ST. JOSEPH'S COLLEGE PRIZE GIVING
Mr. N.L.Smith Presents Awards.
YEAR OF STEADY PROGRESS REPORTED
The annual distribution of the awards and prizes of St. Joseph's College took place today in the Great Hall of the College, Mr. N.L.Smith Director of Education, presiding.
The proceedings opened with an excellent concert by the College, Choir and Orchestra, after which the Headmaster read his report for the past year. This was followed by the Prize distribution.
The year 1933 saw the First Hong Kong Troop engaged in various activities. A good number of our scouts obtained the second class badge. Many are now trying hard to pass the different tests for the first class badge. We are glad that many are keen on securing proficiency badges. Three boys have recently passed the test for the cooking badge. One has passed engineer badge and the ambulance badge. Some of our scouts are at present attending the signalling classes under the instruction of the Deep Sea Scouts.
We had two camps in 1933, the first being a Patrol Leaders' Training Camp, and the second a Summer Troop Camp. I should like to thank the Commissioner, the Rev. Waldegrave, and his assistant the Rev. Mr. Halward, for the help they have given the troop.
