Lowood kids Eisteddfod bound

LOWOOD State High School will take the stage this weekend to perform in the Raw Division of the Rock Eisteddfod Challenge.

More than 60 students will perform at Brisbane Entertainment Centre on August 5 in a division that focuses on movement and dance to tell a story.

The six minute routine was put together by teacher Kristy Lee Doyle, with a budget of $2500.

“Our routine is based around road safety and we have called the performance ‘Keys to the Future',” she said.

“Our performance looks at distractions relevant for P-Platers such as speeding, using a mobile phone, overloading or irresponsible behaviour in a car.

“There has been an increase in participating since our last Rock Eisteddfod.

“Last time we hade a cast of 50 and this year all students who auditioned were accepted.”

The group will include several songs, including some modern favourites such as Rihanna's Shut Up and Drive and Shannon Noll's Drive.
