This year ALNS students will be taking part in the annual Rock Challenge competition. This event aims to promote a drug free high and allow students the opportunity to have a drug free high by performing to a live audience.
Students and staff have been working hard to choreograph a performance called ‘If not us who, if not now then when?’ which is based on the Syrian refuge crisis. As a rights respecting level 2 school we felt that it was important to use Rock Challenge as an opportunity to raise people’s awareness of the crisis in Syria. We have tried to show in the piece how families are having to make life changing decisions in order to protect their family and are having to give up everything that they know and own. They then are faced with a terrible treacherous journey which can have fatal consequences. ALNS students will be performing on Tuesday 28th February.
