Daily Examiner, January 4, 1888.
["Thistle and Shamrock" School district, located in Lot 67 and Lot 27.]
The semi-annual examination of the "Thistle and Shamrock" school, No. 106, took place on the 29th ult., in the presence of the trustees, a number of the pupils' parents, and other visitors. Of the sixty-seven pupils enrolled, forty-three were present that day. The subjects in which the pupils were examined, were Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, English, Map-Drawing and Geography, and the way in which they answered the many and difficult questions put them showed a marked improvement in every subject, since the last examination, and reflected much credit upon themselves and their amiable teacher Mr. James H. Monaghan, who, although yet young in the profession, has proved himself an excellent instructor.
