Beverley Schools show how to rock
THREE Beverley Schools have wowed judges in this years Humberside Police Rock Challenge senior event.
Longcroft School and Performing Arts College took second place with their piece ‘Tears of a Geisha’ which was introduced to audiences by student representative Emily Cox who said: “Delve into Eastern civilisation where the village celebrates the beauty of the Geisha. Embark upon a journey where Warrior and Geisha meet and are entwined by love. One Princess breaks this, throwing the village into disarray as her husband to be is not her true love. Though this she falls in love with a boy igniting chaos across the village.”
