DIOCESAN BOYS' SCHOOL
Prizes Presented By Lady Caldecott
GUARD OF HONOUR BY SCOUT TROOP

   The Speech Day and Prize giving of the Diocesan Boys' School, which took place yesterday, was attended by some hundreds of parents and friends of the pupils.
His Excellency the Governor and Lady Caldecott received a tumultuous welcome on their arrival in the Hall. Lady Caldecott, who presented the prizes, was the recipient of a handsome bouquet from Master A.S.Bertram.
   Sir Andrew, with his usual happy knack of suiting his address to his audience, kept the boys delighted through the course of a witty speech in which, however, he did not fail to stress the importance of the school career.
   Members of the 6th Kowloon Scout Troop formed a Guard of Honour for His Excellency and Lady Caldecott as they entered the main door.
   The ceremony in the main hall of the school commenced at 5.15 p.m. with the singing of the hymn "Lord of health, thou life within me," after which the entire assembly remained standing while prayers were offered by the Rev. H.W.Baines.
