A con.-tant and uniform attendance
of the scholars is very essential to the
success '-f our school.-. Indeed, next
to a fitting school room and a proper
teacher, it is essential to the be t re
sults. In every point ( f view, if the
scholars f. r whom provision is made,
arc present to avail themselves of their
advantages irregularly, the most jcr
feet system, the most devetcd teachers,
and the most degant apart nu nts will
di-cover no commensurate ends. When
a scholar is a! sent for a day he gets be
hind his clas-, and it is verv difficult
for him to catch up again. He not
only loses by this mean.-', but becomes
a burden to the oilier. He interfere
with their progress and causes the whole
diss to sudor by his absence. In addi
tion t falling behind his class, he comes
to regtud the school and it privileges
as of slight impel tanee, and neglects
them. As a result, Lc doe. not make
that improvement who'i present in
school that ho i.-thenvi-e v.. add.
Ry being absent and irregular in at
tendance, he acquire habit which
will be very lib .by to have their effect
on his after life. The boy or gi?l who
is faithful to the requirements and du
ties of the school, will, vciy likely, be
faithful to the requirements and duties
of after life, l'unctualiiy a school
will beget punctuality in the duties of
business life. The importance of this
te.atter shoo'd ind.'.ce parent to co-operate
with teachers in reducing a far
as pos.-ilile, ab.-e::tevini and tardiness;
they should not allow their scholars
to be absent wnhout a good and .ufh
elent reason therefor: such a reason as
would justiiy them in being absent
from their bu-i:u -s. K.
