The following is an abstract of the results of the examination of the rest of the classes, as reported by the Local Committee.
Mr. R. J. Loughnan, the judge of the district, took the second class, and remarks :
“ These pupils were examined by me in the branches of education indicated, (reading, grammar, geography, geometry, arithmetic, vernacular) and exhibited a fair degree of proficiency : almost all are au fait at geometry, and the branch in which all are least proficient is the vernacular."
Mr. Mackintosh, the head master of the school, thus reports on the third class :
“ The boys acquitted themselves well in reading, explanation, geography, and arithmetic. In grammar they were not well grounded, and in Urdu they read with less fluency than they did in English."
The Civil Surgeon superintended the examination of the two sections of the fourth class. No special remarks are made, but from the marks gained by the boys they seem to have passed a good examination. In the vernacular, the first section gained marks averaging from 80 to 100 (that being apparently the highest attainable) : in arithmetic, the same average is preserved, as also in explanation : in reading, they gain from 40 to 80. In the second section the marks in vernacular are from 5 to 80; in arithmetic, from 5 to 100; in explanation, from 25 to 90; in spelling, from 5 to 100.

much Doctor Allan, Captain Don pleased with the result of the examination of
all the classes. “ The boys of the three first acquitted themselves remarkably well in all the branches of their studies, more especially in their translations from English into the Vernacular.
and Babu Girdharee Lall.
“ The boys of the first and second classes were desired to read portions of books which they had never before studied, and the explanations which they gave were very excellent, and highly creditable to their teachers. “ Five of the boys of the first class competed for junior scholarships
“ The conduct of all the teachers during the past year has been most satisfactory. They have given every attention to the students of their respective classes, and have been at considerable pains in improving their pronunciation, which enables the boys in the four first classes to read with great fluency. Hoonuman Dutt, the pundit, who was formerly in the school, absented himself without leave in December last. His name was struck off the establishment, and the present incumbent entertained in his room.
“ On the day of the examination the sum of Company's rupees 61 was collected by the members of the committee for prizes for regular attendance during the ensuing year, to which rupees 21 were afterwards added by two other members of the Local Committee.
“ The library belonging to the school, as well as the furniture, are in excellent order, but the committee intimate that the school house will require considerable repairs during the cold season, and that an estimate of the probable cost will hereafter be furnished, by the agent for the Department of Public Works, for the information of the Council.”
