  • Blazers - today we continue to reflect the ROCK philosophy through Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week.  Respect, Optimism, Courage and Kindness and today we explore Optimism. We encourage you to join student council at lunch to add to our ROCK Reflection banner in the main foyer.  What does optimism look like to you?   Optimism at Bayridge means to never give up, even when things look bad, to keep a positive mindset and help out others along the way. Your challenge for today- be appreciative of yourself, and look on the bright side when things go wrong, know that setbacks are only temporary.“Optimism isn't a belief that things will automatically get better; it's a conviction that we can make things better.” - Melinda Gates. Remember Pink Shirt Day is Thursday!!

The Arts Council will meet today at lunch in room 139. New members are welcome!

We wear pink today to stand against bullying!  We encourage you to join student council at lunch to add to our ROCK Reflection banner in the main foyer.  Pink hearts will also be available to show your support that bullying has no role in society!  To round off Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, today we are looking at kindness to honour our final rock philosophy characteristic. What does kindness mean to you? Kindness at Bayridge means lifting other people up not putting them down, and putting yourself in other peoples shoes. It is unbelievable how much better your day can be when kindness is part of it!

It also runs through lunch! No parent or guardian consent needed! Just bring your health card number! Protect yourself and others! See you there blazers!
