Following many requests for a talent show, the pupil council discussed running this event at the end of term. They placed posters around the school and encouraged people to sign up with their acts. The P7’s, Jessica and Leon, organised the event. They both did a fabulous job taking turns to compere the afternoon. The rest of the pupil council members were judges. When they were impressed with a performance, they rang their individual bells to show their appreciation. The judges gave positive and often cleverly worded comments. They were much more respectful than Simon Cowell!
Well done also to all the participants in our ‘Elphy’s got Talent’ Show! The performances were very varied with all ages of children from P1-7 entertaining us with their amazing talents. What a wonderful afternoon!
The audience were treated to an array of dancing; highland, tap, and disco. There were synchronised indoor and outdoor gymnastic displays, and several children chose to sing solos. The audience clearly enjoyed the wide range of songs.
There was also great applause for incredible animal impersonations, some funny jokes, a lively puppet show and super Power Ranger moves!
In the last act, the children encouraged the audience to join in with the dancing- Gangnam style!
There is an abundance of talent at Elphinstone Primary!
