THE HOAD TO KNOWLEDGE

Many parents and friends attended the annual speech daj of the Stritlicrno Près bj terian Girte' Grammar School, at the Glenferrie Town Hill last night An at trat ti», e progtamme was git cn bj the

The repoit of the principals (tho Misses B S a»id J A Thomson) said that behind ill the life ind pla) of the school hj the most impoitant thing-the school spint ind in the lcai just ended tint spirit Ind ?how n itself at Stnthcine it its best In c« oi j phase ot school life thcie hid been i growing hannon«, i strongci dcsne on the pirt ot c«cijbod« to put the school dist Hie icpoil continued -

Next ».car we are opening up a ne«v side of school life by giving girls an opportunity of a course in domestic science All will acknowledge that this is a jerj important side of a girls education, but one which we ha\e not been able to work in hitherto bcciuse of difhcultj in equipment Now, how c*. or, the difhcultj has been met bj the establishment of central classes, where gills from surrounding schools may bo taught cookeiy and home making, or maj take the full com se of intermediate or len« mg domestic science îlrs A'assill Cox, who holds first class diploma N S T.C.

One of the pressing needs of the school is H room to tie u«ed as a library. There arc already about "?00 books in the circulât mg librarj, w hich finds a home in the sixth classioom but there is no definite place tint is central and quiet and alwajs avail able for using the nianj Mluablo reference books tint the school possesses, miny of them presentations in recent yeais So much his been done alrcadv for Stratherne that wc feel that it is fitting that the school itself should, in this case make an effort to raise the funds necessary to pro vide a libran The prefects already have under consideration a snnll baturdav after noon fete to bo held towards the end of tbo

first term

In sport wc have to record the most successful j^ir in thelnstoij of Stiathcrne In both tennis and bisket ball the teams vseic unbeiten, and m both sports won the B section cupB and quill Red for the V section A\c feel that this outward success is evidence of something finer, of the spirit that places the team and there fore the school, before the individual In Red Cinss work wc have been particular)} active this jeir, the class subscriptions mil spccnl collections have been well BUp ported, and interest his been stimulated bv lunch hour talks on xanous aspects of social woik The preparation of a port folio dcsciiptive of Austnhm life and industrie*!, to bo sent to i junior Red Cross circle in Camdi created much, interest The work wis of a vcrj high stindard, and Stratherne won the first prize in the ovciscis portfolio competition oiganmed bv the Victomn Red Cross Societj We aw nt with interest a return portfolio from the Canadnn circle lhe competition be tween the houses has been most keen The basis of competition is one of work, fi] ort, and general usefulness to the school 1 he Seckamp challenge cup his hcen won bj Patterton House, with 145 points, run norup, Dare House with 14Î points, while Davidson House gained 118 points.
