CATHEDRAL Secondary School defended its Tadra Kahani title on Thursday night winning $2500 for their stage portrayal of abolishing violence against women.
And organisers of the event say they were blown away by the performances at the one night dance, light and music spectacular.
Total Event Company manager Loretta Jackson said the schools brought their 'A' game to the Vodafone Arena on Thursday night.
"In fact, I have to say that this year, I was blown away by some of the issues," Ms Jackson said.
"Like Basden College, this is only their second year taking part and they did a very difficult subject like financial literacy.
"John Wesley and Blue Light did human trafficking and we have always told schools that we want a strong positive lifestyle message but we want a message that means something to you."
Other themes included gambling by International Secondary School Suva and poverty by Lomary Secondary School.
"What I have found is that the themes tend to reflect what is high profile for the students at the time."
Lomary Secondary School was first runner-up winning $1500 for their efforts and the Best Concept Special Award.
John Wesley College was second runner-up with $1000 and also won the Best Lighting award.
Other awards were shared among Dilkusha Methodist School — Best Audience Response Award; Basden College — Best Costume Design; International Secondary School Suva won the best Make-Up and Best Backstage crew awards.
The Best Sound Track Award was won by International School Nadi.
