BREAKING-UP CEREMONY. The broaking-np ceremony of the R. S. Reynolds Kindergarten. South Dunedin. took place this morning in tho presence of a la-rue attendance of parents and friends of the children. Miss Kelscy (president of the Kindergarten Association), who is well known in connection with kindergarten work, made a few remarks, pointing out to those present the benefits which the children derived from attending such a school. Then about 50 little children, with their teachers, inarched in and grouped themselves round a pretty Christmas tree in the centre of the floor. Under the direction of Miss R. Marline, the principal, they carried out the usual kindergarten exercises and sang somes in a way which convinced those present of the. admirable nature of the training they had received. Their age.s ranged from two to three and five years, but they carried out what they -were told with implicit obedience. The ceremony was a most pleasing one, and fairly delighted all present. Then the good things oh the Christmas tree, which Miss Keleey explained had been made by tho children, not for themselves, but for their mothers and fathers, were handed to the children, each of whom sought out his parents and made his presentation. The articles, which included serviette rings, calendars, and other useful goods, were- very well made. Then Mr R. Gilkison, on behalf of the Board of Trustees of the school, congratulated the teachers and the children on the result of their work. Ho wished the- teachers, the children, and their parents a very merry Christmas and ,New Year. Owing to the generosity of Mrs W. Fcls and other friends of the school, the children -were each given a •Christmas toy as usual. The teachers of the school are :—Miss R. Darling (principal), Miss A. Darling, Mjbs Rosevear, Miss Macandrew, and Miss Gray.
