John Marsden Writing Topic #501
Choose something that’s happened recently that you think will be of historical importance. Describe what happened and how you’ll explain it to your children**
The Wagga Wagga Rural Referral Hospital opened late last year. I think this is of historical importance as Wagga Wagga has been needing a new hospital for several years, going back to when my parents were children and now that need has become reality. I also believe this is of historical importance as Wagga Wagga is the biggest inland town in the state and having an improved and larger hospital would greatly improve the Wagga Wagga and Riverina community. That would be how I would explain it to my children.
