Congratulations to the Head-mistresses of Felixstowe College and Queenswitod Girls’ Public School, Hatfield, for allowing pupils to
take thriving lessons. Miss Enid Es:;ame„1.P., Head-mistress of Qtteenswood. states that she. has been shocked by the bad-driving eases she deals with in Court, adding that ” Driving and cooking are essential skills for the young woman ttf today.” Nine out of sixteen of her girls passed their driving test recently, and at Felixstowe College all 14 of the girls who took the test passed. This represents 75 per cent. success, .compared to the National average of 40 per emit., so the girls have justified their Head-mistresses’ faith in them. The tests eoincided with school examinations and the pupils who failed are expected to pass next time when they have leas. on their minds.
The girls were all 17 or 18 years of age and were taught by the British School of Motoring, inn about 15 lessons each in dualteom rot ears. May other Head-mistresses follow these praiseworthy examples of modern thinking and application.–W. B.
