Winners of Pictures Donated by Lady M.P.
Below is the list of those winning pictures donated by Miss A. C. Macphail, to the school in each of the school fairs in both North and South Grey which won the greatest number of points in proportion to the number of children on the roll. By taking the average points won per pupils in the school, it has given the school with a very few children an even chance with the section having a large enrolment. The points given included only awards made on exhibits and parade. Winnings in sport events were not considered as the management of the school fairs has neither time to record the events or finances to pay the winners. The winners in each fair were : Artemesia. Sprlnghill S. S. No. 3; Bentick, Arberdeen, S. S. No. 10; Collingwood, Sandhill, S. S. No. 14; Derby, Egremont, B. S. No. 9; Euphrasia, 3rd line, S. S. No. 21; Glenelg, St. Peters, S. S. No. 5; Holland, S. S. IS'o. 4; Keppel (Wolsey School Fair District); Kembel, S. S. No. 10: Keppel (Shallow Lake School Fair Dist) Shallow Lake S. S. No. 2; Markdale, Markdale School room 3; Normanby, S. S. No. 5'; Osprey, Maxwell, S. S. No. 9; Proton, Ventry. S. S No. 5; South Proton, Red School; S. S. No 5, Egremont; Sarawak, E. Linton. S. S. No. 2; Sullivan, S. S. No. 9; St. Vincent, Griersville, S. S. No. 14; Sydenham S. S. No. 16. The pictures were won in some cases by schools having as few as 7 pupils on the roll. This proved true in Collingwood where S. S. No. 14 won the prize. Other schools winning had as high as thirty pupils on the roll. This prize should prove an incentive to all boys and girls, and teachers to strive for greater number of wins in the school fair. Let every child do his or her utmost under the supervision and guidance of their teachers and parents so that the schools in which they attend may be able to boast of the picture next autumn if they are again presented by Miss MacPhail.
