The Ashburton Guardian Magna est Veritas et Prævalebit. FRIDAY, APRIL 25, 1890. A COLLEGE FOR GIRLS.

Wanganui is in educational matters a fortunate town. It already possesses a grammar school for boys. which, owing to the status of its masters and^ the excellence of its curriculum, attracts to itself the sons of settlers from all parts of the North, and even from some parts of the South Island, and is now we see about to add to this a college for girls, which will -be opened under the most favorable auspices. A site comprising two acres of' land has been purchased at a cost of £580; and ; a contract entered into, for the erection, of a building, in the sum of £•2850', to which has to be added £-500' for fu'rpi;, ture, so that altogether the edifice .fully equipped will cost in round; figures £4000. The Board have the requisite sum in hand, and not only are'the" funds'for setting up the College available, but there seems to be.no difficulty Avhatever as to its future maintenance. There is an endowment of land,> the present annual rentals of which amount to and which will, in eighteen months time, produce an annual • sum I of £613; while the Rees bequest yields an additional annual income of £154, so that altogether the receipts from the endo\vments will reach the handsome sum of £767. Add to this the school fees, which, are expected to amount to £236, and the. College will have a total revenue of over £1000 a year, which should be sufficient'to defray the cost of an ample teaching staff. Altogether then the Wanganui Girls' College', thanks .to public and private beneficence, will start under the most favorable conditions^. and if as well managed as is the 'Boys' Grammar School will, doubtless, add to the fame of Wanganui. as an educational centre. <
