What Teachers Gain
Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® not only makes the facilitation of student learning more achievable for teachers, it also provides teachers with an opportunity to get out of the classroom, get to know their students in a different environment (and vice versa) and have fun.
A lot is written about the unique opportunity Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® presents to students, however the event also presents a unique and exciting opportunity for teachers. You do not need to have a performing or creative arts background; whatever your teaching background you can stage a Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® performance.
Countless entries are run by english, science, maths, history teachers; many quite successfully. In 2006, Smith’s Hill High School won second place in the National Final and was directed by a science teacher.
In 2006, two Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® teachers were granted bursaries to attend and be involved in one of the Global Rock Challenge™ events to aid with their professional development. Fully paid airfares, accommodation and spending money and a whole lot of fun.
