May 9th Report of Religious Instruction.
“ The Religious Instruction continues to receive careful attention.
The Infants did well in all subjects tho” I should have liked all to have taken an active part in answering. One child should be mentioned as especially conspicuous & ready to answer every question.
The Upper Division had again been very ably taught. Knowledge and Old Testament was particularly satisfactory: in other subjects answering might have been more general.
Repetition was accurately rendered & portious of Church Catechism & Old Testament.
Biographies were very nicely written. “
