DOMINICAN CONVENT SCHOOLS, OAMARU.
(North Otago Times, November 25 .) During the past week these schools have had their annual examinations orally and in writing. On Friday afternoon the certificates and prizes were distributed to the children of St Joseph's School by the Very Rev J. Mackay, in the presence of their parents and friends. The following are the percentages of passes for this school :—: — Standard I, all passed ; Standard 11, all passed ; Standard 111 (low), 75 per cent; Standard 111 (high), 83.5 percent; Standard IV, 86 per cent ; Standard V, 82 per cent ; Standard VI, all passed. In addressing the children the Very Rev Father Mackay said he had been present during the greater part of the examination, and had had an opportunity of observing the progress made. The school, in his opinion, had taken a decided step forward during the past year. The answering in most classes had been nearly uniform. Thiß was particularly noticeable in the reading and spelling, which were very good throughout all the classes. This was to be considered as an evidence of good teaching. He recommended regular attendance, without which no progress could be expected. It was remarkable that those who had attended most regularly had the greatest number of subjects on their certificates. He was p^sed to see that special attention was paid to home lessons. The children that studied at home would certainly succeed.
