Although Year 12 can be stressful at times, there are so many exciting milestones that we get to experience as a community such as turning 18 and getting our licences. Celebrating these events with our classmates is a lot of fun and creates memories that we'll never forget. We are very privileged to have such a tight-knit and loving community at Bayside.
Friendship day was jam packed. There was much to do as home groups had to design a poster on what friendship meant to them. The works were incredible and unique. There was a banquet held at lunch where each home group brought food and the entire school ate together, then activities and games were held with teachers and students. It was a beautiful moment to see a school really embrace the spirit of friendship and the power of unity.
The Community Market was an incredible turn out. There were plenty of fun activities such as paper plane throwing, basketball competitions and even chalk art on the basketball court. Also, the place was filled with well-organised business like burger stores, T-shirts and many more. The market was a huge outcome and it highlighted the importance of community.
Mrs Campbell and Mr Kong's Year 11/12B homeroom held a paper plane competition at the Community Market after school on the second last day of Term 1. It was a great event with many Primary kids coming to try and build a plane and fly it the furthest for a small prize. It was a lot of fun and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.
For the Community Market, our home group Year 11/12 C decided to do an Easter egg hunt and a basketball knockout competition. There were a lot of Primary and Secondary students involved in the market. It was a great day filled with smiling faces and laughter, helping the school community come together for the amazing causes chosen by the VCAL students.
At the Community Market, we ran the stall 'Fresh to go'. We hired Lucas Holland (Year 10) to be our intern. We sold out of hot dogs and burgers, then made toasties which also sold out! It was really good to have people come back for seconds, and keep buying things after the stall closed. We raised $300 to go towards Children's Fortress in Africa. Thanks everyone for supporting us!
Mr G, Aaron, Amber-lee and I held a stall selling delicious homemade donuts. The Year 12 VCALs made them in our Hospitality class (Food for Life) the morning of the market . We made approximately 100 scrumptious donuts that everyone loved and the team had so much fun making them for the community market. In total we raised about $180 for charity, so we were very happy with our efforts. Thank you to everyone who came down and helped support the Bayside Community Market.
At the Community Market, Simply Mason sold out. Our rocky road jars were the number 1 seller so at the next market we are going to have to make more of those. We made $100 which is all going to the Breast Cancer Foundation Australia. Thank you to everyone who bought a jar, and we are looking forward to seeing you at the next market.

The entertainment at the Community Market was good. The people who played did some great songs and performances. The organisation can be improved for next time but nevertheless it was a really good day for music entertainment.
Our Business is Unified Apparel. We aim to raise money for the Gateway Children's fund. GCF supply primary education to the slums of PNG, helping to give children a decent foundation for their lives. We are selling Bracelets, T-shirts and Lip Balms.
At the market, we sold all of the stress balls and Luke's slime. We got quite a lot of good feedback and made $26.70.
Tom McLean and I run a business called Doggy Dees. We sell homemade dog treats and dog beds. We made $86.50 at the Bayside Community Market. We were very happy with how it went because we were very unsure coming into it and we sold all our stock.
At the Community Market we ran a stall called Tiny Treats. We sell different desserts such as Yoyo's, Giant Yoyo's, Anzac biscuits, and Anzac slice. We are bringing in brownies soon also. Our charity we are giving to is Kids with Cancer and the amount we raised at the market was $78.
