In collaboration with students from The Ridgeway School, a group of over a dozen from The Abbey have been rehearsing for weeks under the direction of Miss Phillips to compete in Rock Challenge 2016. Yesterday, they spent a full day in rehearsal at the venue, G Live in Guildford, before the live evening performance in front of fellow competitors, staff and parents/carers.
They were delighted to come away with a number of awards:
Performers’ Choice Award Winners
Providing Most Entertainment Award
Best Video Performance
Nikee, Reece, Toby and Josh worked back stage on sound, lighting and video.
Mr Aspinall, who attended the event with the group explained:
“The students were an absolute credit to us in every respect - they gave their best, were superbly behaved and supported each other brilliantly. It was a memorable experience for every single one of them! We were all very proud of them!
A big thank you to the staff, Miss Phillips, Mr Molloy and Mrs Boxall, for all their hard work over the last few months and on the day.”
