That meeting was a failure, only the teacher and another putting in an attendance. Mr M'Mi'es made a second attempt, and although the night was cold and wet he suc ceeded in getting half a dozen to gether, who among themselves decided to give the little folic a days' outing in the Recreation ground, and also to invite the pupils attend ing the Convent school to take part...
