A number of ladies of the district gathered at Mrs J. S. Priest's residence on Thursday, March 9th., to bid farewell to Miss Diamond, who has resigned her position as school-mistress and is about to' return to her home in England. The afternoon was dull and foggy, but one and all turned up. Musical items and competitions helped to while away the time. Miss Diamond has only been in New Zealand a few years and Chorlton was her first school, and during her stay here she made many friends. The school children presented her with a nicely bound volume of Ella Wheeler Wilcox poems.
At the annual school treat there were no prizes for the year's work, but as three children gained their Proficiency Certificates it was decided to give them their pi"izes before they left the school. The teachers, with the aid of a generous donor gave prizes to the successful pupils.
The chairman also presented his annual attendance prize as it was such a creditable performance.
The prize winners were:— Leonard Gilbert, Elizabeth Craw, and Avice Barkle. The attendance prize was secured by Ethel Rodgers.
Nothing like "NAZOL" for relieving oolds, just an there is nothing like tbe son for tnak■to.yliizht. "NAZOL" is a sound, natural ■medy, easy to take, and perfectly harmless ■ doses 1/6.
