My Dear Girls,-
A letter seems somewhat unnecessary to those of you
whom I meet day by day, but to those who have left our walls
it will have more meaning, and in the years to come, when you
look back through these pages from your School days, it will
remind you of' thoughts and plans and hopes then happily
First, let me say how glad I am to see the Magazine, which
diedout suddenly in the first year of the war, rising from its
ashes after six years. For the Chronicle alone it is worth
keeping up, and the former numbers set a standard which I
hope will be maintained and raised by every new issue.
It is not possible to trace the course of the six years
behind us, years which have changed the map of Europe, and
the fate of nations, as well as of so many individual lives.
Those of you who have been at School during all those years
will realize later what a great gulf is set between then 'and
now, and how the time machine has whirled us round the dial
of history till we have to struggle for balance and reckoning.
Of the great momentous changes I must not write, but some
otherscome to mind as I think over the story of our own
School. For one, we have changed our name, and in some
measure our constitution, since we were affiliated to St. John's
College as a Diocesan School. The new name is still hard for
the older generation to remember, but it links us up with the
history of this Western Province, long before John West, even,
came to preach the Gospel to white and red men at the invita-
tion of the Great Company. As the name of the Diocese, too, it
brings us into closer touch with our branch of the Church, and
with our honoured President, the Archbishop, whose interest
in and support of the College have been so unwavering.
The frontispiece reminds us of another change brought
about by the years. Mr. Struthers, who succeeded Col. Rowley
as Hon. Secretary-Treasurer of the School, found himself com-
pelled, after many years of devotion to our interests, to resign
office, not long before the subsequent affiliation with St. J ohn's.
Though his health has not allowed many visits to the College
