The upper classes shewed remarkable proficiency in mental arithmetic, algebra, geography, and history. Much credit is due to the Head Master for his strenuous efforts to promote punctuality of attendance. I am glad to observe that the, first standard class-room has been duly furnished with desks; and I hope to find the largest class-room another year equally well furnished. Iii-se year's re- marks respecting the two other class-rooms are still applicable.Infants School: This department is well conducted and uniformly well taught. The structural alterations and additions have been completed, and both rooms are well lighted and otherwise admir- ably improved in all respects. The cloak- room is well designed, thoroughly well built and exceedingly well arranged. The erec- tion of new offices suitably arranged for in- fants* will complete all the requirements of this department.
