It will also he the constant aim of the Principal to make the discipline, the studies, and all the in’ ternal arrangements of the School conform to Chris tian principles, and serve to implant in the hearts of her pupils a deep love for sacred things, and a lien rty devotion to God the Saviour. Those in particular who become members of her family will excite the same solicitude, and receive the same zealous care in this respect as her own children ; and they will thus he expected to govern j their least actions by the rules of Christian duty — I here will not, however, he in this system of edu- I cation any attempt to inculcate partial and sectari an opinions.
