Prospectus for 1894.
|The object of the Technical Classes Association is to organise a scheme of evening classes which will enable youths engaged during the day to continue their education, and in due time, if possible, to take advantage of the higher instruction provided by the University of Otago. In making its arrangements, the Committee has kept in view the necessity of providing instruction of a practical kind, such as will be likely to make those who join the classes more intelligent and more efficient workmen.
|Fees for each quarter are payable in advance, but arrangements can be made where required for extending the time of payment. On enrolment and payment of fees each student will receive a card of admission, which he may be required to show while attending his classes.
|Any student who can satisfy the Committee that he is unable to pay the fees, will be allowed to attend classes free of charge, or at a reduced fee, as the Committee shall decide.
|Students are required to provide themselves with any test-books, &c., which the teachers may recommend for their use.
|Students in the Manual Classes must provide themselves with all hand-tools: such as saws, planes, chisels, hammer, Oil-stands, compasses, &c., required by the Instructor. The Committee hope to arrange for the use of steam power, benches, metal and wood lathes, &c., so that students will have the advantage of learning the use of machines.
|The Classes for Languages, Arithmetic, Mathematics, Book keeping, and Physics will be held in the Normal School, the Technical and Manual Classes in the Dunedin Technical School in Great King street.
The Session will commence on Monday, April 2nd, the first quarter closing on Friday, June 22nd. The second quarter will commence on Monday, July 9th, and the Session, except for the Botany Class, will close on Friday, September 28th.
The Spring Session of the Botany Class will commence about Monday, October 2nd, closing about Friday, December 14th. The Autumn Session will commence about February 5th, 1895.
|Students will be enrolled at the Normal School on Thursday and Friday, 29th and 80th March, from 7 to 9 p.m.
