SCHOOL EXAMINATION AND GRAND CONCERT

A very successful examination and Grand Concert was held in the Village Green school on Christmas Eve. The performance was remarkable considering the age of the actors. In the examination, they all showed that their time, during the term, had not been spent idly. They also showed remarkable brightness and talent in the dialogues. Much credit is due to the young and efficient teacher, Miss Emma Kenny. [Miss Emma Kenny, of Byrne's Road, who graduated in June 1908.] If she succeeds as well in all her undertakings, her future promises to be bright. The school was crowded by the parents and friends of the pupils. The concert began immediately after the examination.
