We have received the Examiner's (T. G. Rooper, Esq., H.M.I.) Report on the examination in Practical Teaching, and in the History, Theory and Methods of Teaching, of the students who left at Christmas, 1898 He says: "I send the results of my examinations herewith. I am very much pleased with all the work, both practical and theoretical. The answers showed much interest in the science of teaching, and many of them were interesting and suggestive. I am sure the students who are leaving enter upon their new occupations thoroughly well fitted for them."
