Gbitsbal Bbmabks : - In this examination the school maintains the reputation It has already gained for careful and Intelligent work, and It is scarcely too much to lay that a high ideal of excellence to be attained is • prominent general features. In the Preparative Department standard 1 and P 3 are very good classes Indeed, a tendency to sing-song m S.I Beading, *nd some want of readiness m the oral eounttacr being* the chief faults noted. Classes P. 2 and P. 1 appear to have been left too.mooh to the papll teacher, and do not make tqpre than a moderate appearance. Standard 2 deserves to te treated generally as a good clasp, although m writing and geography it falls considerably ttefcw the expectations formed of it, The other bPbjects are good Standard 3— lt wonld be difficult to find anywhere a better cUbo than that presented m tbU standard. Its reading *b only fair, but Jn ail other respects it Is entitled to the mark* good, very good, or excellent. The Grammar and Composition are particularly worthy of note, as be'ng as neat perfection ai possible. Standard 4 reads well and gives very good answering on the matter of a book , of exceptional difficulty. Its written work aho' shows good teaching and good Intelligence, especially m grammar, composition and geography. It Is therefore the more surprising to find the olass break down completely In Arithmetic, coming to grief often over matter* requiring but the slightest application of thinking powers. Writing is only fair. Standard 5 Is a class of moderate onllbrp. Standards 6 and 7 are (n every way very good. ' The teaching of solenoe m the lohool (ohemlstry m S. 5 and 6 boys, and botany In S. 4 boys) is deserving of special commendation. Order and discipline are very good. — W. J. Anderson, Inspector. Average sees of standard olasses : —

The pet-eentage of par aes as given above (calculated on the new system) is equal to 93.4 cent by the old method of computation, which U a iplendld record. " It may also be mentioned here (m reference to the Inspector's remarks) that the Preparatory Department, Standard 1 •nd Pnplli 3 are rj' dar Mits SbhMc'iffe, o." ■lated by two pupjl-teachera ; Standard 2 under Alexander Jamieson, third year Snpll-ietoher ; Standards 3 and 6 under It Msyne, and Standards 4 and 5 under M!m Fwrcett. / There are now on tife ecbool roll 310 pupllf, and deiks are - /equlred for »U eUeaet from P upwards. Io these classes ftheie are 246 children and there is only desk room for 212. This matter needs the Immediate attention of the Board, which, we may add, m forwarding the •bore report, expresses Its pleasure at finding that the H»mpßiaad School contlnaes to maintain Its high' reputation, a • otroumrtinoe upon whloh the headmaster, the staff, the School Committee and the parents of the district are to be heartily congratulated.
