NATIONAL SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT.— On Tuesday evening last, an entertainment was given in the above school by the scholars, under the guidance of the school mistress, Miss Moore. The entertainment consisted of two parts, the first part comprising recitations, dialogues and songs by the children, who performed admirably. The second part, undertaken by 18 of the children, was a sketch, in character, entitled "The Queen of the Fairies." This was most effectively sustained, Miss Wheeldon as "Queen," Master Butler as "Messenger," and Miss Blake as "Beauty," taking their parts exceedingly well. The whole entertainment was a decided success, reflecting great credit on the mistress. There was a good attendance presided over by the Rev. W. Linton. The following was the programme:—
"Song of Welcome"
Recitation— "The Boy."— S. Hill.
