An evening of glitz and glam has resulted in a new Mr and Miss Rocklands.

However, this time round the pupils will be given more responsibility than merely being school ambassadors..

Za-eem Salie and Kim-Lee Campher, both in grade 12 at Rocklands High School, have been crowned for 2016 and will be the official faces of the school for the remainder of the year.

The competition is run by the school and forms part of an annual fundraising initiative.

The school hosts their variety show in the third term of the school year and the showcase features pupils who portray spectacular talent and keep the masses entertained.

This is the 25th anniversary of the variety show and it was the best yet, says Irfaan Abrahams, a teacher at the school.

“What was different this year is that we had fantastic support from the community in the sense of sponsors,” he says.

Prizes included a gym membership, salon vouchers, tablets, clothing and cash prizes among others.

John Theron from Second Fam Records also signed one of the singers to his record label and will do a school demo song with all the pupils who participated in the variety show.

The highlight of the evening however was the Mr and Miss Rocklands pageant.

The 16 girls and seven boys were kitted out in their best and participated in a denim and white casual wear round before their full glitz.

Abrahams says this year they appointed the winners as full time school ambassadors and gave them each two projects to run.

They will each be responsible for initiating a social responsibility outreach project and host a fundraising event.

The pair also participated in their first official duties as part of the first night game hosted at the school last week.

As the winners are both in matric this year, the runners-up will take on their responsibilities from January until the new king and queen are elected.

The school would like to thank La Vie En Rose, Second Fam Records, Fieka Sports, all other sponsors and the parents and community who supported the event.
