13 Albany Place, St. George's Road.
The above institution provides mainly
for a thorough Engl sh and Commercial
Education, into which the Classical ele-
ment may or may not enter, as the parents
or guardians of pupils may think tit.
The course of instruction in the Latin
language embraces a period of two, or at
most three sessions, one hour per day, and
is conducted so as carefully to subserve
the English and Cjmmeicial course.
Thus, pupils not intending to follow any
of the learned professions may draw all
the advantages to be gained from a study
of the language, as aiding the acquisition
of a knowledge of Natural Science in the
higher branches of an English education,
and enabling the Commercial pupil all the
more easily and surely to master the Mo-
dern Languages.
Mr. J. Macpherson, Principal of the
Institution, is responsible to parents and
guardians for the educational manage-
ment, and all other working arrangements
towards carrying out effectively the course
of instruction selected for pupils.
