Mercantile, Classical and Mathematical School, Carlow
Michael S. Clarke Returns his sincere Thanks to his numerous Friends, of all
denominations, who have, during a period of nearly twenty-six years, so amply
supported his School. Grateful for past and present favours, he is determined to
give up his whole time and attention to the advancement of his Pupils, on a
plan, embracing at once all the sound modern improvements in Science, and
methods of teaching the Ancient and Modern languages; and to aid his intention
has engaged an Assistant, from the College of Dublin, amply qualified in the
Classical Department, to enter those who are design for Academical pursuits.
Along with the English, French, Latin, and Greek Languages, his plan will
include the best modern Courses of Geography, History, English Grammar,
Elocution and Composition; also Natural and Experimental Philosophy, for which
purpose he is provided with a complete Philosophical Apparatus, and a Library of
well chosen Books, Globes, Charts and Maps for the use of his Scholars. He
purposes to keep up public Examinations half-yearly, whereby opportunity will be
given of judging of his plan that the proficiency of his Pupils, Strict
attention paid to the morals of the Scholars.
From the above considerations, and
the zeal and attention of the Principal, he hopes for an accession to his number
of Boarders ; and his Day-School, deriving all the advantages of the above
courses, will claim the attention of the Inhabitants of Carlow and its vicinity.
The Person who thus presents himself to the Public for whom he has so long
laboured, seeks no Competition, and only wishes to unite his humble efforts with
the other Professors of Learning in the delightfully situated and healthful Town
Terms, for Boarders, 30 Guineas per Annum, paid half-yearly in
advance; no Entrance Fee required. For Day Scholars, 4 Guineas per year, paid
Quarterly in advance. A complete Electrical Machine adapted for Medical
Purposes, with or without a Battery, to be sold at M. S. Clarke's Schools. 21st
