Last Thursday the children attending Lyndhurst School said farewell to their teacher, Miss E. F. Reistell, who has been mistress at Ijyndhurst for some time back, but is now giving up the work of tuition altogether. During this lady's term, the school has done excellent work, and all the pupils (with only one solitary exception) passed with credit at the last examination. On Thursday, before the school closed for the Easter holidays, Miss Phoebe Maginness, speaking for herself and her schoolmates, presented Miss Restell with a purse of money, and read the following :—"To Miss E. F. Restell —We, the Scholars of Lyndhurst School, wish, on the eve of your departure from amongst us, to present to you, on behalf of ourselves and parents, a small token of respect, which you have Avell earned since you have had charge of this school Hoping you will have health, happiness, and prosperity Avherever you may reside, Aye remain, Your Old Scholars of Lyndhurst." Miss Restell thanked the children for the gift, and promised that, on her return from Australia, whither she purposed going for a holiday, she Avould purchase Avith the money some article and have it suitably engraved, though she did not require such a souvenir to keep her memory of Lyndhurat green. She regretted leaving Lyndhurst, where she had been very happy, and had formed many pleasant associations which it Avas hard to sever. In bidding the young people good-bye she expressed her best Avishes for their future and urged them to be attentive to their Avork, and so improve themselves and greatly aid their new mistress, Miss Andrews, Avhose experience of Lyndhurst Miss Restell trusted Avould be as happy as had been her oavii.
