Diocesan Inspector’s Report.
“Division I. A very satisfactory division. The answering was for the most part very good in the Scripture Subjects & gave evidence of very careful work. – The Repetition of Scripture and Catechism was very good and what had been learned by heart had been carefully explained. – The answering in the Prayer book Subject was good & the written work was very good.
Division II. This Divn is doing very well too. There is in it this year a large proportion of very small children, but the answering was decidedly good and the Repetition also.
