I have no idea why ... maybe cos i like the song, i don't know.<br>I remember the year when <B><I>the "can can" from Moulin Rouge</I></B> was massive.

Scotland? Good Luck, everyone, and above all - HAVE FUN !</B><br>John (Editor :)</I></p> <p><font color="BLUE"><b>Feb 9th 2006</b></font> (10 messages)</p> <p>Rock Challenge Crew! It is <B><I>sooo</I></B> long since I have sent a message - apologies all round. We have been extremely busy getting everything ready, and it is now starting to come together here at Cowes High.<br><br><B>It s all a bit exciting (and scary!) this year as we are going for a completely different approach. The project is still being run by a fabulous group of students, but this year it is part of their studies for AS Performing Arts, which is really cool. They would probably have been involved anyway - this way it helps towards their coursework as well. It also means that we can devote quite a bit of lesson time to planning, organising etc. Would recommend this approach to anyone.<br><br><I>Lots of participants as usual this year - we had nearly 300 people audition for the 80-odd places on the dance team. Fortunately lots of those who didn't make it are helping out with stage and costumes, which is an incredibly valuable and important role. Everyone is putting in so many hours - dead proud of them all.</I></b><br><br>As I mentioned, it s all a bit different this year for us. Don t want to give too much away (not yet!) but everything has undergone a radical reappraisal. Really hope everyone else enjoys the new direction that we are taking things in.<br><br><B>I am so excited about this year. There is already such a good buzz. I can't wait to see what the other teams come up with - the standard just keeps getting higher. It will be great to welcome the 2 new schools to our heat (day 2 in Southampton) as well as see some of our old buddies again ... we re travelling over with (and "buddying" with) Solent Middle as usual. I love seeing the amazing stuff they come up with, especially their soundtrack which is always cool.</B><br><br>Speaking of which, some of my management team students and I were discussing music for this year, and trying to guess which tunes were going to be the "big" Rocka tracks in 2006. Anyone like to throw some ideas into the ring? <B>What will be THE songs that we all go for this year? Remember a few years ago when Moulin Rouge was released and everyone was using FatBoy Slim's "Because you Can"? About 5 schools in our heat used it - but all in completely different ways. I love the way Rocka encourages people to be really creative in their use of popular music. So come on, what are we going to hear a lot of this year??</B><br><br>Anyway, have written a ridiculously long message (as usual!). Really ought to go and do some planning or marking, or something.<br><B>Good luck to everyone who is competing at Aberdeen (not long now!) and all the other schools across the country. Have a fab time, you wonderful people!</B><br>Liz (<B><I>Liaison Teacher, Cowes</I></B>)<br><br>++++++++++++<br> Hiya everyone! <B>Hope you are all gettin excited about rock challenge!!<br>Good Luck to all the schools at st albans on the 20th feb</B>... and a <B><I>BIG</I></B> good luck to <B><I>Kings Langley School</I></B>!
