Trip down Memory Lane…



On the 19th June, Barty House resident Olive, took a trip down memory lane and went to visit Hollingbourne Primary School.

For the duration of her working life, Olive had been a school teacher working in Tottenham, London. She had a small break to have her two daughters and then had a list of things to go off and do with her life once they started school themselves. Except the day after her last child went to school Olive got a telephone call asking her if she would like to come back to work, and she just couldn’t turn it down.

Olive visited four classes at Hollingbourne where the children were eagerly waiting with lots of questions for her! Olive had all the answers and even sang a little song that she remembered singing to her own class. It was a wonderful experience for both Olive and the children, both learning from each other.

Read on about the changes Olive noticed when visiting the school, on the Barty House website.
