2. Life Skills
Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® is an opportunity for students to develop real life social and management skills which will be beneficial in the future. This includes organisation, coordination, communication, teamwork, problem-solving, motivation and leadership skills, production, technical, financial and creative skills. It’s also an innovative way for students to represent their school outside traditional sporting or academic arenas and work collectively towards a positive goal.
Performing on stage in Australia’s biggest venues and having fun provides a life experience that’s hard to forget as students and teachers see the rewards of their commitment.
Practically they also have a vocational experience through designing and building sets, make-up, fundraising and budgeting, planning and scheduling, designing and sewing costumes and of course, performing.
3. Creative Thinking
Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® strives to inspire, educate, and entertain secondary students and gives them a creative platform on which to express themselves. The practical application of creative thinking comes alive as many students gain real vocational skills in activities like designing and building sets, writing scripts or planning choreography, make-up, fundraising and budgeting, planning and scheduling, designing and sewing costumes and of course, performing.
After months of budgeting, design, construction and rehearsals they present their performance to thousands of excited audiences who are often amazed at the talent and achievement demonstrated by every school participating. Show time is a night of true inspiration and entertainment.
Awards are given to recognise these achievements including performance, dance and production, community support, student achievements, school initiative and more. Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® is an event produced by young people for young people and this gives it a unique energy and innovation.
The focus of this friendly and vibrant competition is on youth being the best they can be in a 100% drug free environment.
