PORTH COUNTY SCHOOLS. Principal's Annual Report. Mr E. Samuels, B.A., the headmaster of Porth County School, will at the next meeting of the Governors, present his first annual report. This statement indicateswith great clearness that the instruction is thorough, and quite in accord with the spirit of the splendid Welsh Intermed- iate Scheme, of which all true educationists in the Principality are justly proud. The following extracts from the report will undoubtedly prove of much interest: — "The attendance during the last twelve months was the largest in the County of Glamorgan. "Average age, 13.5 years. "Number of boys to girls is in ratio of 9 to 8. Average percentage attendance, 85.6. "The headmaster recommend that the Gov- ernors make a test to guarantee that any pupil admitted has really reached the fifth standard. Religious Instruction.—No parent has desired the exemption of any pupil from attending pray- er or religious instruction. SUBJECTS TAUGHT. Reading, writing, arithmetic, geography, his- tory, English grammar and composition, drawing, mathematics, Latin, French, Welsh, chemistry, physics, mechanics, and vocal music' physical drill and cookery to girls; instruction in piano- forte playing has been -iven. FOREIGN LANGUAGES. "Messrs Schofield and Holmes are organising a correspondence ij'hich will be opened in Sep- tember between the more advanced boys and pupils in secondary schools in France. One of these schools is at Le Mans, and the other at Toulouse. English letters written by French boys will be corrected by Porth boys, and the latter will have their letters in French corrected by the former. "One student has passed the University of Edinburgh Matriculation Examination in Latin to qualify himself as a medical student "If the more ADVANCED PUPILS were to continue at seiiool until June next, there would be several prepared to sit for the London and Welsh Matriculation Examinations."
