    THEMES

    ALNESS ACADEMY, Ross and Cromarty
    "Alness West Side Story"

      Our entry is based on West Side Story. Instead of the Jets and the Sharks, our version sees the Polish immigrants fighting the locals of Alness. Fighting between the two sides has been an issue in Alness in the past. Happily, in our version nobody dies and the sides are brought together through a shared love of dance.

    CHARLESTON ACADEMY, Kinmylies, Inverness
    "Two Different Worlds"

      The choices that we make in life can put us on many paths, some good and some that will lead us to a world of greed and self-destruction. For one young girl the magical numbers printed on her lottery ticket either spell a lifetime of glitz and glamour or a world of danger, but which will she choose?

    THURSO HIGH SCHOOL, Caithness
    "Choose Your Own Path"

      Our theme of 'Bullying and Peer Pressure' highlights the idea that all young people should make their own decisions and choose their own path to follow. Our performance shows the danger of not only alcohol but of the desire to be accepted by those around us.

    WICK HIGH SCHOOL, Wick, Caithness
