spirits"

      As many of our committee members are at the driving age, we have become more aware of the responsibility of driving. We realise the dangers of driving with friends especially with the added pressure of giving peers lifts home. Our performance tells the story of a girl who's night out didn't go to plan...

    MACKIE ACADEMY, Stonehaven, Kincardineshire
    "Respect: It's Elementary"

      Our Rock Challenge addresses the issue of the environment and man's disrespect for planet Earth. The message that we are trying to portray in our performance is that of the unparalleled strength of Mother Nature. We feel it is time that we all realised that we are guests on this planet and should treat it with the respect it deserves.

    PETERHEAD ACADEMY, Peterhead, Aberdeenshire
    "Written In The Stars ?"

      Confident and enthusiastic. Physically strong with penetrating eyes. A born leader who likes the colour red. Does this describe you? And does it really all come from when you were born? Does everyone born in April really look and act the same? Follow our characters and see how much the stars control their fate.

    TORRY ACADEMY, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire
    "Are You Ready For Love?"

      Domestic violence will affect one in four women in their lifetime. Most victims will remain silent in fear of the consequences and uncertain of the options. Our performance follows a young woman in search of love only to find Mister Wrong. What are her options?

    TURRIFF ACADEMY, Turriff, Aberdeenshire
    "Gang and Knife Culture in Schools"

      Our performance is an insight into the world of a pupil who is affected by gang culture and violence. Through dance, we show the separations that are caused by stereotypes and the extremes to which someone can go when pushed. We then rewind to see an alternative outcome to show there is room for everyone in today?s society.
