Lake Parramatta
Today I went on an excursion with Madeleine's class to Lake Parramatta. Apparently it used to be a very popular swimming spot. The photo below was taken in 1938. It was closed to swimming in 1970 due to high levels of pollution. There has been a big push to clean it and surrounding waterways in the past 15 years, and the lake is now open for swimming on certain occasions.

Looks like fun! I love the school uniforms. They're cute. Sometimes I wish more American Schools did that. It would save so many headaches for many parents!
