CHESTER TECHNICAL SCHOOLS + The annual report's upon the work in the different departments of tho Chester School of Science and Art and Technical Schools are of a satisfactory nature, and indicate a further de- velopment in the usefulness of the institution. Reporting upon the Secondary Day School and evening classes, Mr. J. A. McMichael, B.A., B.Sc., states:—"Thore has been a remarkable increase, not only in the number on the books, but also in the number taking the full course of four years. The attendance throughout the year has been good, and the results in the ex- ternal examinations taken by the higher forms are most satisfactory. One boy has passed tho London matriculation examination, and six others have passed the examination of the Joint Matriculation Board, there being only one failure. These examinations qualify for admission to training colleges; and, at present, out of thiiteen boys in the school who are either actual or intending pupil teachers, seven are qualified for admission at least twelve months before the appointed time. Of the twelve eemior pupil teachers who were in the school during the year, ten were offered p'.aocs in training colleges; and in the preliminary examination for the elementary school teachers' oertifioate, two of them gained three distinctions each, two of them gained two distinctions each, and two others one distinction each. The prize given by the local education authority to the "best pupil teacher of the year" was divided between David Bell and Wilfrid Hulse. The upper fourth form took as part of thoir work the pre- lkninary technological course of the Union of Lancashire and Cheshire Institutes; and in the examination took tho first four places in tho whole of tbo Laiienshiio and Cheshire districts. Referring to the evening classes, the headmaster states that in the evening sohool further stps were taken towards a more complete organisa- tion. A considerable impetus was given to this work by tho ex-Sheriff (Mr. Lanceley), who generously offered £ 20 for prices in grouped courees, to those actually engaged in work- shops. Mr. Alex. Caruth had gained a national scholarship, tenable for threa years at the Royal College of Science; and Mr. Patrick G. Nagle, the winner of the president's go'd medal, had passed the intermediate examination in science (London University). In the examinations of the Union of Lancashire and Cheshire Insti- tutes they did particularly well, gaining eight distinctions and thirty-three first-class certifi- cates."
