The class are making good progress. The attendance of the members is regular, and they take a keen interest in the work. Mrs Seamer is to . be congratulated on the line spirit displayed. The Young Men's Class had the privilege of sending their leader I.Mr (I. Brown) to traitv'for the ministry. This necessitated the appointment of a new leader, Mr W. T. Herner being appointed, with Mr W. Brown as assistant. Under their leadership the class have done good work. As heretofore, they are- located in the church. A good attendance is found Sunday by Sunday, and members are urged to increase this. Mesdames lies and Newell are doing good work in the cradle roll department. The new arrivals in the district are regularly visited, their birthdays remembered, and a good number have been transferred to the primary department. The infant class are. still under the charge of Mrs Stevenson and Miss Bennett. A vi.-dt to the church vestry reveals an inspiring sight. Between 40 and 50 infants are gathered, sitting in their ovai little chairs, with sand-tray exhibitions, pictures, and action songs in full swing. We recommend this class to parents and friends. During the year a fund was inaugurated by the minister of the church, and carried on by Mr J. Kernohan, which has for its object the wiping out of the debt on tho school building. We acknowledge the practical aid of many parents and friends in making weekly contributions for this purpose. The attendance of the main portion of the school has been well maintained. The superintendent (Mr K. Aslin). who has held that position for the la-t 12 years, lias been well aided by Mr XV. Fleming, who holds the position of assistant superintendent, and the stall of teachers.. These have given good attention to their work, and the .'cholars have shown a good deal of interest in the lessons and addresses delivered. In the incoming year we purpose placing in the junior departments some graded literature, with the idea of further assisting in the scholars' knowledge of the Scriptures.''
