Orchestra. ‘At the end of the Summer Term we collaborated with Form V D. in their presentation of scenes from “The Merchant of Venice” by playing the Oriental and Doge’s Marches. R. Lowe made his “positively last appearance” and sang “Tell me where if fancy bred”. … Sturmey and Skipton of IV B. and Taylor and White of the first year have been particularly welcome newcomers, and are already proving useful. This is all to the good for we have lately had to say good-bye, with very real regret, to Seymour, who was very valuable as an efficient leading 2nd violin. We nearly lost Lowe, and even now we are not sure that H.M. Navy will not steal him away.’

Literary & Debating Society. ‘The most popular meeting of term, possibly the most popular in the Society’s history, took place on November 15th, when a “Grousers’ Night” was held. Judging by the attendance, members and others were far from satisfied with the School and its rules. Moyes complained of the lack of interest taken in certain sections of the School; O’Leary lamented the lack of respect for tradition and authority in the school; Hébert demanded a complete revision of school rules, while Mr Evans deplored the absence of manners among boys of the school. Read, as usual, attacked all and sundry; Jones spoke on behalf of the prefects, for whom Mitchell saw no use; Hicks called for more intensive training of school teams, while Mr Walker complained of wasted time. Stainer and Lowe attacked the present prefectorial system, and Bennett asked for a graded system of conduct marks. The Headmaster replied, promising to give attention to any wrongs that required setting right.’
