HI John !
Just so you know, there have been some big alterations to the bradford event, so here goes:
Day 1 now only consists of Sheldon Heath, Thornton, Central Technology College and Haycliffe (moved from day 2)
Day 2 consists of Buttershaw, Tong, Royds and Airedale
so sadly it's only 4 schools each day :-(

I bet kay and the team are exhausted as always around this time of year! Well, i'll be there to support you all on the day ... how could i possibly miss it!?
HUGE good luck to Thornton Grammar too ! I'm sure your showcase at bradford will be amazing ! (Hey danika ! Be proud, babe, very proud!!!)

Big hello to John and Wendy too ... long time no speak or see!
I think it's amazing how much i still think of rock challenge, even when i'm out over the atlantic or at the other side of the world in my job! Rock Challenge, you guys are awesome! Keep up the amazing work! And see you all very soon!

James (Ex Buttershaw High)

Well done to all the schools last nite ! You wer all fab, specially the primary schools (you did so well!)
Congrats St Bennies and Whitehaven (you wer great) but very well done to Southfield and good luck to us in Grimsby

KT x

Whooo !! Back home :)
It may have been a mini-heatwave for the London Marathon but it was low cloud and rain, rain, rain in the Lake District today (and not before time, judging by the state of some of the rivers and lakes)
OK ... on with today's messages ...
John (Editor)

We've been working hard for this ... we may be a small team but let's give a massive performance!!!

Lots of love - danielle (tramp 1) X
(Danielle ... I know that trying to run a team in a 16-to-19 FE College has to be about one of the hardest ways to do Rock Challenge imaginable ... well done to you all
John (Editor)

A big shout out for Manhood Community College!
Just had our last rehearsal today and it looks wicked, - everyone has worked really hard
Looking forward to tuesday - it's going to be a great day !
Good luck to the other schools competing - can't wait to see what everyone has come up with!!


OMG i cn't say how good yesterday was ! (My throat is actually killing me lol)
I was so proud of us all at bennies n haven n so pleased we gt placed cz it was my last year :(
(I cnt believe it. No more rock challenge for me :((
(Dnt worry, i am definitely coming back next year with you on the day so we can still be the loudest school there even if i won't be living here and more :)
Thank you so much to nichola and miss ramsey for putting up with me over the years, and i'm really gona miss our practices when i move. Luv u as much as framsey luvs haribo
lol (private joke lol :)
A very very big congratulations to southfield for coming first ! You were great, as well as all the other schools there yesterday
Lots and lots of love and kisses from the really loud girl at bennies and haven who couldn't shut up all day long
Gina xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ps TIM, TIM - GIVE US A WAVE lol xxxxxxxxxxx

A very big WELL DONE to the Cockermouth team for coming first on Friday at Carlisle - you were OUTSTANDING (this is the comment I have had said to me many times since Friday by people who were there)
As soon as I saw the rehearsal I knew we were in with a chance and once the costumes were on there was no stopping you all. You all looked great and wore your costumes well
Thanks for being so patient during the mammoth hair and make-up session, but it was worth it because the girls who were boys did look like (cow)boys! Even Ramsay felt the girls looked more manly than he did so we had to paint on more facial hair to keep him satisfied!!!
My ears are still ringing from all the screaming after the result
I'm keeping my funky pink cowboy hat ready for Grimsby. Let's hope the AS exams don't affect too many of the cast :((
Well done too to Stainburn and Firpark
I then went along to Carlisle 2 as well, and really enjoyed the night, so congratulations to Southfield, Bennies/Whitehaven and Nelson Thomlinson.
See you at Grimsby, Southfield !

Janet Wilde (aka "Wilde West Designs")

OMG what a truly wicked day friday was!!!
Well done to The Lakes, St Joes and - of course - our rivals for a million years, Stainburn!!!! You were all so good and we really didn't think we had a chance of getting into the top 3!!
Also well done to Firpark and Mayfield - you guys were so good as well. You really bring the fun to rock challenge, and I loved both your performances!
This is my last year at rock challenge (and after 5 years i really don't want to stop) but what a way to end it!!
Bring on grimsby, and i can't wait to come and watch you all next year!!!
Well done everyone!!!!

Love - Suzie xx (Cockermouth)

Congratulations to everybody who performed at Carlisle days 1 and 2. Two fantastic shows !
Thanks to Stuart and Kimberley (both ex-Peterhead) who hairdressed, face painted, stage crewed and follow-spotted for Firpark.
Thanks also to a wonderfully spirited guy from another team (whose name I cannot remember) who assisted Firpark on the second followspot: you showed the true spirit of Rock Challenge
The Firpark staff were excellent, giving up so much time and putting in so much effort, and are now well and truly hooked on the Rocka experience :)
, you did a fantastic job on the dvd (and you thought you were just coming along to assist backstage originally :))
And finally - to the pupils of Firpark Secondary School, who behaved perfectly all day and night (and that for some of you was a massive achievement in itself) and put in an excellent performance on stage at night
Oh ... Lorna and all the Peterhead crew deserve a special thank-you for lending us many of the costumes and driving to Livingston with the cow in the boot of their car! You guys Rock !
(Ed: that's a 300-miles return trip ? :))<br>Vanessa Geib

Well Done to all the schools at Carlisle Day 2 ! Your performances were great
Southfield's performance was amazing - brilliant costumes and music
Good luck for Grimsby - it's great we now have TWO Cumbrian schools representing us !

Hellooo there! Haven't posted in AGES so thort i would come and sey hello :)
The deadline of april 27th draws near ... a mere 5 days to go - how very scary!
We still have many a thing to tweak and finish by the day but in true sandown style i do believe we will put the finishing touches on around 15 mins before we perform
Good luck to the other island schools - especially Sandham, who are performing tomorrow :D

Apart from feeling about 50 years older from the stress of running global rock i am extremely excited and proud of our team for putting in so much extra time (Including u dedicated ones yesterday making hat on the court outside :) (Ed: Sam ... explain "making hat" ... "making hay", perhaps ? :)
A special mention to my fellow student leaders and choreographers - Sophie, Rosie and Rach ! Hope you are not feeling the stress too much. (Rosie, i can't wait to see ur dressing up again this year ... for those of u who competed at either southern grand finals last yea or portsmouth day 4, i think u will remember rosie for her plastic bottom, 5ft hat and madonna b**bs! OR a gigantic spider with a bowl on her head!) (Ed: ohhhhhhh yes ! :)
Wow, i truly am writing an essay here so let's cut it short ... good luck, evry1, and see u on friday hehehee
Sam (Sandown High)

Apologies to everyone for being delayed with messages these last 2 or 3 days :(
Thank-you from Wendy and myself for two glorious days at Carlisle (and it was sooooo good to see so many old friends there too, even from as far away as Peterhead in Scotland :)
Apologies for messing up your theme on the website, Cockermouth - 'tis corrected now :)
Sunday today ... a gentle drive through part of the Lake District for us (and maybe a short stroll up a small hill somewhere too :) before the drive home ... see you all later tonight ...
John (Editor)
ps it's been a 3-Rock-Challenges week for me ... I know that 'cos I'm now wearing 3 Elastoplasts. Next comes a 4-Rock-Challenges week ... ooooer ... best buy some more :))

Hannah G - (Miltoncross Premier School) xxx

I really thought that stainburn were excellent today but Cockermouth beat them to the post with their flawless performance. It was definitely a close one
Well done to everyone - you are all champions !

Stainburn can now not say that they are undefeated. They have strong competition and i cannot wait for next year's rock challenge to see what they both bring to the table. (Cockermouth were definitely the louder team though! My ears are buzzing! :)


I cannot believe it. COCKERMOUTH WINS! I am so proud of them all and couldnt imagine helping at any other school. You truly all earned it!
Grimsby, here we come !

Like the judges said.. it was something that could definitely be seen on a west end stage! You are so professional!
Love you all !
Now ... let's get practising (and get those costumes back in!)
Not so much looking forward to ANOTHER 6 hrs non-stop doing hair ... but it's worth it!

Emma (volunteer - costume and hair)


Apr 20th

Good luck to the wonderful bennies and haven team who will be shining on stage carlisle day2 !!!
This year's dance is awesome and considering you've been rehearsing for only 8 weeks i think you should be very proud and i'm very proud of you all!!
Hope all runs smoothly for our local teams at carlisle day2!! See you tomorrow, john, bright and early!!!
Good luck to all the other schools competing tomorrow!!

I am a member of Cowes High School and I am really excited about this year's Global Rock Challenge entry. Yet again we have created a stunning and breathtaking display with our school students.
I can tell this year is going excellent because this is our best performance yet. The competition should be no match to our Cowes High entry.
Look forward to seeing the finished piece on the day

Ahhhhhh ... sitting in the sun outside the Nottingham Playhouse theatre at a restaurant table, cappucino with a chocolate topping just by me, laptop open and wireless-connected to the internet ... what could be better !

Apr 18th

Ed: 'tis 10pm and I'm about to close down the little laptop and head down the motorway from Yorkshire to Nottingham, ready for tomorrow's event. Straight after tomorrow's evening show I'm hitting the night roads again, this time for two days at Carlisle. Messages may thus be erratic over the next few days ... but there WAS wireless broadband in Carlisle last year so Friday / Saturday should be good. Just Nottingham may be a problem.
ps loved Malet Lambert's production of "Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" tonight - thanks for letting us know about it, Gemma ! :)

Hello everyone ! Haven't wrote on here for a while - don't worry tho ... iv still been on checkin how all th events are going!!

Hello Amy and Jen at Longcroft in Beverley !
Cheers for the message, guys ! I'm pleased you like our astronauts (I hope you weren't joking!) Great to see other schools supporting each other!
Best of luck for the Prem Final in May - YOUR performance quality was EXCELLENT. I hope somebody from the "Humberside" area does well again like Archie did in 2006 !

We were really pleased with our performance and enjoyed watching the performances back on the Widescreen DVD - Very Proud!
"Ta a lot" (as they say!) to Amy and Jen. Thank-you again for your kind comments, and all the best to you and your team for the final!
Best of Luck to all at Nottingham!

      Following the fantastic sucess achieved by mx last year, i am really looking forward to another superb show. You have all been working soooooo hard again this year and i am sure you will do us proud. go mx go !

      The atmosphere at the Grimsby Auditorium on March 30th was fantastic all day and all the schools really "rocked the house". Well done to everyone who took part - the competition was really strong - but a special well done to Lindsey School and good luck in the open final when it comes!
      I was really proud of Hornsea School in their showcase performance: proud of how the Hornsea team worked together and really pulled out all the stops when it mattered. The support of the more experienced team members really helped the newer faces in the team and is just one of many reasons why your performance in the evening was so strong.
      Good luck at the premier final and well done for winning student leadership and 5 premier awards of excellence - those involved know who they are and also know why I nominated them.
      Sorry it has taken so long to write but I was lucky enough to jet off abroad straight after the event and only got back yesterday!!! (Feeling a great deal more relaxed than before I went! :)
      Kind Regards - Karen Hylton (Hornsea)

      Heya~! It's lucia here from cowes high!!!

      Love - Darryl (hornsea)

      Hi John!
      Just to let you know that Baysgarth have had three small articles published in the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph since the heat in Grimsby. I'm not sure if these are on their website, but if you google the website you may be able to find some references. I have saved all the cuttings as a memory of 2007!
      Hope all is well, young man ! (Yes - that's you, John!) and that those waiting to perform are looking foward to it! You lucky ones who have heats in April and May have LOADS of time to prepare! No Pressure then!
      The very best of luck to everyone!

      It now seems AGES since we were at Grimsby on March the 30th, and we're back at school on Tuesday! How depressing! Not long to GCSE exams either! AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH ! :)
      All the best !

      (Ed: Hi Jack ... searching their website didn't work for me, neither in IE6 nor in Firefox nor in Mozilla ... hmmmmm :((

      G'day John & all
      Anyone on portsmouth day 3 should bring earplugs as the purbrook park sambistas are going to be the loudest people there. 20 drums being hit full power, so all beware!!! Its gonna be a cracker (but it's annoying for rehearsals as i have to tune the drums at 7:30 every morning ... argh ... headache :)
      See you soon - Davey (Rockateer & Ex Park Community)

      Just thought I would say a big congrats to Peterhead's Liason pupil Mhairi Greig for being awarded the Lions Club award for service to the school community for her work to rock challenge at the school's prizegiving. She put in a lot of work towards their performance and she really deserved it! Well done!!
      Lynne (Ex-Peterhead team member and Mhairi's big sis!)

      Dear John
      Some time after 7.30pm I dropped my mobile phone in the sports hall area at Grimsby on Friday. I know someone must have picked it up as it has been used since (and I have now blocked it.)
      Is there any way you could put out a message asking for its return to Grimsby?
      And also ... when I unpacked our costumes I found one from another school in amongst ours. It is a white lycra dress with a net trim. I remember seeing children dressed in these costumes but do not know which school they were from ... they were possibly the school changing next to us in the sports hall. (Us being HORNSEA :)
      Thanks for your help !
      Kathy Webb
      I'll get both these messages out to the newsy-email readers too, Kathy

      A huge well done for Friday night!!! We couldn't have hoped for the evening to have gone any better than it did. The performances were spectacular!!!
      We welcome Liam ("Billy Elliot" :) to our very special team!! You really mixed very well with the VIPs and did Archie proud. Everybody thought you were fantastic, and many of the guests were quite emotional after you performed.
      It's amazing how far we have come and it's not over yet!! We raised in the region of £12,000 on Friday night. Just another £35,000 to go and we will be on that plane to OZ. Can't wait!!!!!
      We are so proud of each and every one of you!!!

      Hello everyone! Thom from ryde high school's committee (Y) just to say i'm getting so excited now about germany and the heats :D
      Only 15 days until we go to dresden to compete and then we get back on the 24th and perform in the heat at portsmouth on the 25th - gonna be so tired but i'm soo excited!

      Also just want to say that the committee are sooo proud of everyone at ryde and think it looks amazing! It's pretty different to what we usually do but hopefully will be a good change :)
      Whilst i'm here i might as well say how amazed i am at forelands middle school on the island as well for how chuffing immense they're looking atm. I love being in charge of two schools coz then i get to see two different performances on the day and everyone makes me so proud!! Thank-you so much (Y)
      I have been browsing the pics on here too and everyone this year looks outstanding and i think that it's gonna be an amazing year this year (Y) I'm gonna try and watch the premiers to see the schools we were up against last year and the new schools
      Well done to everyone who has already competed and good luck to everyone who is still waiting the big day! I know how hard everyone works and i'm sure everything will be awesome (Y)
      I can't wait - germany on the 23rd and portsmouth on the 25th :)

      It's now Tuesday and i am still as high as a kite ! We were not even part of the competition and already i am ecstatic in what we have achieved ! What a level of concentration - I just can't believe it - and yes, i shed a tear!
      Thank-you for making our job so worthwhile!

      Ahhh ... back home at just after midnight Sunday night / Monday morning... drove straight down to London immediately after the show at Grimsby on Friday evening and managed only one dialup access all weekend ... soooooo good to get home to broadband again and do some catching-up :))
      John (Editor)

      I would just like to send a message to all our Baysgarth Rock Challenge Team because I won't see you until after the holidays...
      Thank-you for such a fantastic day ! It was the best RC day yet and it filled so many of us with pride to see you give your best performance ! Wait until you see Amy's fantastic DVD - it made me cry!!
      Remember we live to dance another day and PJS and I have already got ideas for next year - so some of you'd better make sure you don't run off to John Leggott college 'cos you will miss out!
      Have a lovely restful Easter

      Love - Mrs V x
      PS A thank you goes out to all the Rock Challenge crew who were just fantastic with our students

      Yaaaayyyy! It's Ellie from Hornsea...
      Friday at Grimsby was amazing! It's my fourth year in Rock Challenge and I think this was definitely the loudest and most exciting showcase for Hornsea!!
      Well done to all the schools who were competing - you were aalll great - and congrats to Lindsey: good luck in the final! It was also great to see the other prem schools who were also ace!

      I want to say a huuuge well done to Hornseaaaa!!! I know lotsa people were nervous about the costume change (including me ! :) but everything went smoothly, and it was such a huge buzz to be on stage with everyone in blue and white in the finale! There's quite a lot of first-time rockas in our team this year and I hope you all enjoyed it!! I can't wait to do it all over again in may :D
      Massive thank-you to everyone who makes rock challenge possible for hornsea school... mrs webb
      and her great costumes, luke for building the amazing set and dianne for her amazing artwork on it, sally for her beautiful make-up and to everyone else who helped with make-up and hair, mrs taylor, miss smith and miss wood for all their support through the day, Mr Hylton for helping choose the soundtrack which takes hours and is aalllways great, Molly for doing all the lighting, kaye, aaron, lottie and sophie for the ace routines, and of course Mrs Hylton, who holds the whole thing together and without whom it all wouldn't be possible! I hope we did you proud on friday!

      Well done Baysy. You deserved 2nd (and even 1st) from where i was sat!
      Well done SV and PJS (if you read this). You should be proud of yourselves and your students
      I was sitting in the gods and it looked amazing. The "Is there anybody out there?" worked and the woman sat near me who supported De Aston even thought it was great!
      Well done everyone who is still in the shower getting rid of bucket-loads of hair-spray and hair-dye ... you deserve medals
      All the awards were completely and utterly deserved and the performance made me proud to say "I'm supporting Baysgarth" !
      You will come 1st next year!
