Six Auckland Schools took to the stage to dazzle the judges with their dancing skills on the second night of Auckland’s J Rock show.  

J Rock is a Stage Challenge event for primary and intermediate schools that celebrates healthy living and getting active.

Event manager Olivia Kinane says the ASB Theatre was lucky to have another passionate and dedicated group of students grace its stage.

“The second night of J Rock was yet another outstanding set of performances by Primary and Intermediate schools around Auckland. The student’s hard work was well reciprocated by the jovial audience, as they celebrated with huge applause after each performance and win.”

Meadowbank Primary School took out the Spirit of J Rock award, a prestigious award that was earned by their sportsmanship and positive attitude throughout the day.  

“Tonight’s performances were really amazing to witness. The detail and the vibrancy in costumes were truly outstanding,” says design judge Jazz Heaven.

All schools received at least one award from the night as the main focus was on participation and having fun.

Olivia says the main aim of the event is for the pupils to develop self-belief, confidence, and resilience and to promote positive values and education goals in a non-competitive environment.
