Report of Religious Instruction.
“ The upper division of this school passed a decidedly good examination, the younger members taking an active part in answering & this too in Bible subjects which were certainly difficult for them. The mistress is to be commended for her good work.
The Infants were rather uneven, yet accurate answering in individual cases testified to painstaking preparation of suitable Bible stories & simple explanations of the Lord’s Prayer.
The high merit mark was awarded for Repetition and written work.”
