Old School Report

I recently found these in some old roll books in school, some dating back to the 1870’s. I’m not sure, but I’m presuming that they are old-style school reports. They appear to be for pupils in 5th and 6th class. Again, I’m not sure when exactly they were used. However, it’s safe to say that it was quite some time ago as one of the curriculum subjects is “Needlework”, and presumably that would only have been for girls. The English and Gaeilge versions were back to back, but I’ve just scanned them into two separate files. They can be used as primary sources when looking at school in the past.

These reports were used ion the late 1960’s and into the seventies. Some schools used them into the 80’s. I recently came across an old corporal punishment book dating back to 1912.
