“It is a great pleasure to visit the school: the children are in such excellent order and the tone of the school is all that can be desired. The children in both divisions answered very well in their subjects. Indeed the answering of the upper division in Scripture was excellent. The answering in the Prayer Book subject was not quite so good as in the other subjects, but this subject also had evidently been carefully done. The Repetition of both Divisions was particularly accurate and distinct.
This is certainly an excellent specimen of a village school – one of the best in my district.
