Western Heights High School has won Stage Challenge 2016 with their performance The Error of Our Ways.

The event was held at the Rotorua Energy Events Centre last night, with John Paul College coming second and Rotorua Girls' High School in third.

"Western Heights High School put on a brilliant performance ... addressing a good theme. It was really enjoyable to watch," said event manager Hazel Reid.

Production judge, Molly Chattell added: "Western Heights High School had a really dramatic start which was really captivating and the song choices perfectly captured the story. Overall a fantastic performance!"

Miss Reid said all the schools involved showcased their creativity and innovation.

"You can see all the hard work and determination that goes into their performances. Tonight's show reflects how Stage Challenge is a great pathway for youth to creativity express themselves and their values."

Stage Challenge & J Rock offers the perfect platform for students to develop self-belief, confidence and resilience, as the safe, fun and exciting atmosphere upholds key values of attending school, working towards realistic education goals, and staying fit and healthy without tobacco, alcohol and other drugs.
