Report(1953--1
Headmaster's 954)
Your Honour, My Lord Bishop, Gentlemen of the Directorate,
Ladies and Gentleirren :

Once again I extend to you a hearty welcome on the occasion


of our Annual Speech Night.
His Honour, the Lieutenant-Governor and Lady Outerbridge
ha-ve again been so kind as to grace us with their presence this
evenins. That the choice of Sir Leonard as our first Lieutenant-
Governor was a happy one has been proven time and again' and
his zeal and devotion to his many duties have become a source of
pride to his fellow Newfoundlanders. I would like to record our
appreciation now of the outstanding service His Honour and Lady
Outerbridge have rendered to Newfoundland.
May I say, too, how pleased I am that His Lordship the Bishop
and Mrs. Abraham are with us this evening. I realize that His
Lordship has had an extremely busy fall and I greatly appreciate
his interrupting a very full schedule to be with us tonight.

The School Year


Looking back over the school year I feel it is safe to say that
progress has been made and that we have achieved some success.
'lhere
appears to be a healthier reaction to several school activities
and I believe that general conduct and discipline have improved.
The standards achieved up to Grade VI were very good and
the final results in Grades VII and VIII were better than anticinated
earlier in the year.
Only in the top grades does there exist a situation, which is
made plain by the very mediocre results, and which is a source
of constant concern to the Staff. The causes of poor scholarshi'o,
in this part oI the school are many. The progreisive type books
and too much changing of these in earlier years have contributed
to a general rveakening of the academic level required. Some
boys are not suited to the courses we can offer in Newfoundland
schools to d-ate. Some, even at Grade XI, have no idea what they
would like to do in the future, and too many have a purely
materialistic outlook which says plainly-any old job, so long as
there is a big pay envelope. Add to these those parents who appear
to exercise no conti:ol ovel homework or free nights and you have
the main factors that have to be faced constantly.
Those boys who had the wili to work, and were ready to take
advantage of the opportunities offered, may well be proud of their
success. Among this group were several who brought extra-mural

t1
honours to themselves and the co1lege. In Grade XI, Arthur May
won the Governor-General's Bronze Medal and the Electoral
District Scholarship while David Carmichael was awarded the
Canadian Legion Scholarship. In Grade X, William Brown received
the Calvin C. Pratt Scholarship.
Our Science Laboratory is now one of the best equipped in
the country and since September, Mr. Dempster has gone to
considerable trouble to collect aII sorts of abandoned electrical
and mechanical equipment which is being put to practical use by
the boys. I feel that this practical experience of dismantling,
repairing and rebuilding machines serves a very useful purpose-
not only the acquisition of knowledge and skill, but the opportunity
for some boys to find their right niche in the future.
In the Industrial Arts Department, Mr. Humber has recently
received a final shipment of Leathercraft equipment and will soon
begin an experimental class in this art. Any great extension of
thii project wiII require considerable reorganization and possibly
more space than is presently available.

Mr. Hewson has taken on the main burden of reorganizing


and extending our Library facilities, and as soon as certain matters
are finalized, we hope to institute a broader and better reading
programme. I doubt if there is anything needed in schools today
more than a sound comprehensive reading scheme based on
worthwhile literature, and we propose to do our best to create an
interest in, and an appreciation of, better books. The Board is
doing all in its power to help and I feel sure that Mr. Hewson
would be very thankful to receive donations of suitable books or
money, and subscriptions for worthwhile magazines.
The Physical Training progranlme appears to be going well
and a larger number of boys than ever before enjoyed a good
football season.
I'hanks to the generosity of a number of good friends who
responded to my appeal for funds for Gvmnasium equipment, two
shibments were brought in and a third order should soon be on
the way. Unfortunat6ly, our plans to extend the school programme
have been restricted to date, because it was found that the space
we intended to use for storage was going to cost far more than
anticipated to excavate. And it is pointless to bring in more
heavy equipment at the moment since our gymnasium is so situated
that it prevents moving this equipment easily. In fact, it is a time-
consuming job and can only be done at great risk to both boys and
equipment.

C. L. B. and J. T. C.
I am pleased to be able to report that "C" Company is slowly
but surely growing in strength and is well on the way towards
reestablishing a high standard of efficiency. At the same time, it

12
is rvith regret that I note the resignation of Capt. A. Bu-rden,who
was so heiplul in putting the Contpanv back on its 1eet. At the
moment we have no replacemc.nt for l'rim, but I hopc that this
will be remedied in the near future. Meanr,vhilc the N. C. O's
are doing splendid rvork with a minimum of supelvision, since I
find it impossible to attend regularly myself.
Thanks to thc splcndid work of Lieut. J. Pinsent, thc Junior
Training Corps is reacl.ring a high peal< of cfticiencv. Mi. tiill,
who formcrlv was a memlter <tl (lrrind Falls Company, is giving
valuablc assistance. The boys arc kecn and intercsled in the
programme and Corps strcngth is kceprng uit.

Our relativelv light Junior team also had a well contestecl
series with Prince of Wales Colle'ge. Three successive €lames \\rerc
drawn but this was the best wc could do and the championship
went to Prince of Wales College. Our congratulations on their
double success.

]J

The good sportsmanship and improved brand of football shown
by all the teams were outstanding features of the series.

StafJ
At the end of the school year we said good-bye to two members
of the staff-Miss Parsons, who resigned to take a teaching position
in Carbonear and Mr. Toope, who is on leave of absence to continue
his studies at Memorial University. We thank them for their
excellent co-operation and good service and wish them every
success in the future.
Our new members are Miss Halfyard, who has taken Miss
Parsons' place in Grade IV, and Mr. G. GiIl, who is replacing
Mr. Toooe. Additional members of the staff are : Mr. C. J. Grant,
8.A.. B.Paed.. who has returned to Newfoundland after some
years on the mainland and is now Form Master of Grade XI, and
Mrs. E. Goobie, who, at the beginning of October, took over the
rather arduous task of reestablishing music and singing in the
school. I already know that all four are good efficient workers.
I tlust their efforts will be successful and satisfying, and that they
will enjoy their stay with us.

Butldtng

During the summer the east end of the College was rebricked
and other external repairs made. A number of rooms were re-
decorated and all classroom floors reconditioned. At no time has
the internal appearance of the College been better than when we
opened in September. Much credit for this state of affairs must
go to the Secretary, Mr. White, who has spared no effort and given
much time in personal supervision of all these matters.

The Board deserves much credit for all its efforts towards
improvements. The provision of extra teachers wiII help tremen-
dously as time wiII show, and the support received for Laboratory
equipment, Leathercraft and Library will pay dividends in the
future. I know that financially the Board has extended itself to
the limit to give our children what is needed and I am sincerely
grateful for aII that has been done.

Recent Changes

Since opening we have been compelled to take over the Games


Equipment Room and enlarge it to accommodate some of the
foreign language classes.
We have also put into operation a scheme of remedial work.
The number of classes has just about reached its limit at the
moment, and any extension of the plan will require considerable
change of the present time-table structure.

T4
Obituaries
I must at this time record with regret the passing of two
outstanding Old Feildians.
In July came news from England of the death of an oid
Headmaster, Ralph R. Wood. Mosl of you present knew him well
and will remember that his greatest aim was to send out from this
school good Christian gentlemen. In this he was successful; and
th.e proof is in the great regard and respect held lor him by all
who came under his influence.
Within two weeks we heard of the passing of Charles E. Hunt,
Q.C. No words of mine are necessarv to indicate the regard in
which he was held in this community; yet few fully real*ize the
great rvork he did for this Diocese, and stilr ress knowof the rnanv
acts of christian charity performed away from the limetight of
publicity.
Of each, no more fitting epitaph can be used than the Colleqe
motto-"Non moritur cuius fama rrivit."

_ Except for enlarging the field hockey pitch and extending


the retaining wall near Rennie's river the Association's activitiei
have been iargely routine. The grounds have been kept in
excellent condition and are a credit to the Organization. The
Association again sponsored a successful season by the London
Theater Company and an increasing number of peopie have reason
to be thankful for the opportunity to enjoy a "live theater" season.

Home ond Sclrool Associatiott.


The Home and School Association appears to have established
itself firmly in the life of the school. The past year has seen a
higher average attendance than ever before and the present year
indicates that interest is being maintained. I believe both parents
and teachers feei we are getting down to the basic ideas of such
an organization and the further we carry this the better we can
help the children.
However, I know ail the members will agree that we cannot
function to fuII effect untll euet'y parent belongs to the Associ-
ation-and we are far from that yet. If only these parents would
realize the value of teachers being familial with every possible
facet of the child, school life would be easier for all concerned.

F eildian Ladies' Association


The Feildian Ladies' Association has completed another
strenuous year's work. Under Mrs. Steinhauer's leadership the

ID
usual activities have been carried on, culminating in the Annual
Sale in November. Considering that this small group of ladies
works extremely hard with no other wish than to hclp the school
financially, the adult attendance at the Sale was disappointing.

This year the ladies have again supplied desks, cupboards,


l,ab. equipment, money for library bool<s and a new Gestetner
machine which I believe will be one of the most useful items they
have ever given the school.
Few people seern to realize the value to the children of all
these donations. I have a very great admiration for this group
of ladies, not so much because of the financial help as the great
spirit and unselfishness of all their efforts. They deserve a larger
membership to lighten the burCen, and desen'e one hundred per
cent support at all times.

Educatiot'L

During the past few months I have listened with interest to


a number of school reports and I heartily concur with the note
o[ warning ail have containect.
Twenty years ago Newfoundland adopted a progressive-type
system of education, which, if it could have been successful at all,
cbuld only have been so if teachers were given smaller classes and
provided with tremendous amounts of materials to carry out the
icheme. Since then standards have been slowly but surely
dropping. I maintain that, but for the teachers in this island,
things would now be far worse than they are. It was the constant
complaints of teachels about the inadequacies of many text-books
and other matters that caused changes to take place. Often the
nerv texts were no great improvement on the o1d, and compiaints
continued. The text-book situation is still far from satisfactory,
but I honestly believe that, with the appointment of a Director of
curriculum, we have the first real attempt to contlol the situation.
If tire present policy of country-wide curriculum committees of
ex'oerienced teachers is continued and their findings adopted, a
much improved situation will emerge.
I would suggest to the Department of Education that another
primary step is the institution of a real, and live, liaison between
itself, the University and the school principals.
The other point of public interest at present is the question
of Regional High Schools. I can well appreciate and thoroughly
agree with the Government's original idea of these schools for
rural areas, but I cannot see the object of such schools in St. John's
or any large centre. We already have such schools, except for
the physical separation of the age groups, which is an idea I
heartily endorse.
If we are to advance education in Newfoundland by introducing

16
a separateHigh School System, radical and costly changes must
be made. If we are to make any real progress with this idea such
a schoolmust have its "core" subiects and classical, technical and
businessunits. Students entering such a school must be divided
by pre-testing into not less than three groups, and standardized
entrance examinations must be invoked.
Unless we are prepared to institute some scheme such as I
have mentioned we do not advance education one single step by
building High Schools.
The other factor, which must not be forgotten, and which I
referred to last Speech Night, is the elementary school situation.
Will the provision of a High School make room for all the children
wishing to enter the elementary school ? Some people claim that
by removing the top grades to a new High School, room will be
Ieft to house these beginners. I cannot agree, since I believe there
are more trying to get in at the bottom than will be going out at
the top. Dr. M. E. LaZerte, Director of the Canadian School
Trustees'Researcl-iProiect investigating federal aid for education,
gives enrolment figures by grades (1951--1952) for all Canadian
provinces. I have chosen what appears to be the most favourable
and dependable table for Newfoundland in which Grade II is
represented as 100 and the other grades are percentages of this.
In Newfoundland for every 100 children in Grade II, forty per cent
reach Grade IX, thirty per cent Grade X and twenty-one per cent
Grade XI. Let us remove Grades X and XI from that school, that
is, thirty plus twenty-one, or fifty-one children. Assuming Grade I
will contain approximately the same number of children as Grade II,
we now find we have two hundred children to replace fifty-one.
Where then is the space for them ?

On this basis we stiil have to face the problem of building


more elementary schools and the question really comes down t6
this : Which is the more urgent problem, these elementary schools
or a High School ?
Undoubtedly a lot of thought and consideration must be
given to our present school problems-you, the parents, must know
and understand the true situation and the information ought to be
forthcoming.
Above all, the elementary school problem must not be lost
sight of in all this talk of High schools. The situation murst be
resolved not by lookilg ONLY at the top or ONLY at the borrom,
but by keeping BOTH in clear view at all stages and end.eavouring
to reach a sound conclusion.
IVIy since_rethanks lo tle Very Reverend Dean Rayson, Canon
Howitt and Reverend D. Noel for their services during the year:
I am sorry that the Dean wiII soon be leaving us and we wish" him
God-speedand every successin his new field of work. We welcome
the Reverend S. J. Davies, who has so willingly and successfully

I7
taken up the work previously done by Mr. Noel. I judge he
already feels quite at home with us, and that, of course, is as it
should be.
In closing I would like to express my thanks to the many
donors of Scholarships and Prizes, and to the many others who
have contributed in any way to the welfare of the school.
My personal thanks to the entire Staff of the College for their
continued support and co-operation through a rather difficult
period, and a personal word of appreciation to the boys for their
loyalty and co-operation throughout the year.
May I extend to one and all my very best wishes for a Merry
Christmas and a Happy New Year.
