Isle of Wight students steal the show at Rock Challenge

Christ the King students perform their Medusa inspired dance.

STUDENTS from an Isle of Wight school stunned judges with their performance of Medusa during Wednesday night's Rock Challenge open final.

Christ the King College pupils, between 11 and 18 years old, took part in the adaptation of the Greek legend, which saw the school triumph over nine other entries from across the south region.

Schools from across the Isle of Wight have been taking part and the competition is due to end this weekend.

Teacher Peter Gale said: "It's the taking part and being part of a team that are important. The competition is a bi-product. The really important thing is that the children improve their confidence, learn new performance skills and mix with students from other year groups."

For more on the Rock Challenge, which concludes in Portsmouth this weekend, please see next week’s Isle of Wight County Press, Friday, May 2.

AWARDS: Christ the King College — Performance skill, concept, drama, soundtrack, set design, costuming character, visual enhancement, entertainment; Medina College — Lighting, soundtrack; Ryde Academy — Awards of Excellence, stage use, concept, drama, costuming character, entertainment, lighting, achievement in drug awareness.
