The Day School 1893 April

Jane Lee

At a meeting of the Committee, held on March 20th, Mr. H. Grover was unanimously elected on the Board of Management, in the palace of the late Mr. J. C. Lucas.
The Report for the year was received, which was as follows:- “The School shows much the same strong and weak points as last year : Reading, Oral number, and Grammar being the weak subjects. Seeing how many changes there have been in the staff, it is satisfactory to find no falling off in the work. The Infants’ Class is in a very fair condition, and shows promise for the future. The staff should be at once strengthened, so as to meet the requirements of the Code.”
The amount of Annual Grant was £105 7s. 6d., together with £1 7s. For Drawing. The total was £5 18s. In excess of last year’s Grant. The deficiency in the staff of the School was caused by the fact that E. Verrall was compelled to leave us, through the illness of her mother. Steps are being taken to fill her place.
The average attendance for the year was 129.
Prizes were offered by the Rector and Mrs. Perfect, Mrs. R. Brown, Miss Bacon, Mrs. Blaker, Mrs. Weston, and Mrs. J. Peeling, for good attendance and needlework. The School was open 429 times, and Elizabeth Tims was not absent once, and takes the first prize. The following Children are also rewarded for having attended more than 420 times:- Edith Waghorn, John Blackman, Arthur Wares, Catherine Wicks, Gertrude Urey, Susan Davis, Maud Funnell, Beatrice Smith, George Bish, Sydney Funnell, Jane Thorpe, and Fred Potter.
The Needlework Prizes have been taken by Louisa Brooker, Annie Christopher, Rose Waters, Agnes Gander, Louise Lavender, and Elizabeth Card.
A further Prize was offered by Mrs. Weston for the child who is best loved by all her companions, on account of her gentleness, truth, and honour. The decision was arrived at by the votes of the who,e School, and Edith Waghorn was the winner.
The Prizes were distributed on Thursday, March 30th, at 12 noon.
