Fr. Philip lynch, Superior of the Oratory, presenting the prizes, said that this situation would he met by the new buildings now being erected at a cost of £38,000, and for which the money was being found by the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent dc Paul.
The headmistress urged parents to let their daughters stay for the sixthform course in the hope of entering a university or similar institution.
