The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 72

Bruce-Clutha Branch

Bruce-Clutha Branch.


  • President, Mr. John Nicholson;
  • Vice-President, Miss Mclaren;
  • Secretary, Mr. J. A. Robertson;
  • Treasurer, Miss Patterson;
  • Representative on Committee of Management, Mr. C. R. Smith.

The Branch commenced session 1893-94 by preparing a programme of work for the year. This programme consisted of (1) a paper on "The History of the Educational System of Scotland from 1686," by the President; (2) a paper on "Moral Teaching in Schools," by Mr. Dunbar; (3) a paper on "Composition for Advanced Classes," also paper on "Composition for Standard Classes," by Messrs J. Reid and C. R. Smith, respectively; (4) a lecture on "The Physiology of Digestion," by Dr. Fitzgerald (to be given on June 30); (5) a subject to be chosen by the ladies.

The meetings have been bi-monthly, held in turn at Milton, Balclutha, Kaitangata, and Stirling. The attendance has been good, averaging 15 out of a membership of 24.

The programme has proved to be a very interesting one, the several papers provoking a good deal of spirited discussion. During the year the Branch has lost two good working members in Mr. Dunbar and Mr. Botting. On the whole the Session has been a very successful one.
