Shaniko School Notes
The report of the last school
month showed that less than 50
of all the pupils attended regularity,
being neither absent nor tardy. This
record is low compared with our at
tendance in October, when 90 of
our pupils were perfect in atten
dance. Some of the recent ab
sences were due to absence from the
town, but most of them were due to
illness. " Perfect attendance record
ed by departments were as follows:
High school, 80; Grammar school,
33 1-3; Primary, 25. Lets do
better next month.
Having been startled by reading
the above parents and guardians of
the boy3 and girls will not feel so
guilty when they learn that the per
centage of attendance wa.t 92 plus.
It is a case of a large number of pu
pils being absent for short periods.
There is, however, some room for
