The general annual examination of the school occupied
the Local Committee from the 15th General Annual
to the 20th September, and the followExamination.
ing are the remarks by the examiners : First class, second section, examined by Mr. Metcalfe, who reports :
“ The second section of this class was examined in all the books forming their course of study. They read with distinctness, due attention to punctuation, and with very satisfactory comprehension of the meaning,
" The result of their examination in syntax and arithmetic was also good. I was less satisfied on the whole with their geography, from which qualified degree of praise, however, I must except Kisto Chunder Chuckerbutty and Poorno Chunder Burdhun, who did very well. The class was generally very successful with their Euclid, which, however, was confined to the first book. I recommend that prizes should be awarded to Kisto Chunder Chuckerbutty, Poorno Chunder Burdhun and Goluck Chunder Ghoo, for general proficiency, and Goureepersaud Doss for remarkably good attendance.
“ The examiner in Bengali, Babu Chunder Sekur Sein, menticns with particular approval Mohes Chunder Dey, Goluck Chunder Ghoo, Ram Mohun Chuckerbutty and Poorno Chunder Burdhun, to whom he awards prizes. He speaks well of the progress of the class generally, and highly of the pundit's zeal in instructing them.”
Third class, first section, examiner Mr. Sandys:
" The progress of the class is satisfactory. The first prize I award to Mahendro Coomar Dhur, the second to Chundee Churn Sen, the third to Doorgah Doyal Doss, for the fourth Coylass Chunder Dutt, Gobind Chunder Mookerjee and Birjonath Goopto are equal, but the latter having been most regular in his attendance is, I think, most worthy of the prize, and to him therefore I award it.”
Third class, second section, examiner Mr. Metcalfe : “ This section of the third class read with distinctness and replied with accuracy to the questions put to them regarding the meaning of what they were reading. The result of the examination in grammar, etymology and geography was also, on the whole, very satisfactory. I would indicate the three first boys, Ramcoomar Doss, Jonabally and Dennonath Sen, as particularly deserving of approval, and would award them prizes for general proficiency. Annodab Persaud Dey has been named to me by the master of the class as meriting a reward, for his docility, goodness of temper, and attention to his studies. These are certainly qualities which should not pass unnoticed, and as I am pleased generally with the result of his examination, I would beg to recommend that the fourth prize should be awarded to him. I notice that the attendance of this section has been good with one exception, that of Kally Coomar Mookerjee. This exception was occasioned by his not returning to school on the pretext of sickness, and the marriage of his brother, at the conclusion of the last vacation. He has been warned by me that should this happen again I shall feel it my duty to recommend to the local committee that serious notice be taken of his conduct.
“The examiner in Bengali speaks highly of the general proficiency of the class, and of the creditable attention by the school pundit to his duties."
Fourth class, examiner Mr. Metcalfe :
First Section." This section of the fourth class has made very satisfactory progress. The boys forming it have taken up the No. II. Prose Reader, Grammar and Geography within the last two years, and have, under their present master, who takes great interest in his class, advanced very rapidly. Okhoy Coomar Sein and Narain Chunder Doss are entitled to prizes for general improvement. R. Smith to the same for satisfactory progress, for general good conduct, and punctual attendance. Futtick Chunder Sein distinguished himself in geography, and on that ground is entitled to a prize.
Second Section.—“My remarks, with reference to the first section, are applicable to this, as regards study and satisfactory improvement. Nobokisto Sein, Susseebeesun Bose and Heera Lall Sing have claim to prizes for general proficiency. Narain Chunder Sein's regular attendance has been remarkable, and so good an example shown to his school masters should not pass unrewarded. Not having missed a single spare day of the sessions, I beg to recommend that a prize should be awarded him.
Third Section.—“ Remarks as to continued improvement as above. Koylas Chunder Dutt, Chunder Kanth Roy, and Aunundo Behary Sein, have claims to prizes, on the score of marked proficiency, and Mohendro Chunder Doss on more of steady conduct and regular attendance.
Fourth Section.—“ These boys are at present in the mere rudiments of their education, but have progressed well with reference to the time they have been learning. The first child, for they are all mere children, Kally Coomar Sein, is a remarkably promising boy, of whom I augur much hereafter. I recommend a prize being awarded to him, and the same to Ameeruddeen for particularly regular attendance, a point on which too great a stress can scarcely be laid.
Bengali. -" The examiner in Bengali, Babu Chunder Sekur Sein, member of the local committee, recommends the prizes being granted to the following boys:
“ Section 1, R. Smith.
“ The examiner speaks highly of the general proficiency of the class in the Bengali language, and of the creditable attention shown by the school pundit to his duties."
The following remarks on subjects connected with the school were submitted by the Local Committee:
“ No material changes have occurred in the affairs or management of the school during the year under report.
“ The Local Committee remark with regret, that the suggestions conveyed in paragraph 10th of their report for the year ending
with the 30th September 1850, relative to the re-appointment of a second master and re-formation of a second class, have not been honoured by the Council's attention. The reasons by which they were induced to represent the advisability of that measure have received increased force of late, by the
admission of seventeen boys in excess of the number on the school roll at the commencement of the scholastic year. The number of boys in the four sections of the fourth class is very considerable. The same is the case with the third class, and the necessity for a second class is daily becoming more obvious.
" The following are the donations for prizes made to the school by the individuals whose names are annexed :
Savage's Poetical Works, ...
Nobin Chunder Bonerjea. " A ghaut has also been built by public subscription to secure the younger boys from the danger arising from the deep and slippery banks of the tank near which the school stands. This was chiefly done at the suggestion of the master of the fourth class, wh felt naturally and properly, anxious for the safety of his younger charges.
“ The state of the library is satisfactory, and has been freely resorted to by those students who are privileged to have access to it. "The school building is in good and thorough repair.
* The Local Committee mention their continued satisfaction with the state of the school generally and in detail, and observe that they attribute its success mainly to the exertions and ability of Mr. Leicester, and to the assistance he has derived in the performance of his very responsible duty from the subordinate masters, Babu Omurto Laul Gopto and Babu Junmeejoy Doss, of whom also the committee entertain a justly favourable opinion."
