St. Maarten – Students from the various public schools on the island had an opportunity to showcase their skills when the physical education department held a talent showcase at the LB Scott Sports Auditorium on Wednesday evening.

The purpose of the showcase, a first of its kind, was to let the parents and guardians see what the kids are involved in.

“We just want the parents and the general public to know what we are doing with the kids. Some people are still saying that we don’t have physical education activities at the schools, but this is proof that it exists and it’s flourishing,” David Forsythe, head of the department said.

Because of the limited space and time factor, the organizers picked five students from each of the public schools. During what turned out to be an entertaining evening. The activity involved kids participating in a series of movements, the developmental model and the wellness model.

“It shows how the kids can develop their skills while having fun,” Forsythe added.

An added attraction by a group of cheerleaders was the penultimate event of the evening, but the curtains of the event went down with the huge parachute like materiel which was held together by 31 excited students. Team work and coordination was the key factor in that exercise.
