The talent of Palsson Elementary School students shone brightly the morning of Tuesday, February 1, during the school’s Palsson Has Talent talent show.

During the show, over 30 students performed musical dance routines, played an instrument, or sang their favourite songs, to an audience of their peers and family members.

The show wasn’t a competition. Instead, it served as a showcase of local youngsters’ talent. The audition process reflected this sentiment.

“We didn’t say if it was good or bad, we just asked, ‘are you ready?’” Music/Kindergarten teacher Theo Lassche told the crowd, after students’ performances.

The teacher was quick to congratulate not only the students that performed, February 1, but the students that auditioned and determined themselves unready.

“Coming and giving a talent in front of others takes courage and determination,” Lassche said.

After Lassche’s show wrap-up, wherein he thanked the many organizers, principal Fergus Horsburgh in turn thanked Lassche for the hard-work he put into the show.

The show serves as a warm-up to the larger-scale Palsson Elementary School Spring Concert, to be scheduled for the near future.
