This year for the first time we had examinations in Latin & Greek Press, Latin Hexameters & Greek Iambic. This is an innovation of Scott’s. Nor is the rest of the school free from them. They began on the 9th of April, the regular Examinations beginning on the 21st.

+ This year for the first time a prize was given for Mathematics called the “Master’s Prize.” Mathematical prizes are also given in each form, which is a new plan of Scott’s.
