A REMINDER that the great adrivantages afforded by the present system of education can be turned mto even greater dangers was given io nearly 450 boys and their parents who on Tuesday attended the prizeeiving day of St. Aloysius' College,
This is North London's only 'atholic voluntary aided grammar :hoof for boys.
The headmaster, Bro. Alfred, giv'ng his report, told the parents that "such facilities as a grammar school education free from the burden of fees, the provision. free of cost, of such valuable equipment as books and apparatus, travel to school at minimum cost, and dinners at prices within the reach of all-all these facilities should be a great spur to your interest in the education of your children.
"Yet sad to say this is not the effect in all cases," "In too many instances the danger inherent in these very advantages has reared itself in the form of complacence. indifference, and a most disappointing decline in the active desire of parents to see that their children take the greatest possible advantage of the education afforded them."
Fr. Bonaventure, C.P., Rector of St. 'Joseph's Retreat, said that he knew the college best from the number of vocations it had produced.
On Monday night the school's under-15's football team beat Hugh Myddleton School 5-1 in the Clague Cup competition for the Islington District senior teams. St. Aloysius' will thus represent Islington in the county championship.
