A team from Forfar Academy is through to the Scottish final of this year’s Rock Challenge, which will pit them against pupils from across Scotland.

To qualify for the final a final a team must either place first at their local heat or have been chosen as one of the highest scoring runners-up across all of the Scottish heats. Inspired by the classic story of Hansel and Gretel, Forfar Academy captured the audience instantly with their expressive performance ‘A Twisted Tale…’ which put them in second place behind Montrose Academy.

The final will take place on Friday, June 12 at The Caird Hall in Dundee.

George Cooil, chairman of the Be Your Best Foundation which organises the event said: “It has been a pleasure to watch such a diverse and high quality range of performances already so far on this year’s tour and the finals are sure to be exceptional evenings.”
