Total-G7. General remarks. —The building is in fair condition, but the space is barely sufficient for the number in attendance at present. Considering the unsatisfactory character of the attendance and the fact that the master is unaided, reasonable progress has heen made since last examination, and the general condition of the school is tolerable. Singing, drawing, and object lessons are omitted from the lesson programme. The discipline is of fair quality, and effectual in securing industry and obediance in school. W. L. Edge, Inspector. November, 1879,
