This past Thursday, Southern Okanagan Secondary School welcomed back an old tradition.
Monthly showcase assemblies were once quite the occasion, but unfortunately they stopped a number of years ago.
The point of the assemblies is to bring students together and to let them know what’s going on in the school, from available clubs, to sports schedules, to upcoming events.
The assembly is completely run by students in Grades 10 to 12, with Tyson Marsel and Sahil Deol as the masters of ceremonies.
“The idea of MCing with Sahil was pretty nerve-racking at first but with the support of the other students participating in the assembly, I overcame my fears,” said Marsel, 17.
The assembly also gave opportunity to students to perform their talents. Maxine Houle sang “Can’t Help Falling In Love” while Emily Brock, accompanied her on the piano.
“It’s a great opportunity to display and appreciate all the talent we have in this school, and I hope that with each monthly assembly, more and more people will want to show the school their talent,” stated Houle.
As senior students, many want to leave an impression on their school, and the class of 2018 thinks that this may be the way to do it.
