Intermediate Dept. – Mrs. R. McArthur, Mrs C, Jackson, Miss Brenda Coates, Miss E. Robinson, Mrs Hugh Thompson, Mr E. Khull, Mr C, Sheffield.
This year’s roll has decreased slightly on last year, but this is to be expected with the opening of St. David’s and Frimley Sunday Schools. It is pleasing to report that our numbers continue to increase each Sunday, especially in the Junior and Intermediate Departments.
During the first six months of the year the stafﬁng situation of the Sunday School was really desperate, but we are now pleased to say that the Sunday School is fully staffed. During the year we were happy to welcome as new teachers, Mrs C. Jackson, Mrs Brown, Mrs Atkins, Mrs Mawby, Miss Dunn, Miss McCue, and Mr. Bruce Drummond.
It was with great pleasure that we have to report that when the teaching situation was so desperate the Senior Young Women’s Bible Class came to our rescue, and now hold their Bible Class on Sunday evenings. The following offered their services to the Sunday School, Misses E. Robinson, B. Coates, J. Sheffield, A. Macdonald, E. McKennie, E. Petersen and M. Parkhill.
It is regretted that owing to ill health Mrs M. Owen has had temporarily to give up teaching, but we look forward to having her back with us next year.
The Sunday examinations were again set by members of the staff and the results were most gratifying, several scholars gaining over 90 per cent. We thank Miss E. Pryde for undertaking the marking of the papers.
Mrs. Francis continues to visit us each month to give a Missionary talk, and we all appreciate her most interesting stories.
We wish to place on record our sincere thanks to all good friends in the Church who give us ﬁnancial assistance when required. Especially do we appreciate the action of the Women’s Guild, who supply all the prizes for the end of year prize giving – thank you all for your interest in the Sunday School.
To our Minister, Rev. H. A. Mitchell, and Deaconess, Sister C. Weir, many thanks for your continued interest and encouragement at all times.
