Ysgoloriaethau Sir Ddinbych. Y mae adroddiad Mr. L. J. Roberts, Rhvl, arolygydd Ysgdlion o dan ei Fawrhydi, wedi gwneyd canlyniad ei arholiad am fynediad i'r ysgolion Canolraddol yn Sir Ddinbych, wedi gwneyd canlyniad yr arholiadau yn hysbys. Ac yn ei sylwadau ar yr arholiadau y mae yn dywedyd amryw bethau gwir deilwng o sylw, a da y gwnelid ddal sylw arnynt. Rhag gwneyd cam a sylwadau Mr. Roberts trwy ceisio eu cyfieithu, dodwn hwy yma yn yr iaith yr ysgrifenodd hwynt The steady increase in the number of candi- dates which has been noticeable from year to year has continued. In 1905 the number was 333 (a marked increase over that of any pre- YIOUS year), last year, it was 359, and this year It has leapt up to 460, an increase by just over 100 over the highest number hitherto reached. The largest increase has been at Wrexham, where the total (boys and girls) is 40 higher than last year and 76 higher than in 1905. But the largest increase proportionatly was at Llangollen, where the 16 candidates of last year have mounted up to 45. Unfortunately, the growth of numbers at Llrngollen was not accompanied by an inprovment in ihe quality of the work, which in the bulk was much Poorer than usual at this centre. On the other hand, at the only centre where the number of candidates was disappointingly small, Denbigh, the work was of extraordinary high merit, all the candidates, with the exception of two, gaining good marks, while the three highest Were among the very best in the whole county. The centre which had the fewest candidates of all was Cerrigydruidion, but it was the quality of the work which was disappointing here rather than the number of candidates, who Were perhaps as many as could be expected from this thinly bopulated upland region. After every allowance is made for difficulties Rising from the remote and isoluted homes of the candidates, the work here can only be con- sidered extremely unsatisfactory from every Point of view, only one of the ten candidates attaining, and he only just attaining, 300 toarks. At Llansilin, where the conditions are very similar to those at Cerrigydruidion, nine candidates (out of 23 who sat) did exceedingly good work, the lowest of the nine gaining 362 MaLrks, while three reached well over 400 marks. At Abergele the work generally was good, there being few weak candidates, while some of the composition and history scripts (particu- arv some scripts on Welsh history) were ex- cellent. The admonition given by Mr. Morris n his report last year to the Llanrwst centre to wake up seems to have had a good effect. There is some improvment in the work, but a strict guard against a relapse to sleep should be kept, for among the weaker candidates there ?^e many who need further awaking At Ruthin there is a slight increase in the number W) over that for last year (39), and this, hough below the high-water mark of 54 reached In 1905, seems a very fair number for the dis- trict. Excellent work was done by one candi- date, who only just fell below 500 marks, and altogether 14 candidates reached over 300 marks At Ruabon the papers of the candidates in district 1. were a solid, good lot; in Sub- district II. the work is much more uneven, and here only in the whole county are there discouraging signs in that the difficulty of Spelling English words correctly and of writing English with fair correctness is not surmounted by many of the candidates. The work at the Wrexham centres (boys and girls) is most satis- factory it would be difficult to over-praise the Papers of the best candidates. The top boy, Whose work was well nigh perfect, is the, highest in the whole county with 529 marks—a Rotable achievement. As an index to the high quality of the work at Wrexham, it may ue stated that of the 90 boys who sat no less than 66 obtained over 300 marks, and of these 40 reached 400 marks or upwards. The record of the girls is little less remarkable; out of the 86 who sat, 58 have gained over 300 marks, and of these again 30 have gained 400 marks Or more. I can only repeat what I said two years ago Neatness, accuracy, thoroughness, intelligence, and admirable judgment mark the work of an unusually large proportion of the I-arldidates; and papers which are now common :Would have been regarded as very exceptional In there excellence a few years ago.' On SOme of the occasions when I acted as examiner for these scholarships I predicate that among the candidates were many who would attain brilliant academic distinctions these predict- Ions have been abundantly fulfilled. Year after year the class list of the older universities 4tld other seates of learning show that the highest honours ar won by old Denbighshire scholars. The following are the names and marks of the first three children in each district:— L'ansilyn: Trevor Wynn Lovatt Davies, Uangedwyn, 447; Esther Gwynne, Llanrhai- .a.dr Y.M., 429; David E. Rowlands, Llanrhai- adr Y.M.,415. Cerrigydruaion: Hannah C. Jones, Tynant, 305; Oswald Salisbury, Cerrigydrudion, 290; Jenny Owen, Llwyn Tynant, 280. Denbigh: John Pierce, 508; Thomas W. Jones, 492 Thomas Edward Davies, 490. Abergele: Thomas Owen Griffiths, 466; Charles Philip Jones, 454; Lewis Jones, 438. 1\1: Llangollen Doris Edwards, 417; Selina ^arguerite Rogers, 397; Alfred Thomas 36C Ruabon, sub-district I. John R. Thomas, 481 Percy Fisher, 467; Joseph C. Simpson, 450. I Ruabon, sub-district II. John Edward jostle, 460; Dan Richard Wright, 443 Gerty Jones, 376. J Ruthin: John Jones, 497 .Catherine Anne Jones, 462 Hilda Pender Butler, 443. Wrexham (boys) George Herbert Randies, 29; Thomas Hope Cathrall, 515 Albert i fobert, 505. Wrexham feirls): Mabel Williams, 503; Ada Probert Griffiths, 501 Kathleen Haughton, 484. Llanrwst: Katie Williams, 416; Florence Doyle, 400; Llewelyn Jones, 391. Nis gallwn adael i'r Adroddiad uchod basio heb gyfeirio at yr angen mawr sydd am well- iant yn nghylch Llanrwst a Cherygydrudion. Yr uwchaf yn Llanrwst yw 416, tra y mae yr isaf yn Ninbycb (dosbarth hynod o debyg i Lanrwst) yn 490, ac y mae hyd yn nod ardal deneu ac anfanteisiol Llansilin yn gallu dangos ei hisaf wedi cyraedd 415. Dyna Fechgyn Gwrecsam wedi cyraedd 529 a'r isaf 505; a'r genethod yno wedi enill 503, a'r isaf 484. Drwg iawn genym weled dosbarth Cerrigy- druidion yn isaf o lawer ar restr y Sir gan na chafodd yr uchaf ond 305, a r isaf 280. Cofier pan ydym yn son am yr "isaf," ein meddwl yw yr isaf o'r tri uwchaf ar y restr, ac nid yr isaf o'r holl ymgeiswyr a eisteddodd i'w harholi. Awgryma yr Arholwyr fod Dosbarth Llanrwst yn cysgu," a bod angen am eu cadw yn effro. Nid yw hyn yn swnio yn dda mewn dosbarth mor fanteisiol i wneyd nod iddi ei hun gydag Addysg, a lie y mae y fath arian wedi eu gwario ar ysgolion. Teimlwn fath o eiddigedj wrth weled ardaloedd a'u manteision yn Ilawe: llai na'r eiddom ni yn mhell o'n blaen.
