All smiles in 1st & 2nd Class!
New Junior Infants
Welcome New Junior Infants
On Tuesday August 30th, four new Junior Infants started in our school. The Senior Infants were delighted to welcome their new friends and had great fun showing them around and getting to know them.
3rd & 4th Class Historical Tour of Bartlemy Village
3rd and 4th class enjoyed a historical walk around Bartlemy village with John Arnold on
Wednesday 14th of September. We started below TVM at the 'Path Field' where people in times past
made their way from more remote townlands to Sunday mass. We made our way up through the
village as John recounted stories of people and building from times past. We learned about the
'Tailor's House', the old shops, post office, pubs, 'Band House' and the Fair Field. John told us that
it hosted one of the largest horse fairs in Europe and is it claimed that Napolean's horse
Marengo was bought there!
A big thank you to John so being so generous with his time and expertise. To read more about our
field trip take a look at John's article from the Echo in the link here.
Check out some photographs from our field trip below.
Chess club is back up and running here in Bartlemy N.S, led by Ms. Kennelly.
Children are enjoying playing chess together in the hall on Tuesdays. It is proving
to be a lovely alternative to the usual ball games for our lunch breaks.
The older children have been excellent at coaching the younger children.
All children from 2nd to 6th class are welcome to join at any time.
