Three day festival at Sullivan Heights Secondary

Hundreds of students filled up Sullivan Heights Secondary Friday (Feb. 22) despite the Pro-D Day in the district.

The school district hosted the 37th-annual Surrey Schools International Jazz Festival Feb. 21-23 at Sullivan Heights Secondary and the Bell Performing Arts Centre.

While there were plenty of Surrey and Lower Mainland school bands participating in the event, some bands made the trek from Vancouver Island and the Okanagan.

The schedule for the three-day event can be found here.
