It is with great pleasure that we pub¬ lish in this month's issue the reports of the Diocesan Inspector on the religious instruction given in the Church Schools of the parish, which show how the religious instruction of the young can be efficiently given in schools, which are also in the first rank of elementary schools with re¬ gard to secular education, and we are glad to congratulate the teachers on the results of their work. We are further very glad to mention the success of the assistant teachers of our schools in the competition for King's Scholarship, the result of which at the last examination held in December last has recently been published, when the following assistant teachers in our schools were successful:—Miss Francis Mary Ives, Miss Annie Williams, Miss Florence Ellis, Miss Ada Bland. We offer-both the successful candidates and their teachers our best congratula¬ tions. The reports of the religious in¬ struction are as follows : — REPORT OF RELIGIOUS INSTRUC¬ TION.
