The Cnairman's Congratulations. Mr. ivaI Gwynae, in opening, said he presided with the greatest pleasure. realising that the De iicar School was i ulliiiiiig a very important function, in ins town. He had seen the results attained by the students, and he wished to congratulate Miss Jiay, her staff, and the -tuctents. on what they had done. That •vas a red letter day in the history of the 4chool at Swajisea, inasmuch as the esults and the attendance were fi rst. and oreiuost of any of the De Bear schools throughout the Kingdom. (Applause.) there was a larger number of students ihan evar before, and more positions had neen secured for students during 1915 than it any other period in the history of the school. And what was of greater value, v larger number of results had been ittained in the examinations. No less I than 186 certificates would be distributed hat evening, and 106 of these were from die Royal Society of Arts. He wished the public to realise that these examinations were not conducted by the staff of the ;chool, but by the Swansea Education Committee. During the year nearly 200 tuitions had been found for students. 'he school was endeavouring to provide •vhafc was sorely needed at the present day, ijirl clerks to take up positions in offices in order to relieve young mon for 1 he •'ask of protecting and defending the ■ country. One young man, Hubert H. Jooper, had in less than a year obtained even certificates. These facts reflected .reat credit on Miss Hay and her able assistants, who had accomplished much. icth through their organisation and uition. Mr. Gwynne's Visit to the Front. I After expressing his pleasure that the »roc«eds of. the concert were to be de- oted to such a noble object as the Re4 hospitals M'' liwynw referred 'o lÜs recent visit to the front. Pesfeimiets, aid the speaker were not to be found ,\t the front, where they were confident the. victory was certain for the Allies. Phenomenal Progress. I Mr. De Bear, in reviewing the progress of the school in Swansea, said a year ago he had the pleasure of announcing he had arranged for further rooms which would double the capacity. He came along in June, and found that their capacity ha<< again been reached, so he planned and re- organised and left with the idea that at Christmas, or probably sooner, they would have to double their capacity by aMrig much more extensive premises. When he came to Swansea ten days ago he was staggered to fiud they had g6t 60 perilously near to their maximum capa- city, so he was in the came predicament as before. Gratifying as that business -uccese was to him and Miss Hay, it was of very small account compared with the 'ducational progress that had taken place in the school during the same period. He lid not want to use any words of exaggeration, but he wished to convey to f-hem all his profound appreciation of the wonderful work that was being done. To hold the Royal Society of Arts, certificate was to have the hall mark of efficiency, and he was proud that MiEc, Hay had been ) hIe to coach so many of the students and induce them to enter those examina. tions. At the March examinations last vear nearly fifty students entered and they obtained 100 per cent. of passes. Speaking of .the outstanding successes of Tubert Cooper, he said Mr. Cooper found his way to London, and they very promptly placed him to very great advan- tage. In the placing of students, the De Bear School went much further afield than Swansea, or Wales, or Great Britain. I Presentation to the Principal, I Proceeding, Mr. De Bear said he wished to pay his tribute to the principal of the school who had brought about these ¡ wonderful results. (Applause). There were some 40 De Bear schools throughout the United Kingdom, and the amazing thing to him was that after two and a Ikalf years the Swansea school had worked its way through the whole group and cbme out first in the kingdom for volume of business, as Well as results. He could not yet understand how Miss Hay ha;11 achieved that wonderful result. She was I a great teacher, she had a wonderful personality, and was a great organiser and a woman of great business capacity. As a memento of the school's record year and a token of appreciation of her services, Mr. De Bear then presented Miss Hay v-ith a pearl pendant and gold watch, the latter suitably inscribed. A token of appreciation and admiration was also forthcoming from the students. and Miss Vera Mclnerny, on their behalf, handed Miss Hay a silver rose basket and specimen vases. The Principal's Speech. Miss Hay, after returning thanks, ob- served that the fact that Swansea should I be first in a huge organisation like the Do Bear schools was, she thought, after all a great achievement. But for them to have attained that in 1915—the wonderful year and the year of the greatest stress and strain for commercial schools since their inception—was perhaps a greater achieve- ment still. She could not, however, have achieved the premier position in the I kingdom without the loyal oo-operation of I the students. The prizes and certificates were dis- tributed by Mrs. Ivor H. Gwynne. The Concert I The principal item in the enjoyable con- cert was a dramatic sketch, The Child of the Regiment," cleverly acted in char- acter costumes by the members of the Sketty Amateur Dramatic Society. The leading artistes were Misses R. Jones, M. Lowe, K. Harris, A. Perkins, A. Fargie, R. Trotman, and A. Lewis. Individual contributions were given by Mi«= MV Harries (songs), Mr. Ben Howe (character sketc h es and tsmries? Mis: T?M??i? ??m- nerhayes (pianoforte and violin cello solos). The accomDamsts were Misses Bessie F.rua?? and Aileen E. S. Cole. Tire Prize-Wirtmers.
