Hope you're not too exhausted! Here at <B><I>Cox Green</I></B> we sailed through the day stumbling around and walking into walls as a result of only getting around 4 hours sleep before being in bright and early for school the day after the finals!!<br>Just wanted to say <B>thanks to all the rocka crew for their support during the prem finals - think they must have been pretty exhausted after two previous days of open finals, but they didn't let it show and made the day a wonderful experience for all the pupils.<br>The standard was really high. Well done to Brynmawr for winning!!! Thought it was a fantastic, creative, exciting performance - we were really pleased for you!</B> Bit bewildered by the fact that the top three schools had all showcased on the same Portsmouth day though - that was weird!<br><B>South Downs - loved your piece</B>, so beautiful and dramatic. <B>Hi Jamie</B> - thanks for all your support to Cox Green!<br><B>Lytchett - what can I say? The most wonderful team to share a dressing room with</B>, such amazing support between our two teams, and a wonderful atmosphere which for me is the thing which really made the day amazing. Y<B>our performance always gave me shivers, and was so so moving</B> - all of Cox Green loved it and we can't wait to see you next year. Much love to Claire and my mum!!<br><B><I>Cox Green - what an amazing achievement! 2nd place!!!! We really thought we might not make it through our first year as a Premier school, we're totally overwhelmed.</I></B><br>There are too many people to thank, so if I forget someone, forgive me! But here's a try......<br><br><B>Thanks to:<ul><li>The staff at the school</B> for such support<li><B>The crew at rock challenge</B> for being lovely<li><B>The Lytchett peeps</B> for making our first premier event such a meaningful one<li><B>The parents, friends and family</B> who made the trek to support us (some of them twice!)<li><B>LISA KHARAS</B> for her AMAZING hair design!!!!! You are HUGELY appreciated!!!!!!!!<li><B>Stacey, Gemma, Jess and Simmi</B> for working so hard on the choreography and throwing their hearts and souls into the project. This project would never have done so well had it not been for your unfailing dedication and enthusiasm.<li><B>Sam and the backstage crew</B> for doing such complex stuff without being able to see a thing, and being such perfectionists!<li><B>Marcus, Russell, Jack and Az</B>, as the technical bods who again were such perfectionists they never gave up trying to make their elements stunning!<li><B>Sarah, Georgie and James</B>, for coming along when you've either left school, moved on or never went there but still gave up time, energy, and granted us HUGE amounts of enthusiasm that made the day easier and even fun!! (Sarah - next year when you're with Lytchett do you think I can kidnap and steal you?!)<li><B>Bob, Suzanne, Sue and Steph</B> for just being stars. I can't express how grateful I am for your support. I love our team!!<li><B>ALL OF OUR PUPILS for over-exceeding all expectations, and showing the talent that you have running through you.

The only enquiry, so far, which we wish to ask is whether a <B><I>timetable</I></B> of the rock challenges which are possibly taking place next year (2007 - especially for Portsmouth) have been reviewed/sorted? This is to help us decide whether we are definitely participating in this amazing event.<br>We look forward hearing from you<br>Colin<br>(<I>Ed: forwarded to the office, but if anyone else is also wondering, each year's DRAFT tour timetable is usually available here shortly before the end of this Summer term</I>)<br><br>++++++++++++<br> HEY EVERYONE!
