CORWEN. THE NATIONAL SCHOOL. The scholars of the above school re- assembled last week after their Christmas holidays, all in good form, and giving fair promise of continuing the favourable pro- gress made by them during the last half year. When closing for the holidays, each child was through the kind generosity of Miss Davenport, presented with sweets, oranges, Christmas cards, &c., which they duly appreciated. Again, they were the happy recipients of more sweets and oranges on the re opening of the school, It is needless to add that Miss Davenport's kind interest in the school, and its wel- fare is equally gratifying and encouraging to teachers and pupils, who all combine to thank her most heartily. We also have the pleasure of recording an interesting distri bution of prizes by the Rev. T. LI. L. Wil- liams, rector, on Friday afternoon. The prizes consisted of books, and were awarded to the following children for regular atten- dance, &c., during the half year ended 30th December last. The school was opened 197 times, and the prize winners have come out in the following order of merit:—Mary E. Parry, 197; Jennie Parry, 197; Adeline Stockton, i95 Bertram Vinton, 195; Alfred Bowen, 194; Blodwen Evans, 194: Alfred Dodd, 193; John Vinton, 193; Evelyn M. Vinton, 192; John Newns, 192; Sarah J. Roberts, 191; Joseph Parry, 190; Ethel Stockton, 190; Rosie Bowen, 18j George Edwards, 188; Lily Bowen, 188; Amelia Dodd, 185. A handsome book was also awarded to Edith Williams for best hand- writing. It is hoped that many more will next time be eligible for prizes. The warmest thanks are due to those who have come forward to assist in this way with the work of the school; and may the time soon come when many more friends will come forward and do likewise.
