Schools can secure their place later this month for the 2016 Rock Challenge and J Rock tour.

Registration will open from 6am on Tuesday, September 22 for the popular performing arts competition.

Teams as small as 10, or as large as 135 students, can collaborate with teachers, parents and wider communities to prepare an eight-minute performance.

These preparations are undertaken over many weeks and months and showcase an array of skills in dance, drama and design.

Set to a theme of their choice, each school’s performance is original and can vary from tackling a political or social message, retelling a true event or an entirely imaginative concept.

For more details call (023) 9298 5710 to be added to the mailing list. Due to demand, entries are on a first-come first-served basis.

The event is looking for local sponsors. Anyone interested should phone (023) 9298 5716.
