"What a lovely celebration for St Joseph's Primary School 100th anniversary in Orbost. I caught up with 98-year-old Ella White who attended the school as a child and went on to become a nurse in Gippsland and Melbourne. Ella lives in Orbost and has many fond memories of her time at the school more than 90 years ago. Terrific to see so many current and former students and staff sharing their memories of St Joseph's." Mr Chester said.
