Tony Abbott Finds Few 'Fans of Handshakes' Among Kids at Sydney School

While out on the campaign trail in his constituency in north Sydney on May 9, Tony Abbott seemed to leave local schoolchildren pretty nonplussed.

In video recorded from an office across the road from the Manly Village Public School, the former prime minister can be seen awkwardly approaching some students as they go through the gates.

One or two respond with gestures as Abbott waves.

He then approaches and offers his hand to one of them, but is not reciprocated.

Anna Jane Wray, who recorded the footage, described the scene to Storyful.

β€œThe kids had no idea who he was,” she said.

β€œHe did get a few high fives after a while, which he had to work for, but not many.” Abbott posted about the encounter on Instagram, where he wrote, β€œNot too many fans of handshakes, but plenty of high fives to go around.” Credit: Anna Jane Wray via Storyful
