404 1877 06 11 'The children are in good order, but their attainments are not satisfactory. While Reading and Writing among the Infants, and Writing and Spelling among the older children are very fair, Reading in the Standards is monotonous and wanting in intelligence, and Arithmetic is defective everywhere, and is worked by very mechanical methods in the first and second standards. The latter standard was also unable to work on paper. Grammar was a failure above the second standard. New Summary and Admissions Register compiled in accordance with circular 65 of Education Department should be obtained and the names of all children now attending the school entered in the latter. The Cash Book should be more carefully ?.
405 1877 06 11 I think it would be very much better to confine the school to children under eight years of age, or to alter the internal arrangements of the premises which is not suitable to the present organisation'

More attention must be paid to cultivation of intelligence in the Reading in the large first standard which was presented. Arithmetic was somewhat weak, as it is also in the Upper Standards. The Infants' class is fairly satisfactory considering the smallness of the classroom - adapted for about twenty in which they are taught. The average attendance has increased by nearly forty during the year & the premises as they are at present are not adequate. Two of the books used by the first and second Standards are not suitable. The statement of Accounts in the Cash book was somewhat meagre. L. Tennant has passed fairly.

567 1879 05 02 'I am glad to find that this school is once more to be an all Infants School only. The former organization was so unsuited to the premises (which were overcrowded) and the change has so recently been made that the present condition of the Childrens attainments cannot be regarded as a satisfactory measure of the efficiency of the school. The order and discipline are satisfactory. The present set of desks should be adapted for Infants by being fitted with footrests, or new desks of a suitable height for Infants supplied; the Offices should be suitably adapted for Infants, and a Gallery should be provided in the main room. The dates of the various items of expenditure, and the numbers of the vouchers to which they severally refer should be entered in the Cash book and the vouchers should be numbered correspondingly.
568 1879 05 02 L. Tennant should be informed that she is now qualified under Article 79; but can only qualify herself under Article 60 by passing satisfactorily the Examination specified under Article 91.

916 1883 12 11 Received H.M. Inspector's Report, which is as follows:-
917 1883 12 11 'The children between six and seven passed an examination, which was just fair. The Reading was fair, but the words were jerked out, one by one, instead of being grouped; the Writing was fair, but the shape of the letters should be improved. The Counting was very weak, the children should be able to add and subtract numbers, between one and twenty orally. A fair beginning had been made in teaching colour, and a little was known of Farm. The Conversational lessons had not served to make the children know the names of common things. The Recitation was not distinctly repeated. A beginning had been made with the Kindergarten work. Arrangements should be made for keeping furniture, which is not part of the school apparatus, and which can be readily moved out of the school room, into the building outside. Hats and cloaks should be hung in the porch, and not round the room, where they look untidy, interfere with the order of assembling and dismissing the children, and in wet weather, vitiate the atmosphere. The singing was very fair. The Needlework was very good. The First Standard did fairly, but was weak in Arithmetic. It would be well to transfer the standard work to the mixed school, that the Mistress may have all the time to devote to the study of infant training'

1008 1885 01 05 'This school is in a fair state of efficiency and in some respects has been improved during the past year. The Elementary subjects are fairly well taught Reading is fluent and an attempt has been made to obtain modulation of voice, but phrasing is still not very well practised. Writing is now taught remarkably well except to the Babies' class which is left in the class-room, too much under the charge of a monitor. The children in the first standard are rather weak in spelling. Arithmetic needs very much more attention than is apparently given to it. The lessons on objects have not been given effectively, but a very fair variety of occupations has been provided. Indiscriminate answering should be discouraged, as it prevents the Discipline from being satisfactory. The Sewing is very creditable".
