Pupils and teachers of Balemartine School 1945-6

Children who attended the school lived at Balemartine, Balinoe, Balephuil, Crossapol, Mannal, Hynish and West Hynish. The school as pictured was built in 1891, although there was an earlier building 100m to the west which was built in 1872 when the government took over education. The old school was demolished in the 1930s, while the `new` school was closed in 1972, after which all children attended the new school at Cornaig. The building is now a private residence.
