BANGOR. "r- COUNTY SCHOOL FOR GIRLS. ¡ j A large gathering assembled at the County School for Girls, at Bangor, on Friday night, on the occasion of the presentation of prizes to the pupils by Miss Cooper, of the Dulwich High School. An enjoyable programme of singing and recitation was rendered by the pupils, after which Miss Mason, the head mis- tress, read her report, paying a compliment to the untiring work of the chairman, Dr. Gray, as a result of which the school buildings were amongst the finest in North Wales and free from debt. They were not as fortunately situated in the matter of annual income, for the school, numbering 89 scholars, had never received an annual grant exceeding £220, the minimum allowed by the scheme for a contem- plated school of 50. This compared unfavour- ably with the Bethesda School, numbering 74 scholars, which received a grant of jE460, and Pwllheli, which, with a roll of 86, received £ 569; whilst the Llangefni School, in Anglesea with 100 pupils, had a grant of nearly £ 1,000, The inadequate grant placed the school at a disadvantage in every respect. During the last year experiments had been made with a view to developing the natural capacity of girls in the district for acquiring languages, a holiday course being arranged in France, which was largely taken advantage of. French con- versation classes had also been established in connection with the school, which were very successful. Three internal scholarships had been awarded to Ceridwen Jones, Margaret Owen, and Doli Roberts. Two outside Tate scholarships were also offered to girls under 12, but of these only one was awarded, to Nellie Evans, from St. Paul's Board School. It was hoped soon to begin classes in cooking and laundry work. Games and drilling were con- sidered as being in no way inferior as training to any other part of the school course, and the hockey team had an unbroken record of sac- cess this season. Many gifts had enriched the school since last prize day, among them being a copy of the Encyclopaedia Britannica.' Miss Cooper afterwards distributed the prizes, and the proceedings were closed with the singing of the National Anthem.
