23 December (1880) Forget PISAS and SATS!

  • 23 1880 (Thurs.) D M Palmer Headmaster:

I have had the honour of examining the scholars of the Grammar School, Cardigan, in the Greek and Latin languages, in French, and Scripture History, and it affords me very great pleasure to be able to send in the following report:

The work done by the senior classes in the Aenid of Virgil, in Cicero’s De Senectute, and in Caesar’s Gallic Wars, respectively, as well as in the Anabasis of Xenophon, was highly satisfactory.

The various extracts from the originals were, as a rule, very faithfully rendered in English, though some excelled the others in the elegancy and correctness of their composition.

I was also very much pleased with the accuracy of many of the papers in French Grammar. The translation of the extracts from Charles XII, was, on the whole, very correctly done.

The good old days before PISAS and SATS!
