Staff and students from Arthur Pechey School came together in support of the Humboldt Broncos.

A student talent show raised just over 300 dollars for the Humboldt team, which was devastated by a tragic crash April 6 that left 16 dead. Four members of the Broncos organization remained in hospital nearly a month later, according to an update from the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

“It’s nice to be able to give back to the community and help a cause that’s really important,” Grade 8 student Tazana Nilson said. “I think every kid should be able to participate and show off their talents, because it’s really good for self-esteem.”

Nilson started singing when she was seven years old, and incorporated a ukulele into her performance at her father’s recommendation. She said she wanted to participate in the school’s talent show because it’s her last year at Arthur Pechey, and she hadn’t been involved since she performed when she was in Grade 5.

The talent show was coordinated by teachers Kimberly Anderson and Kayla Mugford. Anderson said she and the student leadership council have always tried to support local causes, and the impact of the bus crash hit home personally and professionally.

“We’ve really come together once again as a school to support one another,” Anderson said. “It’s pretty amazing to see that,”
