  1. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    I love living in Leopold. It has lots of fun things to do such as: the Skate-Park,playgrounds,shopping for those of you who like it,fish and chips,picnic,sanctuary,tennis,football oval,cricket,netball and soon there will be Target,cinemas and Maccas.

    If I was forced to move to another state or Country it would be London because it’s basically a bigger city than Melbourne and I love Melbourne so London is my second favorite place. Leopold has lots of cool things for you to be entertained with. There’s also things at you have at home which is all your toys and stuff like that. So Leopold is a really awesome place to live in. And for all the people that might come and visit Leopold would really really like it just as much as me and many other people do.

    From Olivia. 🙂 😀
