As a result of a generous bequest, Fahan School is pleased to offer the Barbara Bartlam Scholarship for entry in 2021. The Barbara Bartlam Scholarship is available for a new student entering in Year 11, 2021, who may not otherwise be able to enrol at Fahan and is ideally studying Art as one of her subjects.

Barbara Bartlam was born in 1924, and commenced at Fahan School in 1936 in Year 7 and matriculated from Year 12 in 1941. The founders and first teachers of Fahan School inspired Barbara’s lifelong love of reading, art, travel and gardening. Barbara’s great passion was art and while a student at Fahan she would sketch caricatures of the staff, as well as producing the program cover for the School’s performance of The Pied Piper of Hamelin which was presented to Lady Binney, wife of Sir Thomas Hugh Binney, former Governor of Tasmania. After matriculating, Barbara went on to study art and in her final year at college, Barbara was employed as an Art and Ancient Civilisations teacher at Fahan School. Throughout her life, she pursued her love of art and travelled the world, all the while keeping Fahan School in her heart. Sadly, Barbara died in 2020 and the Fahan Community will treasure the memory of this remarkable Alumna.
