Conception Bay North - Harbour Grace

Annual Examination of the Harbor Grace Grammar School, 1879

The Harbor Grace Standard and Conception Bay Advertiser, December 27, 1879
The Annual Examination of the Harbor Grace Grammar School took place on Monday last in the presence of the Directors and others.

Owing to the severity of the weather the attendance of the general public was not quite so large as on some previous occasions; but at no former time, during the incumbency of the present Teacher, was the examination itself more interesting and successful. We were very much pleased with the whole deportment of the pupils. Their fine intellectual appearance, their respectful attention to, and deep interest in, all the exercises of the day, as well as the general accuracy and intelligence of their answers to the searching questions proposed to them on the various branches which formed the subject of their studies - were such as very amply attested the laborious faithfulness of their Teacher during the past year.

The classes in History and Chemistry formed a new feature in the School, and in our view marks and improvement on the past: and in both these important branches the result of the examination was highly satisfactory.

The following is a statement of the standing of the pupils: -
