Bring a non-perishable food item to get into the dance. Once you pick an activity, you must stay at that location. There will be food and light-up pins to buy at the Shark Shack. Show your Halloween spirit this coming Monday Bayside!
  • Halloween Dance Dj’s: Thanks to the tireless work of Ms. Lee, Ms. Stewart, Ms. Graves, and our principal Mrs. Dennet, Bayside has been able to secure two internationally famous Dj’s for Monday’s dance. Both of these Dj’s come from the West Pod School of Musical Excellence and will be flying into Victoria on Monday from various international locations to rock the Halloween Howl. Remember your non-perishable food item to get into the dance, you do not want to miss the show! Go Sharks Go!
