THEY had come a long way and they didn't have plans to go home empty handed.

Students of Swami Vivekananda College stole the show after they wowed the audience with their performance on Thursday night.

With the theme Climate Change - You Control, the school from the West caused the upset of the night after it was crowned this year's Tadra -Kahani winner.

SVC Old Scholars Association president Vineel Nand said the old scholars put a grand performance based on the theme climate change through music, dance and art in front of hundreds present at the annual event.

He said they are happy with the performance and hoped that the school would continue the good work.

"SVC were the first Rock Challenge winners and after a long time my old school SVC decided to participate and I think their sacrifices paid off.

"Way back in 1995 SVHS won the rocks challenge now it has bagged Tadra Kahani after making a come back in 19 years.

Mr Nand said they would organise a meeting with the school principal and the management to decide how they would honour students who participated in the event.

"It was saddening to see few schools from Suva/Nausori region participating.

"I urge Total Events to stage next years Tadra Kahani in our very own school SVC or Xavier College or Prince Charles Park in Nadi."
