A durable stage set donated by a Wellingborough packaging company has helped a Northamptonshire secondary school to get noticed in a national dance and drama contest.

Students at Wollaston School enlisted the help of PALLITE – The Alternative Pallet Company, when they competed in the Southern ‘A’ Final of Rock Challenge – a national dance and drama competition held annually in Portsmouth.

Working on the school’s theme, “2084 – A World with Everyone Watching’ the Park Farm Industrial Estate based company was able to support their vision by providing materials so the students could bring their innovative design to life. Using PALLITE’s range of lightweight, yet strong paper packaging, they built an imposing tower of screens to represent the world being permanently under surveillance.

The school’s Performing Arts team worked tirelessly, perfecting their eight-minute dance performance based on George Orwell’s 1984. They intitally had to go through a tough regional qualifier to reach the finals and they were eventually awarded third place.

Sam Goodge, Head of Performing Arts at Wollaston School said: “The set design included the idea for two pyramids made from giant televisions. We needed something strong enough for students to dance on, but light enough to manoeuvre easily, so we contacted PALLITE and they were only too happy to help.

“With the product being sturdy yet lightweight it was the perfect material for construction and the entire stage crew of students were able to carry and build the whole set in under four minutes.

“During the performance the set was moved easily and smoothly by the crew, rotating each side to create a different location. Performers were able to use the different levels creatively yet safely and this gave Wollaston a real edge over the other schools. More than 100 students have been involved – together with PALLITE they make a fantastic team.”

PALLITE offers a genuine alternative to wood through its innovative range of lightweight, strong, clean and recyclable paper transit packaging designed to reduce the total cost of delivery.

Born from an idea to counter the frustrations and limitations of other pallet types – the company is changing the way goods are transported through its ultra-lightweight, yet extremely strong paper transit packaging.

Patrick Mulhall, managing director of the Wellingborough-based company, said: “We were delighted to assist the students and staff at Wollaston School and are thrilled to know they came third in such a highly acclaimed competition. The energy and enthusiasm shown throughout by everyone involved was very infectious.

“We pride ourselves on providing packaging solutions in a wide range of industries – set design goes to show just how versatile our products are.”

The PALLITE Pallet Box is well suited to the automotive industry and has already been adopted by numerous organisations. With a collapsible design that is known for strength and with a 25mm reinforced honeycomb wall, a PALLITE Pallet Box is proven to withstand even the most turbulent of journeys.

The company manufactures its entire range at a factory in Northamptonshire and supplies a range of sectors, including automotive, pharmaceutical and food industries, as well as exporting, where PALLITE is able to significantly reduce air freight cost savings through weight reduction.
