Pupils from The Bourne Academy took to the stage at the Pavilion Theatre yesterday to rehease for the Bournemouth heat of Rock Challenge 2019.

Francesca Martin, subject leader of dance at Bourne Academy, said: "We started in October. The idea came from society’s obsession with selfie culture and beauty. It’s eight years since we last did Rock Challenge and we thought it was time to do it again. We’ve got 48 pupils from Year 7 up to Year 12 involved in the performance."

Stephanie Gould, Year 12 pupil at Bourne Academy, said: “The theme’s about beauty so we created a story around social media. We’ve practised during Year 9 lessons and after school."
