Some of our schools , may make asomewhat better appearance m the lowest divisions j hot none have better work m. .the highest* which possesses qualities we should like to see more general among classes presented for examination m Standard. I. The arithmetic may be mentioned as of * quite exceptional merit. Of the standard classes, Standard V. and Standard -VI. are generally weH prepared. "Standard IV., though it ha.s its faults, m reading and nionfcil arithmetic for example, is on tho whole a creditable, product of well-sus-tained effort- and 'of fine qualities of intelligence m the teaching. ; Standard 111. is weak m dictation, and arithmetic, both of which may be regarded as tests of habits- of , accuracy, b^fc m other respects shows satisfactory preparation. Its composition may be commended. Standard 11. is for * the most, part very good, but lifts less'merit, than the, really admirable class presented m Standard 1., for which no praise could be too high, seeing that to form so large a group of children many whose previous preparation was imperfect must have been included m the class at the beginning of the year. , .
