The closing of the school year was celebrated with an operatic and musical entertainment. There was a large attendance of parents and friends. The feature of the programme was the operetta ‘ Lily Bel!,’ tvhieh was admirably staged. The cast was as follows;—Titania (the Fairy ! Queen), Mias G. Davies; Lily Bell (her favorite). Miss D. Hall; Thistledown (a ; rival). Miss 31. Fenton; Heart’s Ease) (a i fairy in Titania’s train). Miss E. Tithor; ; Euaora (the Naiad Queen), Miss N. Rodi den; Chorus of Fairies—Misses M. Tither, > \ L. Doherty, K. M’Dovitt, B. Marlow, A. | Birch, M. Daniel. A patriotic action j song, ‘ Our Flag,’ by the junior pupils I was heartily applauded; three kindergarten children contributed enjoyable recitations. The chorus and tableau, ‘A Nation Once Again,’ pleased the audience. Miss Daisy Hall represented Erin. Two selections by the college orchestra and a pianofortij trio and duet by the senior pupils were excellently rendered. A most attractive item was the floral dance. The chorus. ‘ Come, Bing the Fairy Bell,’ terminated an excellent programme. The Her. Father Delaney, who presided iu the unavoidable absence of His Lordship Bishop Verdon. congratulated j the students on their excellent concert: and successful year’s work. He expressed ■ the wish that their holidays would be j pleasantly and happily spent, and that i during their vacation they would endeavor on every occasion to uphold the high reputation of their college.

The prize-giving meeting was going or. when we went to press yesterday. As arranged, Mr C. Ruhen (chairman of the committee) presided, and Mr T. K. Sidey, M.P.j handed out the prizes. Mr Ruhen said that according to the examinations Mr Pope and hie staff had done an excellent year’s work. Mr Lenihan and Miss Lyders, who had" joined the staff during the year, had fully justified the very high recommendatidns with which they came. The committee had* thought the new building would be commenced, if not completed, by this time, but circumstances Tbeyond their control had been against them. As far as he knew, the new •Re had been bought and paid for. The committee had been in communication with the Minister of Education, but could get AO satisfaction. He thanked Mr X. K-

Sldey, M,!P., for the greaf assistance ha had given them in getting their new school.

Mr Sidey congregated the people of St. Clair on the progress of the school, and spoke of the urgent need to go on with the now building as soon as possible, as extra space was needed, the gymnasium having to bo used for class work, while repairs and drainage works were called for, and it would be a waste of money to spend it on the olcf~premise. Mr T. J. Walker, who acted on behalf of Mi‘ O'. Darling in preenting the Navy League prizes, called attention' to two points about the British Navy—first, that m its century of sea mastership it had never provoked nor entered upon a fleet action at sea; secondly, that it was the model of the Japanese'navy, the youngest navy in the world, from which fact he drew the argument that the old Navy was still quite up to date. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the Navy Leagiie. Short speeches were also delivered by the Rev. W. J. Ashford and the Rev. John Miller. The children’s entertainment was highly enjoyed, especially the singing of the infants under tho direction of Miss Alexander. The following names were inadvertently omitted from the Moray Place School prize list, Standard VI. :—Singing : Fred 1 Canter. Athletics: Wilfrid Tonkin. Diligence; Myrtle Scene, Henry B. P. ‘ Lucas, and Fred Canter.
