Locals Schools Earn Parliamentary Praise For Rock Challenge

North-east secondary schools have been praised in a Scottish Parliamentary Motion for their efforts in the 2006 Global Rock Challenge.

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has tabled the Motion highlighting the Global Rock Challenge, which is a drug and crime prevention vehicle in the form of a performing arts competition for secondary schools. The event is run by the Be Your Best Foundation, a registered charity.

Peterhead Academy continued their strong track record in the event and now go forward to the UK finals in Grimsby later this year. Mr Stevenson is a strong supporter of the Global Challenge and even picked up his own – unexpected – award at the 2003 event for his help in securing funding to allow the event to continue.

Speaking from the Scottish Parliament, Mr Stevenson said:

“I was delighted to be able to attend one of the Aberdeen heats once again this year given my long association with the Global Rock Challenge and I was even more pleased with the performance of those secondary schools from my constituency who took part.

“Peterhead Academy has perhaps the longest track record in the event and I was pleased for the youngsters and staff involved that they will once again be heading for the UK finals.

“I was present for the heat involving Banff Academy who gave a highly creditable performance which I am sure will stand them in good stead for next year’s event.”
