Symonds (ihead master) in his report at the recent Glossop High School speech night, "it is apparent that the spirit of unrest and uncertainty has disturbed their emotional life and lias made study more difficult. With some, however, a new awareness of their privileges, obligations and res ponsibilities has been awakened, and -.with it a wholesome desire to prepare themselves adequately to make good the terrible loss which always accom panies war. "Within and without our schools a changed attitude towards education and its future place in our nation is revealed in all sorts of different ways.
