CHAIRMAN'S  ADDRESS
To the Board of School Trustees.
Gentlemen:
In submitting my report for the year 1910, I am sure you will
agree with me when I state that greater advancement has been made in the
school life of the City during the year now closed than in any previous year
since the incorporation of Vancouver in 1 886, just twenty-four years ago.
To give some little idea of the marvellous growth of our school system
during the last twenty years I have only to draw your attention to the report
of Mr. J. J. Banfield, who was Chairman of the Board in 1 903.
Mr. Banfield, in his report, says:
'About thirty years ago the Hastings Mill Co., then in active operation with a staff of employees, forming the nucleus of the old Town of
Granville, entered into negotiations with the Provincial Government and
built the first schoolhouse, the Government providing the teacher. At this
time 'there were some fifteen pupils within the limits of the district. The
first trustees were Mr. R. H. Alexander and Mr. Jonathan Miller. The
first teacher was Miss Julia Sweeney.
This school continued for a period of thirteen years, being conducted
in the original building erected near the mill. On November 4th, 1886,
the Government officially recognized the change from Granville to Vancouver School District, and defined the boundaries of the school district to
be as on the official map of the City of Vancouver.
After the advent of the Canadian Pacific Railroad development was
rapid, and the following spring a new school of four rooms was built and
occupied on Cordova Street East. The following schools were erected
within the period of 1887 and 1893: Old Burrard Street School, old
Central School, Mt. Pleasant School, Central School (brick, of eight
rooms), East End; West End, Mt. Pleasant and High School buildings,
all of brick and eight rooms.
The number of teachers had increased to 37 in that period and the
enrollment from 285 in 1886 to 2,175 in  1893.
This period also saw the organization of a High School, and also
its affiliation with McGill University of Montreal. The High School was
first opened in January, 1890, Mr. R. Law, B. A., being principal.
In 1887-88 the total teaching staff for the year was seven, divided
between the three schools as follows: East School, three; West School,
three; False Creek School, one. -~ 10
BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
The old landmark now vacated, and lately used as School Offices
on the Central School Grounds, was erected in 1889, was Vancouver's
first High School, and later used to accommodate classes from the Central
School. The building has served its usefulness, and now the citizens must
congratulate themselves on having provided this splendidly modern and complete Office Building, in which we are now gathered for the first meeting,
at this the close of another school year.
The year has been an eventful one, so many matters of moment have
come before us that it is almost impossible in a brief report to touch upon
them all.
The visit of the University Site Commission to our Province, a few
months ago, was a matter of note, and more particularly to the lower
Mainland and greater Vancouver.
It is with a great deal of pride that we are able to state in this report
that the Provincial University will be located in our midst and will at once
place Vancouver in a commanding position educationally as nothing else
could do.
The Dominion Government Technical Commission were more than
pleased with their visit to our City at the scope of the work done in the
City Schools, and expressed their pleasure when visiting the different centres,
and commented favorably on the construction of the School Buildings, at
the advance made in the Elementary and High Schools, especially with
the Manual Training and Domestic Science Departments, together with
our system of Medical Inspection, and were agreeably surprised at the
large attendance at our Night Classes and the instruction there given. The
visit of the Commission will tend towards bringing the public more in
sympathy with this part of our work, and will eventually force our hands,
so that very soon we will have in our midst Technical Education, as it is
known in Germany, England and the United States.
A step in the right direction has been taken whereby our Attendance
Officers have been appointed Assistant Probation Officers to the Juvenile
Court, and will be an advantage both to the Juvenile Court, and especially
to the schools.
Our Night Classes have proved a greater success than was contemplated. The present attendance is 1,063, while the teaching staff has
been increased to forty-five. The staff of teachers are the best that can
be procured, and are doing efficient and practical work. Too much praise
cannot be given to Mr. J. Kyle, who has had charge of this important
work from its inception.
The McGill University College of B. C.—The work of
the College during the year has been of a satisfactory nature; the attendance is 145, with 10 Professors. The courses taken up are three years
in Arts and two years in Applied Science.  12 BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
At the beginning of the year Dr. F. W. Brydone-Jack was appointed
Medical Supervisor of Schools. This appointment was a step in the right
direction, and the Board were fortunate in securing such an efficient member of the profession to undertake this work. A thorough, painstaking and
careful scrutiny is ever being made, while a boon has been brought to many
children. Dr. Brydone-Jack and his capable assistant have their hands
more than full in looking after the health and ailments of such a large number of pupils.
The attendance of pupils is ever on the increase. The attendance
for the month of October, 1910, was 9,943; for the same month in the
previous year, 8,845; an increase of 1,100 for the year. The estimate
for 1911 is 1,500 additional pupils.
Teachers engaged December, 1910, 226, and for the previous year
193; increase 33. The staff of teachers will be greatly increased when
the three new school buildings are opened. I refer to the Lord Tennyson,
Lord Nelson and Cecil Rhodes School Buildings, which will be ready
for occupancy in a few weeks. It is unfortunate that we have overcrowding in some districts. This state of affairs will exist for some time on
account of the rapid development of the City.
Should the three By-Laws now before the Ratepayers carry,  viz.:
1. School sites    $100,000
2. Extension to King Edward and Britannia High
Schools       295,000
3. Additions and extensions to schools, new build
ings, walks, etc    57A000
$967,000
we will be in a position to cope with the situation to a large extent. I
would advise immediate action, so that buildings may be started early
and ready for occupancy for the beginning of next term.
One thousand pupils are now in attendance at the Mount Pleasant
School. This is the largest attendance of any school in the Province.
Kitsilano School ranks second with 900 pupils.
We now have forty-three buildings in connection with the system,
divided as follows:
School Buildings, proper  21
School  Buildings,   temporary  11
Manual Training centres  5
Janitors'   residences ,  6
Total         43  14
BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
I would like to bear testimony to the work of our teaching staff.
Where so many teachers are engaged we cannot at all times count on perfect work being done, but I am led to believe, after careful consideration,
that we have as loyal, painstaking and efficient a staff as can be formed
in any City. The Board, Teachers and Supervisors are in accOrd, and
are working for the one end, viz., the elevating, uplifting and educating
of the child.
The working out of a system, such as we enjoy, could not have been
accomplished only with good officers. I must therefore compliment the
Board on having such men as C. W. Murray, Secretary and Building
Superintendent, who has been careful and painstaking in all his work.
Mr. W. P. Argue, Superintendent of Schools, has displayed marked
ability in watching over such a growing institution.
During the year there have been eighty-eight meetings of the Board
and Committees, as follows:

REPORT OF THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
Gentlemen\
The reports of the different departments for the year just closed will
show that greater advancement has been made than in any previous year.
A comparison will show that in October, 1909, the pupils numbered
8,845; in October, 1910, 9,942; showing an increase in numbers of
1,097. There has been great difficulty in providing accommodation for
this number in the schools as the rooms were limited. Notwithstanding
that the Alexandra School, containing eight rooms, was opened in January,
1909, it was crowded in October, and an eight-roomed addition is now
under construction and almost completed. The Lord Tennyson School, a
new school at the corner of Tenth Avenue and Cypress Street, will be
opened in a few days, and this will relieve the Kitsilano and Fairview
Schools to some extent. An eight-roomed school will be ready in February,
situated at the corner of Fourteenth Avenue and Alder Street. The Lord
Nelson School, situated at the corner of Templeton Drive and Bismarck
Street, containing four rooms, will also be ready in February. This school
will relieve, to some extent, Grandview and Macdonald Schools. Notwithstanding the buildings in the East, South and West of the City now
approaching completion the schools of the City will be crowded until very
extensive additions are made for school accommodation.
In December there were eighteen temporary class rooms in use.
Taking November enrollment, and allowing for pupils who will enroll
during 191 1, 238 class rooms will be required, allowing forty-five pupils
to the room, or if forty pupils are allowed to the room, 261 class rooms
will be required. There are at present 1 80 public school class rooms, with
twenty-eight rooms ready about February. This leaves 30 rooms to be
provided for on a basis of forty-five pupils to the room, or 53 rooms on a
basis of forty pupils to the room. For efficient teaching and from a
hygienic standpoint forty pupils is considered to be a full number for a
room.
As you are well aware, both High Schools are crowded to overflowing, and it will be impossible to give High School education to the
large number who will be ready to enter in August unless we can take
immediate steps to enlarge the High Schools.
During the past year many substantial additions have been made to
the school equipment. Apparatus, etc., for science in the High Schools
and for nature study in the Public Schools was purchased. Library books,
supplementary readers and kindergarten material were purchased for each
school. Each school has a good library, and four schools have pianos,
purchased from the proceeds of concerts.    Mr. Kyle, while in Great Britain, New Alexandra School
i-JgairT^-~rT    >.f- {'■■■. ■■   ■!      j-    j'
g^fflSSffi^feF
New Lord Tennyson School BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
was authorized to purchase pictures for the schools, and selected for each
school a picture of Queen Victoria, Edward VII, George V and Queen
Mary; also a large number of other pictures, which, when framed and
placed in position, will do much to develop the taste of the pupils and
beautify the halls and class rooms.
I can say that the success of the Manual Training in the King Edward
High School and the pressing demand for the same opportunities for the
pupils in the East End led to the erection of a building on the Britannia
grounds and the purchase of an equipment similar to that of the King Edward High School. Mr. Hill, of Bristol, England, was engaged to take
charge of the new centre. There is a very strong demand for the extension
of the work in both High Schools. The tendency of education along democratic lines is evidenced by the opening of University Classes at night in
large cities, where education may be obtained by those who are unable to
attend day classes. The demand for higher education for those who cannot
attend day classes was very clearly shown in our City by the great success
of the Night Classes established by this Board. The large enrollment, the
practical character of the work, the earnestness and rapid progress of the
students all indicate that the Board in establishing these classes has done
a great deal to improve educational facilities and benefit a large number
of people. The effect on the moral and intellectual development of young
people of classes in Music and Art, which are both profitable and a source
of pleasure, can hardly be overestimated.
The work of Medical Inspection has gone beyond the experimental
stage and the work done by the Department is a source of satisfaction. Not
only has the system adopted worked smoothly, but it has produced excellent
results. One result is the establishment of a special class for unfortunate
children, who, for some reason or another, are unable to advance by ordinary class instruction. Another result is that steps are being taken to see
that children whose parents are unable to provide Medical Attention are
not neglected. Children are an asset of the nation, and it is in the Nation's
interest to provide the best conditions for healthy growth.
The attendance at the schools has been fair during the year. The
Juvenile Court was established in the City and our two attendance officers
were appointed Assistant Probation Officers. The Court has been a great
benefit to the City. The work among children cannot, however, be done
as thoroughly as it should be until steps are taken to put a stop to the employment of children under the Compulsory School Age during school hours
by the passing of a "Childs' Labor Law."
The visit to our City of the Committee on Technical Education, etc.,
tended to emphasize the necessity of a widening of the High School Course
of Studies and the establishment at no very distant date of a large Technical
High School. Such schools have been established for years in Europe and
the United States, and now Toronto and Winnipeg are erecting schools of
this class.    The Commissioners were very much pleased with the Manual II

Training and Domestic Science work of our schools, and particularly with
the scope of the work in the Night Schools.
The choice of Point Grey as the site of the Provincial University
is a matter for universal satisfaction, inasmuch as it makes possible ah educational system which for breadth and thoroughness need be second to none
on the continent.
The completion of the Board Offices is a matter of great satisfaction,
as now much more and better work can be performed by the officials, and
all stock in the stationery line can be kept as it should be, and there still
be storage for the desks, etc., in the basement.
With the increased number of teachers which will be required to cope
with the increasing number of pupils and the greater efficiency that is being
demanded each year from the schools the Board has heavy duties devolving
upon it during the coming year to provide the room and equipment to meet
these demands.
Yours respectfully,
J.  D.  BREEZE,
Chairman Management Committee.  22

DRAWING
W. P. Argue, Esq.,
City Superintendent,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sir:
Since taking over my present duties at the beginning of November, I
have been able to visit all the schools and review most of the year's work.
This has been possible as I had been in touch with the work of the Elementary Schools here for the
past year.
The work of the Elementary Schools for the year in
Drawing, Color and Geometry is very satisfactory.
The pupils in the Senior
Grades are gaining power in
reasoning in Geometry as is
shown by the results of the
midsummer drawing examinations both in Entrance
Classes and High Schools, but
in some of the Intermediate
grades it needs more consistent teaching to be of use to
the children for their higher
work. More attention should
be given to original work.
The students can draw from
objects or copies with success,
but they should be able to
use what they have so
learned. Memory drawing or design gives the student the opportunity to
exercise his own judgment and also the power to create for himself, and,
therefore, it should follow the copying and object drawing.
A comprehensive exhibit of work, including all grades from the
Receiving Class to the High School and Evening Classes, was shown at
the Vancouver Exhibition in August last, and most of this work is now
on view in the auditorium of the Aberdeen School.
There are now special teachers at both High Schools, and I hope
that when the extensions are added to these buildings provision will be made
for properly equipped art rooms as it is impossible to get on satisfactorily
with the more advanced work we hope to take up, while working in ordinary
class rooms. BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
23
It seems a pity that the students of the High School should have to
drop their art work at the end of the first year when they are just getting
hold of the subject. To make up for this in some measure I hope to
form classes for a further course in design and mechanical drawing in
conjunction with the manual training and needlework classes. In this connection a class for copper repousee could also be arranged with advantage.
These subjects would be optional to those who had passed through the
first year's course successfully.
Respectfully submitted,
(Signed) W. P. WESTON,
Supervisor of Drawing.

MUSIC
W. P. Argue, Esq., B. A.,
Superintendent of Schools,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sir:
In presenting this, my fifth annual report, one is reminded of the
rapid flight of time and the necessity of being diligent if much is to be
accomplished in the brief space of time allotted to us.
During the year just brought to a close we have been endeavouring
to systematize our work along the lines laid down in our Music Syllabus,
which, I am pleased to say, has been favorably received by the Principals
and Teachers generally.
With the rapid, growth of our work I find it impossible to give as
much help in the class room as formerly, nevertheless, I am pleased to
report that I find the work generally in a healthy condition. It has been
felt, however, that better facilities for the musical education of our Teachers are needed; so many of them find music a difficult subject to teach. To
meet this need the Night Classes for the study of music have been organized, to which our Teachers are admitted free of charge, and it is pleasing
to note that a large number are taking advantage of them.
At the end of the term the register showed sixty-seven Teachers and
twenty-six Normal Students on the roll.    Truly, this is encouraging. BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
29
The wisdom of the Trustees in organizing these classes is abundantly
proven by the large number of persons attending them and the enthusiasm
which they manifest in their studies. It shows plainly that a long-felt want
is being met. Altogether there are two hundred and twelve persons enrolled
in three classes, which are as follows: Monday evening, a class for beginners; Tuesday evening, a class for the study of choral music and the works
of the great masters of music, and all that pertains to good choral singing.
Needless to say this is a large and enthusiastic class. On Thursday evening we have a class for the study of orchestral music, which numbers twenty-
five.
These classes are open to all persons above school age, irrespective
of age or sex, on payment of a small fee.
Altogether the year has been one of progress and the outlook for the
future is full of encouragement.
My heartiest  appreciation  goes  forth  for  the  kindly sympathy  and
co-operation of all concerned with the management of our schools.
Respectfully submitted,
(Signed) GEO.   P.   HICKS,

DRILL   REPORT,  1910
W. P. Argue, Esq., B. A.,
City Superintendent,
Vancouver,   B.   C.
Dear Sir:
I have the honor to submit a report on the subject of Drill, Physical
Exercises and Rifle Practice for the year  1910.
Physical Drill.—During the year Physical Exercises have been
taught by me and continued by the teachers, who, I am pleased to report,
have used their best endeavor to assist me.
The subject of Physical Drill, as conducted at
present in our City Schools, is indeed a delicate
one, and requires a great deal of judgment for
the following reasons: Only a short amount of
time is available; both sexes, large and small,
weak and strong, receive the same lesson;
amount of space in class room is limited; individual teachers must conduct the class lessons.
I have therefore selected and arranged for
the various grades the most suitable exercises.
The following exercises are now in use : Breathing exercise; several sets of movements to
strengthen the arms; body exercises; shoulder
Sergt.-Major Bundy movements ;    combination   exercises   for   arms,
Drill instructor body and legs, etc. BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
31
In the Primary Grades "Active Movements" have been adopted in
which less rigidity is required, which are considered to be of more benefit
to the pupils.
DAILY MOVEMENTS.—The Daily Movements of the pupils are now
uniform, so far as it is possible, and while of a military nature they have
been arranged from a school point of view. I feel that the same are the
best that can be used, and of most benefit to the teachers in the daily
handling of their classes; also helpful in the maintenance of discipline, and
none of which can very well be overlooked or dispensed with. The following constitute the movements as used daily:
1. Standing at, ease When assembled
2. Attention When   necessary
3. Marching Stepping off with  left foot
4. Position In desks
5. Ready In desks
6. Entering and leaving desks To left or right
7. Marking time When necessary
8. Marching  drill As  desired
9. Straightening  of  lines By  covering
10.     Right,  turn,  two For  dismissing
1 1.     The turnings  (first method) For school purposes
1 2.     Fire drill (From all positions)
RlFLE PRACTICE.—The Rifle Practice during the past year has
been most successful. The Junior Teams have been dismissed and all
schools, except the "Aberdeen" (primary grade), are now represented
by an official team. Fifteen (15) teams are now receiving instruction in
the rudiments of rifle shooting and marksmanship. This is now the tenth
year in which the pupils have attended this subject after school hours.
The competition and general interest is still maintained. Several more
miniature ranges have been provided at the schools where space permits,
and have been greatly appreciated by the teams and others who desire
to practice.
FlRE DRILL.—I am pleased to report that the important subject of
"Fire Drill" is receiving proper attention, and that both teachers and pupils
understand all requirements in case of emergency. 32
BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
SCHOOL CONCERTS.—Two individual school concerts, consisting
of Music and Drills, were held during the year; the Simon Fraser School
in February, and Kitsilano School in December. I am of the opinion
that these concerts were a decided success, as the items were more, specially
arranged as object lessons in order to be of benefit to all who took part.
In conclusion I desire to again take this opportunity to thank one and
all for their assistance in maintaining general discipline in our City Schools.
Respectfully submitted,

ATTENDANCE REPORT
W. P. Argue. Esq., B. A.,
City Superintendent,
Vancouver,   B.   C.
Dear Sir*.
I have the honor to submit to you this, my fourth, annual report for
the year 1910.
There was a total of 2,031  cases investigated, made up as follows:
1964 complaints that were reported from the
various schools, 222 that were discovered on the
streets during school hours, and 67 that were given
by the Medical Officer.
In January there were 1 75 cases; February,
261 ; March, 197; April, 251 I May, 168; June,
169; September, 196; October, 253; November
and December, 292.
Out of the complaints that were investigated
from the schools truancy was discovered 1 50 times,
the same being in 22 of the street cases.
There were nine cases of infectious disease
discovered that had not been reported.
It was necessary to bring the parents of
eleven children before the Police Magistrate for
violation of the compulsory clause of the Public
Schools Act. Convictions were secured in five cases and small fines imposed. One case was dismissed and the others withdrawn after a warning
had been given by the Court. In passing here I might state that only the
worst cases were dealt with in this manner and after every other means
had been tried without success. I think it would be to our advantage to
have such cases tried in the Juvenile Court; there it would be possible to
have the child appear, and then the Judge could size up the situation
much better.
James Inglis
Attendance Officer
Since the inauguration of the Juvenile Court and Detention Home
some of our habitual truants have been attending regularly, they having
got into more serious trouble and are now on probation. 34 BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
There are a great many young-looking children working in some of
our departmental stores and laundries, and I would earnestly urge that
the matter be taken up with the Attorney General, so that we might receive
power to enter such places during business hours for the purpose of questioning employees. The necessary authority could be obtained under the
present Factory Act.
Yours respectfully,
(Signed) JAS. INGLIS,

DOMESTIC SCIENCE
W. P. Argue, Esq., B. A.,
City Superintendent,
Vancouver,   B.   C.
Dear  Sir:
I beg to submit the following annual report of the work done in the
Domestic Science Department of the Public Schools for the year   1910:
The work in this Department may be reviewed under the following
heads:
1. The Elementary Sewing in the Intermediate Grades.
2. The Elementary Domestic Science in the Senior Grades.
3. The Domestic Arts in the High Schools.
The Elementary Sewing Course at present includes lessons on all
the various plain stitch forms, their use, sewing on buttons, hooks and
eyes, making eyelets, buttonholes, etc., darning, patching, etc., and the
making of the apron and other articles which will be required in the coming
Cookery Classes. The work is planned for two years, and as the teachers
become more familiar with the work the course may be broadened. As
was planned, the actual teaching is done by the regular grade teachers,
while the boys are at Manual Training. The Sewing Supervisor visits
these classes regularly to ascertain progress or give help where it is needed.
As there are thirty-seven classes now having weekly classes in Sewing (an
increase of fifteen over last year), visits to capable teachers are made
occasionally, while less adept teachers are visited every week.    The Super- 36
BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
visor is at the office weekly to help those who are weak. The progress
made has been very encouraging. The teachers have been conscientious
and painstaking, and the pupils like the work. Cupboards for the storing
of material and the exhibit of finished work have been put into a number
of schools. We hope to shortly get them into all, so that parents and
others interested may be able to see what is being done in any school
visited.
The Elementary work in Domestic Science was continued during the
spring term in the centres already established: Aberdeen, Model, Seymour,
Roberts and Simon Fraser. In September
another centre, Alexandra, was opened and Miss
M. Rath added to the staff. There are now
thirty-eight classes receiving weekly lessons in
Domestic Science. A uniform course of study
was adopted by the teachers in September, and
although it will doubtless be subject to much
discussion and many changes and it will take
some time before it can be regularly followed, it
should be a great help in systematizing the work.
When there is an advanced course in the High
School, as is planned for the near future, there
will be more opportunity of seeing the progress
made by the pupils. The work in Sewing is not
allowed to drop here, but all spare minutes are
occupied in making the equipment for new centres
or in other work brought by the pupils themselves.
The Home Economics work in the High School is still confined to
Domestic Arts, principally sewing. Although the pupils at present in the
High Schools, as a rule, have had no elementary training, very good work
has been done. While, in some cases, the actual work has shown this,
the interest and endeavor shown by the pupils was very encouraging, and
when the pupils now taking elementary work reach this stage the work will
be less laborious for both teacher and pupils.
Very pretty and creditable exhibits of work were held at both High
Schools in June and were visited by many interested. The Elementary
Classes made a very good showing of the work done in the first year of
the course. At these exhibits refreshments made by the Cookery Classes
were served.
The Cookery Classes invited their parents and friends to class lessons
in June and served the dishes made.
An exhibit of Cookery and Sewing was sent to the Vancouver Exhibition, but owing to its taking place in the summer vacation and the. character
of our work it was difficult to make it as satisfactory as it might otherwise
have been.
All of which is respectfully submitted,

MANUAL TRAINING
W. P. Argue, Esq., B. A.,
City Superintendent,
Vancouver,   B.   C.
Dear  Sir:
The year that has passed has seen the opening of a new centre at
the Alexandra School and of a new building for the Fairview district. The
latter is already full, and it will probably be necessary to make provision
for a new centre nearer Point Grey to accommodate the children of that
district.
The staff of Instructors has been increased to seven in the Public
School centres and two in the High Schools, the latter being engaged part
of the time in teaching drawing. The year's work has been very satisfactory in both drawing and woodwork, and the Instructors have united in
an effort to gain individuality and self-judgment in the production of the
models and in the awarding of the marks. This, in my judgment, is one
of the most important points in character forming, for which Manual
Training is so specially adapted.
A collection of school work in Drawing, Domestic Science and
Manual Training was shown in August, 1910, at the Vancouver Exhibition, each centre contributing specimens. Several pieces from the King
Edward High School were made as class models and these are being used
to furnish the Supervisor's Office. 38
BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
I cannot but reiterate my remarks of years previous regretting the
lack of time to effectively carry out a High School Course, which will more
fully prepare the boys who do not intend to continue their studies in the
University, but rather to enter some mechanical occupation. I trust the
members of the School Board will endeavor to so amend the School Law
as to allow optional courses in Vocational or Technical work, the Domestic
Arts, and Science and Art as opportunity affords and necessity demands.
If such be thought desirable and possible it would be well in planning the
extensions of the Britannia and King Edward High Schools to so arrange
the building plans as to ensure proper accommodation for those branches.
Faithfully yours,

MEDICAL INSPECTION
W. P. Argue, Esq., B. A.,
City Superintendent,
Vancouver,   B.   C.
Dear Sir:
The following report on the Medical Inspection of the Vancouver
City Schools for the year ending December 31st, 1910, is respectfully
submitted:
As the object of Medical Inspection is to promote the health and
well-being of the pupils, everything which directly or indirectly concerns
their health must be ever before us. The task of examining the pupils is
a long and a hard one and leaves but little time to
investigate such important matters as lighting and
heating, ventilation, sanitation, seating, exercises and
home surroundings, but we have attempted to look
into these matters as thoroughly as our time would
allow us. The work has been made harder on
account of the many changes made in our plans and
methods, necessary because we wanted to find the
best way of accomplishing the work, but now we
have the work pretty well systematized, resulting in
less loss of time and more thorough work. Beginning with the first month of 1911 our card system
will be in full swing. This system will act as a scho
directory for each school; it will record the educational progress of each pupil through his entire
school course; it will indicate the different diseases
and defects which may affect a child during his
school life ; it will keep track of all children excluded for any contagious disease, and will keep a
record of the vision of each child for every year of his school course, so
that any eye trouble may be discovered and treated early. In 1910 an
Act was passed by our Provincial Legislature instituting Medical Inspection
throughout our entire Province. The cards used and the medical information and examination required will be almost identical throughout the Province. The Act provides for a yearly examination of all pupils, and for
teachers and janitors as well, so that the health of all concerned with school
work may be safeguarded.
We expect to visit the majority of the schools twice a month, but the
smaller schools only once a month. The Principal of the school will be
notified in advance, so that everything may be in readiness. At each visit
the following pupils will be examined:
1. All children suffering from any skin eruption.
2. Any child which a teacher may require to be examined.
Dr. F. W. Brydone-Jack 40 BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
3. One-half class for an examination of the skin, eyes, ears, nose,
throat, teeth, tonsils,  glands, heart,  lungs,  etc.
4. One or two classes for an examination of the skin, eyes, ears,
throat, teeth, tonsils, etc., but not of the heart or lungs.
5. Special examinations of the eyes, ears, throats, hearts and lungs,
etc.
Parents of children suffering from contagious disease or any physical
defect of eyes, ears, throat, teeth, lungs, heart, etc., will receive a "Notice
in a sealed envelope." Children suffering from contagious diseases will
be excluded from school. The parents of children suffering from contagious
diseases or from the more serious physical defects will be visited within a
few days of receiving the notice, and where necessary, the need for treatment explained. If in the interval between these visits any child develops
sores, itch, ringworm, an unclean head, or any skin eruption of a doubtful
nature the teacher will exclude that child from school, will direct him to
visit the School Medical Officer on the same or on the following day, and
will notify both the parent and the School Medical Officer in writing on
the same day as to the reason for the exclusion. Children so excluded for
contagious disease will only be permitted to return to school by presenting
a certificate from the School Medical Officer, who will have regular office
hours for examining such cases. The Medical Department wishes to assume
the responsibility of getting these pupils returned to school as early as possible, but if a child is not ready to return to school within a reasonable time
and is neglecting treatment, his case will be taken in charge by the Attendance Department. If a teacher suspects a pupil attending school of having
contracted an infectious disease, such as measles, scarlet fever, diphtheria,
chickenpox, mumps, etc., he shall cause such a pupil to be immediately
isolated and shall telephone the School Medical Department immediately,
so that the child may be examined, and if infectious be excluded from
school. The class room, books, etc., used by such a pupil will then be
suitably disinfected or dealt with and his classmates will be frequently inspected for a certain number of days following, so as to prevent any further
spread of the disease. If a child breaks out in an infectious disease, as
one of the above, after school hours on a day he attended school, or on
the following day, the teacher shall telephone this news to the School Board
whenever such a case is discovered, so that an investigation may be made
and any necessary disinfection carried out.
Heating and ventilation are closely related in our schools. The Central, Strathcona, Old Seymour and the Old Roberts Schools depend entirely on their heating for their ventilation. The rooms in such buildings
are not efficiently ventilated. Hie air in such rooms usually shows that
carbon dioxide is present in large quantities, it being on an average 0.08%
in each room. In two old schools, viz., the Mount Pleasant and the
Dawson, fans have been installed, which force extra amount of fresh air
to each room, but owing to the construction of the buildings several of the BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES 41
rooms are neither well ventilated nor properly heated. Certainly in these
two schools the heating and ventilation could be greatly improved on, but
it is doubtful if an efficiency such as is attained in the more modern buildings,
such as the Lord Roberts, the Britannia and the Simon Fraser, can be
obtained. The size of the class greatly affects the ventilation; a room
which is perfectly ventilated for a class of forty would not be well ventilated
for a class of sixty or seventy. Owing to the rapid growth of the City it
has been frequently necessary to have classes much larger than they should
be, and consequently such class rooms were not as well ventilated as they
should be. Whether the ventilation is defective on account of large classes
or on account of the system employed it has its effect upon both pupil and
teacher, resulting in headaches, pale faces, and a loss in the power of concentration, thereby lessening the amount of school work done.
The amount of light and the direction from which it comes is most
important for school work. In schools such as the Lord Roberts, the Seymour, the Aberdeen, the Alexandra, etc., the lights all enter from the left,
and there is an abundance of it. In our schools nearing completion the light
enters each room from the left side only, and there is even more of it than
in the schools just mentioned. In these schools there is one square foot of
window space for every four square feet of floor space, and as a result there
will be no better lighted schools in America today. In schools of the old
type, such as the Mount Pleasant, Dawson, Central and the Strathcona,
there are many rooms which are badly and improperly lighted. In these
rooms the light enters from the right side and from the rear. As most
pupils write with the right hand such a light causes the hand to throw a
shadow in which the pupil is compelled to write and unnecessarily strain
his eyes or else twist himself in his seat to get some light from the rear, and
so render himself liable to curvature of his spine. In these rooms an unusually large number of pupils complain of eye-strain. The light from
the rear is particularly hard on the teacher. There is a constant glare in
his eyes, which some have found most distressing.
The sanitary arrangements in our more modern schools are, on the
whole, fairly satisfactory, but in the older schools many of the lavatories
will require to be completely replaced by modern arrangements, and in
others many improvements will be necessary. The common drinking cup
is being abolished and drinking fountains will be installed in all our schools.
The common towel is also going, and other up-to-date and sanitary arrangements will be provided. For the last few years it has been the custom to
oil the floors of our schools. This effectually settled the dust problem,
but owing to the liberal way in which some of the janitors used the oil, and
their forgetfulness to remove the dust which it collected, the oiled floors
became a nuisance. Many a skirt was spoiled, and only a few days did
it take the oil to spoil them. During the Fall term the use of the oil was
discontinued, and now many of the janitors raise clouds of dust in their
sweeping. Oil sawdust, etc., is used to keep the dust down; oiled brushes
are also used, but do not seem to be universally satisfactory.     This dust 42 BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
causes a great deal of unnecessary work; it is hard on the lungs of the
sweepers and it is unsanitary. Oil properly applied should be fairly satisfactory, and it should not spoil the teachers' skirts. Before applying it the
floors should be well washed with hot water and soda, and should then ■
dry thoroughly. Then apply the oil warm, in a thin even coat, over the
floors. The oil should be on the floors for at least a week before school
commencement. It should be applied twice a year, but where traffic is
greatest may. be applied three, or even four times a year. In regard to this
matter of sanitation, also in regard to heating and ventilation, it is the duty
of each teacher to report any defect immediately and in writing, so that the
matter may be attended to before any harm results.
A school child necessarily spends much of his time in his seat.    His
habitual attitude while sitting at his desk will have a decided effect upon j
his health, his spine and his eyesight.    It is a common thing, on entering a
class room, to see many pupils lounging over their desks, compressing their I
chests and the lungs and heart inside; their eyes only three or four inches /
above their exercise books in which they are busily writing resulting in congestion of the eyeballs  and excessive eyestrain,  conditions which lead to
weak eyes, and even short sight, that incurable and often dangerous dis-j
ease, one shoulder often much higher than the other having a great tendency
to spinal curvature.     It will require a great deal of attention on the part
of the teacher to get these pupils to assume proper attitudes and make them >
keep in proper position.
In regard to the matter of physical exercise, there is an Instructor of
Physical Drill, who impresses on the children the necessity for an erect
attitude and discipline. The children receive training in drills, marches
and arm, head and body exercises. These exercises last from one to three
minutes, and each class is exercised a number of times each day at the times
when they are changing from one lesson to another. The windows are
opened, the children get the benefit of fresh air, the muscles are relieved
from their cramped positions and draw the blood from the brain, and so
relieve and refresh the mind. The pupils then resume their work with increased vigor. The exercises are very simple for the primary classes, but
become more complicated in the higher classes. No apparatus is used. The
exercises have been so planned that either sex, the weak and the strong, may
take part with no danger of overstrain. Whenever an occasion arises when
the exercise might not be beneficial to a pupil that pupil is excused. We
do not wish to give the children hard muscular exercises with apparatus in
gymnasiums, such is necessary where there are no playgrounds. We feel
here that healthy outdoor games on our large grounds, with an abundance
of fresh air, will do the children more good than class exercises in a stuffy
gymnasium. While on the matter of exercise it would be well to require
that all pupils, before being allowed to take part in strenuous games like
football, etc., should furnish a certificate that their heart and lungs are in
a good condition and can stand the strain. I would like to see this instituted
in our High Schools, and then later apply to the Public Schools as well. BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
43
Important as is the school building, the ventilation,  the sanitation,
lighting, etc., the conditions existing at the pupils' homes are even more
important.    There healthy surroundings, sunshine, fresh air, good food and
good habits are necessary if the child is to be healthy and is to benefit by
his educational facilities.    The great majority of children have good healthy
homes, but there is a rapidly increasing number who live under the most
deplorable dirty and unsanitary conditions in tenements and cabins.    The
City is so prosperous as a whole and is progressing so rapidly that few
realize the number of extremely poor people and the conditions under which
many of them live.    The school nurse does a particularly good work in
visiting such homes where she will give a mother a little instruction on home
hygiene, baby feeding and dressing, etc., so that the children may be the
healthier.    It is intended to give the girls in the higher grades one or two
demonstrations a year on "The care of babies, feeding and dressing, modification of milk, a few practical points in home nursing, how to make mustard plasters, poultices, stupes, changing an invalid's bed, etc., and through
the Domestic Science Department lessons on invalid cookery, the making
of rice water, gruels and other foods which invalids require."    Such a training will be of immense value to these little mothers of the future, will be
a help to their mothers, and will be a long step towards making the needy
home and its children healthy.    Many of the children in these homes suffer
from physical defects, poor eyesight, discharging ears, enlarged tonsils and
adenoids, chest complaints, skin diseases, etc., and are not in a position to
have treatment carried out.    It is necessary that these children receive treatment, and often treatment is required urgently.     However,  this matter is
now before the Vancouver Medical Association, and they will provide a
satisfactory solution to the difficulty.
We are now opening up a class for pupils suffering from physical
nervous affections of such a nature that progress in the ordinary class is
impossible or very slow. A specially trained teacher will take charge of
this class and each child will receive special instruction. As the class grows
it will be subdivided into classes for the blind, for the deaf, and for those
suffering from affections of the nervous system. Before long it may be
necessary to open up a class for pupils affected with ringworm, for this
disease necessitates a long absence from school in the majority of cases,
and with the growth of the school population there will be an increase in
the number affected with ringworm.
During the year First Aid .boxes were pMgfed in all the schools, and
beginning in 1911 lectures on First Aid will be given in the Night Schools
each week until March 30th, 1911, and will commence again when the
Night Schools reopen in the Fall. Thus an opportunity will be given to
teachers, parents and others interested to avail themselves of this useful and
often life-saving knowledge.
There is a By-Law now before the people which, if passed, will relieve the overcrowding of the new schools and will give the Board the funds
to make the necessary alterations in heating, ventilation, lighting and sanitation. 44 BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
In conclusion I must speak of the great help the School Nurse has
been to me, of her long hours and thorough work, and her willingness to
do anything which might further the health and happiness of the school
children. I must also express my gratitude to the Board of School Trustees,
the Officers and the Teachers in the schools for their interest and support
in my work.

Dear Sir:
I have much pleasure in forwarding my report of the Night Schools
for   1910.
The syllabus of work for the Term 1910-1911 was considerably
enlarged this session, and embraced classes in Geometry and Mensuration,
Shorthand, Advanced English, Advanced Bookkeeping, Sheet Metal
Working, Carpentry and Joinery, Forestry and Music.
The second week in October saw the classes in full swing, with 1,229
students in all subjects.
The individual students numbered 1,063 and the Instructors 44.

There is every evidence of the classes being appreciated; that they
will do a great work is certain, but so far we have been working under
difficulties owing to the want of suitable accommodation. The rooms over
the new offices will be a great boon in this respect.
The payroll for October amounted to $1,066.25, and for November $1,529.00, and December $1,193.50.
Taking them as a whole, the staff are enthusiastic and earnest. Many
are sacrificing a great deal in order to help along the good work, and we
are endeavoring to add to their number an Instructor in Shipbuilding, in
Applied Mechanics, in Embroidery, Millinery, and First Aid to the Injured. 48

Thus work extends, and I trust that in March I will be justified in
sending a satisfactory report on the year's work.

REPORT OF BUILDING COMMITTEE
To the
School Board,
Vancouver,
B. C.
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen:
It is a pleasure, as well as a duty, to submit to you report of my Committee for the year just closed.    Such a vast amount of work, both general
and detail, has presented that it would be impossible to do it justice in an
ordinary report.    I will attempt to deal only with the most salient of the
various items to which thought has been given.    Let me preface by comparing the number of meetings held this and previous years.     (Comparisons
in this case are not odious.)    In 1907 the total meetings of this Committee
were 8 (6 regular and 2 special), and the attendance of its members 5%.
In 1908, 15 meetings (7 regular and 8 special), and the attendance 12%.
In 1909,  18 meetings  (9 regular and 9 special), attendance 13%.    In
1910, 38 meetings (12 regular and 26 special), and the attendance 33J4-
According to this progression, and when we allow for more than double
the amount of buildings we have outlined for 1911  over 1910, it will be
evident that a place on this Committee is no sinecure.    The primary care of
your Committee has been to provide ample accommodation, but, owing to
the unprecedented growth of the City and the consequently increase of over
100 pupils per month, the task has been a most difficult one.    We greatly
regret the over-crowding in almost all sections of the City, but under the
circumstances we did all that could of right be expected of us.     In our
plans for buildings we hope for one year at least to obviate this difficulty,
but must bear in mind that Vancouver will increase its calls, because it is
destined to rank in population and education second to none in the Dominion.   Remembering how cheerfully the citizens have voted us monies in the
past, we are grateful, and confidently look to them in the present instance.
I will not say it would be a serious blow to Education not to vote these
monies, for the citizens of Vancouver are keenly alive to the needs, and
thus can be trusted.
During the early part of the year a great deal of time was spent in
deciding on the best sites. No pains or time was spared to get the best at
the best terms possible, and now we hand over our choice to the citizens
that are to be for their legacy.
The grounds around the Simon Fraser School, the Britannia, and
others, are attractive, and where trees, shrubbery and flowers are in evidence
will be monumental of the citizens' regard.
Your Committee is giving careful attention to a system of beautifying
the school grounds, which we tipust our successors will perfect and speedily
apply to all the schools. There ought not to be in our City one school
without ornamentation, no more than there should be a cheerless, bare
schoolroom.    The flowers, as well as pictures, make much for culture and
I BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
refinement.    The only caution or reservation here is not to allow to shrubs
and flowers any grounds actually necessary to recreation.
The planning of the school buildings has not only been a problem of
convention and efficiency, but also a problem of aesthetic training. The
buildings must be of the best, and at the least cost. Your Board thoughtfully arranged early in its year for the Building Inspector and its Medical .
Supervisor to visit Seattle and Tacoma to study the best designs there and
obtain the latest data as to methodsof heating, ventilation, equipment, sanitary arrangements, etc. Needless to say, this visit did splendid service, as
is readily attested in the chemical and physical laboratories, advance in
Manual Training work, and, not least to teachers and pupils, the marked
improvement in the sanitary arrangements of our schools. In matter of
lighting and ventilation, our new schools are models, and the older ones
have been in this respect modernized. Your Committee is satisfied that the
lighting and heating systems are such as to concern the comfort and health
of the pupils and win the admiration of our citizens.
It is a matter for congratulation that this year's buildings are all fireproof, being constructed of concrete. Besides the great advantage in matter
of safety, there is saving in cost of insurance and of maintenance.
The schools built during the year were each of eight rooms, and cost
together $240,000.00. We may give a brief description. The Lord
Nelson School, situated on Templeton Drive and Charles Street; the Lord
Tennyson School, between Tenth and Cypress; and (yet unnamed) one
on Fourteenth Avenue and Alder Street, have all two facades, and these
with the returns are faced with brick. Like most of the schools formerly
built, they are of the Renaissance design, the main entrance being adorned
with massive stone columns. They are all fully modern and very conveniently arranged. Being fire-proof, the cost of maintenance will be the
minimum, and no need for fire-escapes, which are always more or less
unsightly. In every case the toilets are of tiled floors and walls, the flushing is individual and automatic. The stairs are all fire-proof. I might call
your attention to the fact that the by-law calls for 18-inch per hundred
pulls, which would give us 6 feet, but we actually have 12 feet. The
corners of the steps are all nicely rounded off. Other buildings cost approximately $90,000.00. This description in the main answers for the Board
Room Offices. Your Committee would suggest that the parents and citizens
be cordially invited to visit and inspect these offices. Indeed, an evening
might well be set aside for this purpose.
Neat wire fences are placed around the school grounds, except in the
case of the Britannia High School, where the stone retaining walls will be
terminated above by an iron fence. All the new schools are provided with
thermostats. Two of our schools—the King Edward High School and the
Model School—have gymnasiums.
We have begun to use oil for fuel, but have not so far secured just
the quality of burner required.    This has been proved a saving in cost, will BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES 53
be cleaner, and will relieve the yards of those distressing wood-piles. To
insure greater protection against fire, the pipes in the basements have all
been covered with asbestos.
In many cases the tram lines pass the school grounds, and to avoid
possible accidents the gates on that side of the school are locked and teachers directed to dismiss their pupils through other gates, and always to attend
carefully in person, the dismissal. Other danger features received attention, notably, the bridge on Park Drive at Ninth Avenue, where, through
the foresight of your Board, a policeman is placed both morning and afternoon, and is to continue till the permanent bridge is constructed.
Your Committee, on suggestion, waited on the Railway Commission
re placing permanent bridges along Ninth Avenue and Templeton Drive, to
cross the G. N. Railway. The Commission granted both requests and
ordered the work to be completed in six months.
During the year an electric fire alarm system has been installed in the
King Edward High School and in the Model School. Under this system,
if the temperature of the building in the vacinity of the detectors should
suddenly rise two degrees above the normal, the gong is rung, automatically,
thereby showing there is danger, and the pupils, if in session, can at once be
dismissed. In protection against fire—so insuring the safety of all pupils—
there is perhaps no city as well provided for as Vancouver.
The Chairman of the Management Committee, as well as the Chairman of the Board, will deal fully with Manual Training and Domestic
Science, but we can preface their report by saying that for the former we
are now providing separate rooms so as not to interfere with the regular
school work. (The Britannia High School Manual Training room has
just been completed at a cost of $2,500.00, and is easily the best in the
City.) For Domestic Science, this will suffice: during the year we provided the most modern utensils and appliances for demonstrating the art
and giving instruction.
In concluding as to what we have done, we must admit that not all
has been achieved that was asked for. Some of your Committee wished to
see gymnasium and swimming baths for the new schools; we were not all
satisfied that they were imperative—indeed, the idea is growing that such
features do not greatly assist in the actual work of school.
Your Board is well aware of our detailed needs for 1911:
Tenth and Cypress Street—Extension to present school building. $ 92,000
Charles and Templeton—Extension to^present school building. . 81,000
Block 196, Kitsilano—New school building       57,000

Britannia High School—Extension to present school building. . - 145,000
Land for School Site in the South Side  100,000
$ 967,000
For your Board's information, we may define our plans for this year.
All grounds are to be improved and beautified, and cement walks are to be
laid around the schools. Old buildings will be renewed and in them the
more modern ventilating systems installed. Lavatories #re to be provided
with modern and up-to-date conveniences, and drinking fountains had of the
most sanitary kind known. The vacuum system of cleaning is to be used
—probably the Rotrex vacuum system.
We would offer your Board, then, suggestions for early consideration
and advise action during the year: That all our schools should have direct
communication with the city fire halls; that Janitors' residences be erected
on, or in, close proximity to the schools; that in future each new school be
given a formal opening; that we lend every encouragement towards getting
a Technical School for Vancouver.
Mr. Chairman, this report cannot be complete without a reference to
those who gave direction or effect to the year's work. I wish to express
my appreciation of the uniform courtesy and consideration always shown
us by the members of the Management Committee and of the Board, in both
cases, for the valued advice or suggestions they have afforded the Building
Committee. I would further thank, for their zeal, diligence and unfailing
consideration, my colleagues, Geo. J. Dyke, W. E. Flumerfelt, Dr. W. D.
Brydone-Jack. Not one of these gentlemen has spared time or toil. It is
to be hoped their successors will prove as willing and successful, and earn
the like confidence of your Board. But those who give effect to our wishes
—the staff, if you will—it would be hard to do them justice. Mr. Leech,
Architect, has shown an entire grasp of his work, though handicapped somewhat in taking office late in February. We have always found Mr. Leech
prepared to advise on the minutest details; his appointment has proved not
only of great service to the Board, but a very marked saving financially, as
the entire work of his department for the twelve months ending February
28th, 1911, will be less than 1.68%.
Dr. F. W. Brydone-Jack early in the year took up the duties of
Medical School Supervisor, with Miss E. Breeze as Nurse. I voice the
opinion of every member of the Board when I say his work has been most
thoroughly and efficiently performed. Not alone has the up-keep of the
pupils had careful attention, but throughout the year the most valuable BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
55
assistance has been given in matters of ventilation and sanitation. Schools
formerly much at fault in these respects have been made fully modern. The
good results in this department will yearly become more apparent. In the
near future the sphere of work must be enlarged and further assistance
provided.
The Secretary, Mr. C. W. Murray—I voice the estimate of every
member of my Committee, and of your entire Board, in saying—that for
efficiency, system and diligent care of details he could have no superior.
His work as Secretary, Supply Agent, and Building Inspector is quite
onerous, but he is ever ready to advise or furnish any information required.
His wise counsel and ready suggestions result from long experience in matters relating to his office. To the assiduity and efficiency of Mr. Murray
and our other staff members we owe largely the success achieved.
In conclusion, I can but hope we may, together, have opportunity to
labor in the cause of Education during this year.
Respectfully submitted,
J. J. DOUGAN,
Chairman Building Committee, Grounds, Etc. 56
