It was lovely to be able to relax and enjoy the day - both staff and students participated.

Lee Figueras Award
Lee Figueras was a Bayside student who died in 1995 in a motorcycle accident. He is remembered as being an incredibly pleasant student who wanted to do well and always tried his best. He found academic studies difficult but he always tried his best. His English teacher Mary Chiappe never forgot him and she started this award in his memory. It is awarded each year to a student who has overcome diversity to succeed in education. Success is not measured in academic grades but in effort and determination.
This year the award was shared and awarded to Aiman Lamroussi and Adam Temsamani both in year 12.
This year is the 10th anniversary of the Diaz Cup and the first time that we have played the finals in the new school.
We kept it fairly low key as we are planning a bigger event later on in the year. We had teams from years 7, 8 and 9 compete for the football finals and teams from years 7, 8, 9 and 10 competing in the netball finals. We had some mixed teams in both sports in years 7 and 8 in both sports which was fun to watch.
Each session finished with a teachers' match. There was a very competitive football match and a very entertaining netball match as we watched some of our male teachers giving the sport a try. All in all a very fun day.
