PRIZE DAY AT ST. PAUL'S COLLEGE
SATISFACTORY YEAR OF PROGRESS: GOOD RESULTS IN STUDIES AND SPORTS
BISHOP OF VICTORIA DISTRIBUTES PRIZES

   There was a very large gathering at St. Paul's College last night when the Annual Prize Distribution took place at the school. The Hon. Dr. S.W.Tso presided over the gathering and congratulated the school on the satisfactory year's work which they had just concluded. He then introduced the Bishop to the gathering and in so doing mentioned the interest which His Lordship took in the education of the Chinese.
   The Headmaster, Rev. A.D.Stewart, read the school report in the course of which he mentioned the success at the recent University examination. He also stated that the college had been successful in inter school volleyball and that the long jump record for Hong Kong schools was lowered by one of the students of the school during the year.
   The Bishop of Victoria in a brief speech recalled the good work done by the school and by the Stewart family in South China.

The Scouts.

   Our troop of Boy Scouts has developed well under the able encouragement of Rev. N.V.Halward. The number of patrols has been increased from two to three, the total number of Scouts now averaging eighteen.
   They have been working hard and it is hoped that quite a few of them will shortly get their first class badges. A number of efficiency badges have been won during the year, including ambulance, athlete's swimming, cook's and cyclist badges. We regret to record that one of the most promising scout, Fung Kai Keung, died during the summer holidays. Another greatly missed from the troop, Chan Sau Chong, has been ill since August. Wong Chi Shing gave valuable help to the Troop but owing to ill health has not been able to do much during the latter months of the year. The Troop has definitely become a "Camping Troop," and nearly all the Scouts have been to camp several times during the year. Six boys made their first class journey a fortnight ago and camped at Shatin on a cold night with only one blanket a piece, which surely speaks well for their spirit. The tone and spirit of the whole Troop are excellent and the present patrol leaders and seconds are proving themselves capable and efficient leaders.
