Annual Report of the Tuapeka Branch
Annual Report of the Tuapeka Branch.
In submitting this our Annual Report for the year ending May, 1885, I have but little of interest to communicate.
Owing to the many changes which have taken place in this district during the year, we are not able to show a large financial membership. Last year I returned eleven members, but this year I can return only ten, as three or four have left.page 7
We have held seven meetings during the year just ended, at which, in addition to interesting conversations on matters pertaining to our profession, we had able papers on "The Present Position," by Mr. Macandrew; and "Order and Attention." by Mr. Allnutt.
We also had a discussion on the massing of Pupil-teachers for purposes of instruction, and resolved "that while recognising the utility of massing Pupil-teachers for instruction, it is not at all practicable in country districts such as this."
Robert Neill, Secretary.
