Students graduate school of rock

Wimmera schools pulsated to the beat of rock ‘n’ roll last week when the national Boost Mobile Rock The Schools tour hit the region.
It wasn’t quite as chaotic as punk icon The Ramones’ classic Rock ‘n’ Roll High School but students made the most of every opportunity as the tour arrived at Horsham, Dimboola and Nhill colleges.
The tour provided hands-on music industry experience with free classes on a diverse range of music careers including tour and band management, audio and lighting engineering, artist representation and what it really takes to be in a band.
The workshops, facilitated by Mark Bromfield from Melbourne’s College of Creative Arts and Techology, opened students’ eyes to ways they could use their skills in the music industry.
At lunch time, each school’s gym was transformed into a live rock concert venue for the entire school to enjoy a performance from rising Sydney rock/pop band The Take.
The band has just released its debut single and won plenty of new fans in the Wimmera with a set of catchy original songs.
Rock The Schools will reach more than 50,000 students during its 15-week tour of Australia.
