PERFECT weather prevailed and over 300 people, including former students and staff, gathered for a magnificent day at Mena Creek State School to celebrate 101 years of ‘Living Through Learning’ last Saturday.
On the night before the official celebrations, a large number of the guests attended the casual Meet and Greet at Mena Creek Hotel on Friday night, where past students had the opportunity to meet, mingle, and reconnect.
Official celebrations held at the school included a photo and historical display, time capsule items from the 75th anniversary, and performances by Innisfail State College students, the Innisfail Community Band, and Mena Creek State School students.
Classrooms were open for viewing and commemorative merchandise, such as a centenary book, pens, mugs, and polo shirts were on sale.
Principal, Cameron Wedgwood, who has been at the school since July 2008, officially welcomed everyone and spoke about the school’s humble beginnings and rich history.
This was followed by speeches from Member for Hill Shane Knuth, P & C President Sara Lohmann, Cassowary Coast Regional Council Mayor Mark Nolan, and school leaders of 2020 and 2021.
