During the interval the superintendent (Mr Beaumont) said he wished to thank the parents who send their children to the school, and all they would do their part in assisting the Sunday school teachers in their work, which was done in the spirit of love.
They were not to send their children simply to oblige them, but because they were willing to cooperate with them in their religious training.
The Rev Maxey propose a vote of thanks to Mrs Beaumont, the children, who had done their part so well, to the lady teachers who assisted in making arrangements for that evening.
Through the kindness of friends and in response to the children, tea was provided without expense. The total proceeds were £4 9s 6d. which was devoted to the “deficiency fund.”
