1. “You get a cucumber sandwich, a cup of tea and a framed certificate that says 95 years,” Jenny Mackay said in July.
Education Minister James Merlino recognised the Dandenong North Primary School teacher and her principal husband Kevin for their combined years’ service to education.

2. “The tallest one jumped in and hit me with a baseball bat,” Dandenong North mother Radmila said following a terrifying home invasion in August.
The community rallied around Radmila, her husband Pero and their three daughters and took a stand against violence.

3. “It happened years ago and we just need to move on,” Greater Dandenong Councillor Maria Sampey said in October during debate about moving Australia Day in response to calls from Indigenous Australians.
