SCHOOL MANAGEMENT.

No Student is permitted to answer more than one question in any Section, except in Section I. and in that headed "Infants."

All who come from, or are going to take Infant Schools, are advised to answer as many of the questions in the Section headed 'Infants" as they can. But only FIVE questions may be answered in the entire paper, the whole of Section I. being reckoned as ONE question only.

All who answer a sufficient number of questions in the "Infants" Section satisfactorily, and who afterwards pass a satisfactory probation in Infant Schools, will have a special stamp added to their Certificates when issued. The same directions were repeated in the Geography paper, which also contained an "Infants Section," (see p. 68). Acting Teachers are advised to select those questions which appeal most directly to their actual experience: only FIVE questions may be answered in the whole paper.
