Greenwood Park celebrate milestone birthday

Greenwood Park Primary School kicked off their 50th birthday celebration last week with a historic reenactment.

Principal of the school, Ian Afrika, said the day was an emotional, but joyous occasion. There was a number of activities for the pupils, which included a ballet performance, a karate demonstration and music.
