Domestic Intelligence. PUBLIC MEETING OF THE AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 22 January 1835
wonmeotic Entelligenrc. PUBLIC MEETING OF THE AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY. IT appears that a few months ago a few philan thropic persons in Sydney formed themselves into a Society for the education of the children of the lower classes in Sydney and throughout the colony, on the plan of the British and Foreign School Society; one of the well-known and fun damental rules and principles of which is, that the Bible, without note or comment, shall be read daily in the schools of the Society, but that no catechisms shall be used. A Provisional Com mittee was accordingly formed on the 7th of August last, and the Resolutions of that commit tee, recognising the system of the British and Foreign School Society as the one to be adopted in the proposed colonial society, were published at the time in the newspapers of the colony. It was therefore preposterous for any person who happenedto reside in the colony in August last to plead ignorance in regard either to the nature or to the objects of the...
