Bartley Primary School, close forever, is situated at Bartley Road and has a Mount Vernon Cemetery at the other side of the road. Bartley Primary School has a high compound for children to run about and has high garden where all type of lady bird can be caught. After school, we could visit the nearest longkang to catch guppies. The Bartley Primary School is an old 2 storey building that has since torn down. I am fortunate to study in that school. In addition, the school assembly hall is an open door surround by huge tree, which is unlike modern assembly hall.
