In the first scheme drawn up for instruction in this subject the Board Inspectors were held responsible. for the inspection of needlework, and they were empowered to ask for the assistance of ladies on the management of the various schools, and, where this was impracticable or inexpedient, to call in other efficient assistance.

On the 7th May, 1873, the School Management Committee reported that, after some experience, they were of opinion that to give real efficiency to the teaching of needlework it was necessary that there should be a special officer whose sole duty it should be to examine this branch of work. On the 30th July, 1873, Mrs. Floyer was appointed Examiner of Needlework. At the present time two Examiners of Needlework are engaged by the Board.

In 1878 the simultaneous class teaching of needlework, with the aid of large demonstration frames, was introduced, and is now in use in all the schools of the Board. Cutting-out is also taught to a class simultaneously on the chequered blackboard. In the lower classes of infant schools the use of needle, cotton, and thimble is taught by needlework and knitting drill.
