Sacred Hearts Academy held its first-ever talent show recently in an effort to add variety to the usual school assemblies. Instead of student and faculty games, the talent show showcased student-performed hula, singing and dancing.
“I liked how everyone supported the acts, even if they were in different grades,” junior Chanah Tanioka said. She helped plan the event as a member of the student council.
According to her, the assembly was meant to spotlight students who do not normally have the opportunity to show off their talents.
Among the performers, junior Rachel Javier sang “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. Sophomores Catherine Loiselle and Elena Amado performed, with their instruments, “Mobamba” by Sheck Wes.
Both Javier and the instrumental duo won first place for their categories.
“It was exciting and refreshing to see fellow classmates being brave enough to share their talents and have a good time,” junior Isabella Johnson said.
