Pupils from a north-east secondary school are preparing to take part in the prestigious final of a national music and dance event.
The annual Rock Challenge scheme – which challenges youngsters to star in and choreograph a short musical – continues on July 2 when teams gather in Grimsby for the Northern Premier Final.
Peterhead Academy will face off against school teams from Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Cumbria, Nottinghmashire and Angus.
All the teams will be battling to steal Thornton Grammar School’s title of North Premier Champions.
A spokesman for the competition – which promotes a healthy lifestyle and positive life choices – said: “The teams have spent the last few weeks finalising their performances since their regional heat and will spend the day at the venue rehearsing, watching and supporting all the other schools before competing in a spectacular evening show.”
In April pupils from Aberdeenshire competed at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in a regional Rock Challenge event.
Fraserburgh Academy pupils triumphed with their The Ugly Side of Beauty performance, which was praised for its “incredible vibrancy” and “show-stopping” hair and make-up.
Their performance explored the cruelty of animal testing, and judges were so impressed they sent the team through to June’s Scottish final.
Peterhead Academy – who have automatically qualified for the Northern Premier Final after winning last year – opened the evening with their spectacular showcase performance Claire.
The Premier Final will be held at Grimsby Auditorium on Saturday, July 2 in front of a packed audience of family, friends, sponsors and VIPs.
