An election of new scholars was held on Thursday, June 27. There were two vacancies from boys leaving, and a third was made by the removal from the books of the name of a boy who was absent from the examination without leave or notice, in violation of the Rules; there was also the prospect of a fourth vacancy. There were five candidates, all of whom were from our own neighbourhood, and had been under instruction in our National Schools. Of these the following were declared elected :— John Jackson, Tom Wintour, Grantley Dufty, and (in case of the fourth vacancy) Hubert Morse. The School is now full. The Trustees resolve that the scholars shall be thoroughly examined every half-year—a special day being set apart for that purpose.

The Flower Show is fixed, all well, for Saturday, August 3. Rule V. has been carried out, the Committee having resolved, at their last meeting, that no tickets should be sold to certain parties who exhibited and won the first prize, for some flowers which had been in their possession less than the required time.
