Parents' Review School.

Examiner's Report. December, 1902.

Again, an examination of the work sent in for report, as well as of the marks awarded by the parents, shows that a most creditable term's work has been done. The papers submitted are in a very decided majority of cases carefully and neatly arranged, well written, and clearly indicate that the syllabus has been loyally followed, but there is no improvement in the number of subjects sent in for examination.

History regains its former position as being the best prepared subject. English Grammar and Arithmetic show slight improvement on the whole. In Algebra, the few who have attempted the paper have done fairly. In Euclid, there are more who have done the propositions well; yet many still fail in the proof.

Natural History, Botany and Geography have been well done. Writing generally is good, but a few papers show that little or no care is given to the subject. In Class IV. there are several exceptionally good papers in Bible lessons and Literature.

The Dictation exercise is very decidedly good, both in regard to spelling and writing. J. B.

Francais, bon travail, la prononciation doit etre surveillee, quelque devoirs etaient soigneusement faits. J. M.

The translation of the books is on the whole very creditably done. The retranslation leaves much to be desired as far as grammar is concerned. M. D.

Papers will be returned on receipt of postage.
