For those of you who may not know the reasoning behind the Diaz Cup. Philip Diaz passed away on the 12th March 2012. He had loved football and kicking a ball around was one of the things they had done together for fun. Therefore, his friends thought of organising a football tournament – a chance for Bayside to compete, have fun and maybe kick some teachers.
It has become much more than just an annual football tournament. it has become a chance to remember courage – like fighting for a future you know you will not see - and being resilient in the face of adversity. Philip had said, “It’s not about the years you don’t have, but about finding the courage to
achieve greatness in the ones you do.”
This year will mark the Diaz Cup's 10th anniversary. It has been amazing to see some of those friends, who put this tournament together return to Bayside as teachers and continue to organise this special tournament ten years on.
Sovereign Art Foundation Prizes
We are extremely proud of our students David Llamas and Alex Moreno, both in year 13, for their success in the Sovereign Art Foundation Students' Prizes. David won the judge's award for his painting 'Headache' and Alex won the Public Award prize for his piece 'Strangled by Numbers'. It is wonderful to have such talented students in our school.

This year the Crib competition was particularly difficult to judge because all the entries were of such a high standard and such good quality.
