Roseland Rocks!

On the evening of 3rd May 2018 Roseland Academy students raised the roof at the Roseland Rocks concert.
This annual event is popular in the school calendar, with students and staff taking to the stage to perform.
Students of all ages put on a great show, with performances from a range of rock bands and ensembles including the Roseland Samba Band and GCSE Music Students. The quality and quantity of musicians provided a real sense of enthusiasm and community spirit, whilst the behind-the-scenes team equally showcased their talent through atmospheric sound and lighting.
Expressive Arts Development Officer Miss Polley said, “Roseland Rocks is an event that gives students a platform to showcase their creativity and talent. All the staff in the Design, Performance & Technology department are very proud of the hard work students put into rehearsals, it really paid off on the night.”
