School Inspector’s Report

HELENSBURGH NEWS 24 SEPTEMBER 1885

SHANDON

SHANDON SCHOOL

The following is a copy of H M Inspector’s report of this school:-

“The present teacher has been in charge only since January, but has already made a marked impression. The school is taught with great firmness, vigour and quietness.

The pupils are uncommonly tidy. The tone is very earnest and healthy, but wanting somewhat in geniality. The results, which included the second standard, were very good indeed.

The reading might be more fluent, but was very distinct. Intelligence should receive increased care, and simultaneous answering be sparingly used.

The singing was uncommonly good and expressive, and was done in two parts, very rare with pupils so young. Industrial work was very creditable.”

Dear blog readers

A future goal of mine is to locate the records for this school. I haven’t yet found which archive they are lodged with.
