When it comes to performing arts with a huge boost of adrenaline students at the Sir John Gleed School in Spalding know all the right steps.

The school’s Rock Challenge Team recently showcased their performance piece Time is Precious at the Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham.

The challenge is about students and teachers being involved in their own production from first idea to live performance, being the best they can be without the use of nicotine, alcohol or other drugs. The concept appears to work, with all kinds of benefits to schools and students.

As Sir John Gleed School is currently a Premier School in the challenge, the students were not in competition with the other secondary schools from within Lincolnshire who were taking part at Grantham.

Nevertheless, they were judged and presented with awards of excellence for School Community Support, Achievement in Drug Awareness, Stage Crew, Lighting, Video Performance, Drama, Soundtrack, Costuming Character, Visual Enhancement and Entertainment.

One of the rock challengers said: “We would like to say a big thank you to Enterprise of Spalding for their support. A big thank you also goes to Abbey Print for printing our ballroom scene, which looked amazing on stage.”

The Gleed School goes on to compete against 12 other Premier Division schools on Saturday, July 2.
