Danny O’BRIEN (Gippsland South) (10:50): Happy anniversary to Woodside Primary School, which last week celebrated its 150th birthday. It is an incredible achievement for a small rural school in a town with just a pub, a shop and a few houses. But with 43 students now and increased enrolments already for next year, Woodside might be around for another 150 years. Hundreds of former pupils and local residents returned over Friday and Saturday for celebrations, including the most senior former student – 92-year-old Ray Campbell.
