(FROM OTO OWN CORRESPONDENT.)
The annual school treat was held here on Wednesday the 7th, in a paddock adjcining the school ground. The first part of the programme comprised races among the children for which, Messrs J. Gardiner, W. J. Thomas, G. Vucetich and J. Williams acted as judges, and awarded the prizes which had been well selected while the master, Mr E. Smith, acted as starter. A few of the little fellows showed up in capital form, the starter (an old athlete) complimenting some of them on their style of starting and form of runing. At the conclusion of the sports all retired to the school to feast on the eumptous spread which had been laid out in readiness, under the supervision of Mesdames Thomas, Williams, Vucetich, Hampton,, Gardiner, Smith, Peebles, Galletly, Misses Gardiner (2), Vucetich, Bennison, and Moodie. After justice had been amply done to the good things, the tables were cleared, and the prizes for school work were presented by the master. The proceedings were closed by the children singing the National Anthem, and giving the master three hearty cheers.
