From the Nelson Examiner dated 24 January 1865, Pg 2 - THE TOWN SCHOOLS. On Friday last the prizes were given to the several successful scholars in our Town Schools. His Honour the Superintendent presided, and there were also present, Captain D. Rough, and Messrs. J. C. Richmond and R. Burn, members of the committee. The Superintendent opened the proceedings by addressing the children upon the importance and advantage of education, and he illustrated his remarks as to the necessity of valuing their prizes by stating how the soldier valued the Victorian Cross, which, as a piece of metal, was worth but little, but, as the cross presented by his Queen in recognition of his good conduct, was invaluable. He regretted that no report upon the general efficiency of the schools had been presented by the examiners, and censured the parents of the children and the public generally for their apparent want of interest in so important a subject. Captain Rough addressed the children, commenting upon the greatly improved appearance and demeanour of the scholars as compared with former years, and commended the teachers principally for that result. He regretted, however, the want of more religious and moral teaching, and asked of what avail was all else if religion and morality were neglected? He also regretted the absence of the Head-Master, Mr. Smith, who, unfortunately, was unable to be present. Mr. R. Burn addressed the children, and gave, as he had done for several proceeding years, a prize for arithmetic. He regretted, however, that it had been so poorly earned as compared with former years, and hoped for improvement. He also followed in the footsteps of the other speakers in censuring the apathy of parents and the public with regard to so important a question as education. The prizes were then delivered as follows:- Included under the listing GIRLS. – Second Division, Fourth Class, was Harriet Harman.
