the needlework done by the children attending the school during the previous twelve months was brought together, its excellence judged, and prizes awarded by ladies who kindly
undertook the task. The general character of the work was considered to reflect the considerable credit on the children, and on the schoolmistress too, and much interest

sale will be better patronised than it could, perhaps, be expected to be now. In addition to the prizes above-named a good conduct prize was awarded; and if friends of
the school would kindly help, as they have promised, it is unlikely that the authorities may be able to give more liberally in future years than they were able to do
