Star of the Sea showcased talent from the school at their annual talent show fundraiser April 26.

Dozens of hopefuls from the school, parish and South Surrey community auditioned in front of a panel of five judges on April 12 to determine the final seven who would perform at the sold-out April 26 show.

Hundreds who attended the show cast their vote for their favourite talent, with musical group, A Family Affair Trio – featuring sisters Michele and Erica Dos Santos and cousin Stephanie Kash – taking home the top honours. Michele and Stephanie – both Grade 7 students, play the flute and the piano, respectively, while Erica, in Grade 4, is a soloist.

Coming in as the runner up was Grade 7 student Mireille Perez, also a soloist.

Students were not the only ones taking on the stage, as school staffers performed as musical group No Direction.

Funds raised from the event will go towards the Grade 6 class outdoor-education trip.
