MARCS BabyLab celebrates 15th anniversary

MARCS BabyLab entered its 15th year in style with a fantastic children's party to celebrate this impressive milestone!

On Saturday 29 June 2013, the Bankstown campus of Western Sydney University was transformed into a children's playground with circus entertainment, face-painting, balloon twisting, fairy floss, popcorn and a petting zoo.

"Like a child who has grown up and matured before your very eyes, it's hard to believe the BabyLab is really 15 years old," said MARCS BabyLab Leader Professor Denis Burnham.

"We have made many amazing breakthroughs in this time, and without the support of local parents and their babies none of this would have been possible."

"Our 15 year birthday celebration was the perfect way to say thank you to the community."

Over 400 parents, children and infants enjoyed the morning of entertainment, food, and lucky door prizes with plenty of smiling faces and cheerful delight.

Parents were able to capture this momentous occasion with a dress up photo booth where their children were able to don graduation regalia and other fun accessories.
