ST John’s Primary School, Dennington, may have been the safest place to be for the government to hide from the budget backlash yesterday.
As protesters forced Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Education Minister Christopher Pyne to cancel a visit to Deakin University in Geelong, Wannon MP Dan Tehan found no critics in an assembly of youngsters at Dennington.

Mr Pyne had been due to appear in the south-west yesterday, but cancelled the visit more than a week ago.
His replacement — parliamentary education secretary Scott Ryan coolly told The Standard he hadn’t noticed any anger over the budget.
“I haven’t picked that up,” Senator Ryan said.
