There was a very large attendance including the pupils and the members of the High School Faculty. Also quite a number of the alumni.
There were games for those who did not dance. The dancing lasted until 10.30 after which refreshments were served, consisting of cake, punch, ice cream, etc. Every one
had a very nice time and we congratulate the Sophomore Class on the manner in which the party was conducted.

There has been “no room to let” in the Grammar Room this year. Every seat has been occupied. Fifty pupils have been enrolled, one moved away and one of our sixteen year old boys left school to go to wrork.
Looking back over the year, it has been a pleasant one. We have worked together in harmony, and have pulled together. While some will not report to High School next year and will engage in other work, our teacher predicts success for us in school activities and scholarship. We look forward with pleasant anticipation.
