Celebrating history

Today, our beautiful children had the opportunity to try a class room experience from the late 1800s.
Their school, Strathfieldsaye Primary, celebrates 140 years of operation this year.
I spotted the deputy principal in appropriate garb, and the kids had a photo taken in front of "an olden days" car, apparently from 1908.
It was lovely, seeing all the different costumes that families had cobbled together, and the pride children had in attending the "olden days classroom".
More celebrations will occur this year, for which I am glad.  Definitely looking forward to seeing the Bush Dancing later this week! Miss 7 has been practising the Heel and Toe Polka, and was surprised that Mummy was old enough to remember it!
