Feluga Celebrates its 90th Anniversary

​Alba, one of the youngest at Feluga, cut the cake with Louie Salleras, the oldest living Feluga student, befittingly with a chrome cane-knife.

After about 150mm of rain fell in the 3 days leading up to Feluga's 90th, there were many worried faces turned to the heavens. The council tents were up but underneath them was a small but significant lake.

Thankfully, on the Saturday morning, the rain stopped abruptly and a warm sun beamed down from a blue sky.

Past students and parents assembled at the Feluga Pub, a useful 400 metres up the road and with the aid of a vintage Model T Ford, a police road block and half a dozen bagpipes, they marched, trundled or were driven up to Feluga State School.

After a rollcall and a minute's silence for those who were not able to join us, speakers reminisced about particular decades at the school.

Kids' games, real coffee, a jumping castle and many items of memorabilia like vintage machines were scattered around the grounds and provided another activity to the catching up that was taking place under the tents.

It was wonderful, wonderful afternoon. The entire community of 300 or so people created a calm, joyous atmosphere.
