The Day School 1893 July

Jane Lee

The Duke of York’s Wedding Day
The Mayor and Corporation, as is well known, have led the way, and the children, through the kindness and liberality of our Townspeople, are to have the enjoyment of a Special Fete on July 6th. The Children will be massed on the Day School basis, but the Committee hope that Sunday School Teachers will give their valuable service, and so does our Rector, on whom some responsibility lies. Full particulars will be made known before long, but meanwhile we would ask Parents to impress upon their children the absolute necessity of strict obedience to their Teachers when collected together in large numbers.
The School Treat
With an unexpectedly fine day, heaps of kind friends who cared not how they laboured for the children’s pleasure, and the delightful grounds around Malling Deanery placed at our disposal by a host and hostess who came and mingled with our crowd, the treat was bound to be a success-barring accidents; and so indeed it was. Never were we present at one which was more thoroughly enjoyable. The merriment never flagged for a minute, and all without the slightest suspicion of roughness or rowdyism. The Rector begs to thank all who contributed in any way to the days enjoyment, especially remembering Mr Gardner and his coloured fire.
A new and exceedingly handsome banner has been presented to the School by Miss Lambe and Miss Calway, to take the place of that which has headed our processions for the last 25 years, but of the same design, which could not be improved upon. They deserve and have our best thanks.
