Population.
On roll, March 31st, 1924   127
.Admissions during year      62
Total  189
Releases during year      54
Total on roll, March 31st, 1925  135
Making an average of 136 per month during the year.
It is worthy of mention that out of the fifty-four boys released during the fiscal year, none
of them have been returned and, so far as our information goes, the majority are doing well,
and all would be doing well if the parents or guardians had undergone as great a change as the
boys did while in our care.
At present we know of one boy earning over $200 a month as a stenographer by day and
by playing a cornet in the evening, both of which he learned while with us. Another is an
engineer on board a ship; several are owners of their own cars and many are scattered all
over the world making history.

WORK   ACCOMPLISHED   BY   DEPARTMENTS.
Tailoring Department.
(One man and four boys.)
In an institution like ours, where boys are ever on the move and being full of life and
vitality, and where play has an important part in their daily life, there is of necessity a heavy
demand made upon their clothing.
The following will convey how busy this department has been during the year:—
New clothing—
Overalls  432

Pants    149

Suits pressed and repaired  :       52
Total articles   1,654
Shoemaking Department.
(One man and eight boys.)
During the year this department did considerable minor repairs to harness, belts, straps,
etc., from the Farm Department, in addition to the following:—
Credits.
New boots made, 193 pairs at $5.50 per pair   $1,061 50
Boots repaired, 1,032 pairs at $2 per pair      2,084 00
Total credits   $3,125 50
Debit.
Shoe-finding and replacements  $1,084 03
Blacksmith Department.
In this department all of the minor repairs to farm machinery and implements are carried
out. Shovels are rehandled, pickaxes sharpened, bolts made, and a hundred-and-one things
attended to that would be expensive if purchased outside. The usefulness of this department
will be increased in the future as it is now better housed and equipped.
Paint Department.
(One man part time and three boys.)
The following work has been done during the year by the Paint Department: Completion
of auditorium, interior and exterior, all three-coat work on exterior and three-coat work on
interior. New blacksmith-shop received three coats of paint. Painting No. 1 cottage, interior
only, received three coats of paint throughout. All fence-work around the grounds received
two coats of paint. Painting of new calf-barn, interior and exterior, all two-coat work, besides
considerable limewashing. All this work being in addition to that done by the Public Works
Department.
Garage.
(Two boys.)
In this department all minor repairs and cleaning of cars are done by the boys, which
means a considerable saving; in fact, our expenses in connection with the upkeep of cars during
the year was very much less than last year, due chiefly to the good condition of the roads and
the installation of a new gasolene-pump.
Grading and General Work.
(One man and new-comers and all difficult boys.)
During the year considerable work has been carried out on the sports-field and hundreds
of yards of drain dug. We also erected fences around pasture-fields and poultry-runs, as well
as excavating for new auditorium and building of roads and parks to same. This group is at
present engaged in putting down curbs and general improvements around the buildings under
the direction of the Public Works Department. Plumbing ajstd Engineering Departments.
(One man and six boys.)
In this department a great deal of work is accomplished that cannot very well be shown
in black and white, but which aggregates in the year to a considerable amount. Appended is
an extract from report submitted by our plumber and engineer:—
" I beg to submit report on the plumbing, heating, and electrical departments of your school
from May 8th, 1924, to March 31st, 1925.
" To begin with, I find that the care of plumbing fixtures, sewers and drains, regulating
water-supply to avoid excessive use of water, watching heating plants and electrical motors in
various shops and buildings causes one man to step lively.
"The sewerage system gave us a lot of trouble last year owing to faulty joints. I found
cement joints made with plenty of cement, sticking up and never swabbed out, causing drains
to block up and the necessity of excavating, taking up and relaying the same.
" Another big undertaking was practically all the catch-basins and cement boxes for various
valves, etc., had water-drains leading into them, but no outlet drain, causing boxes to be full
and overflowing with water and making it compulsory to put in outlet drains. Five hundred
dollars would not cover this work if it had been done by outside lielp.
" On the general repairs a great deal of mending has been done to avoid laying new traps,
etc., in addition to the erection of the large new building (school-rooms and auditorium), causing
quite a large job of plumbing with twenty-one fixtures, all the necessary drains, traps, and
septic tank, also the necessary separate water-supply with fire-hydrants, a heating plant with
1,000 feet of radiation distributed through the building, with a boiler large enough to heat in
addition the proposed swimming-tank and gymnasium.
"Water has been laid to the new blacksmith-shop. Another quite big undertaking has been
completed in the way of water-supply, where some 1,600 feet of pipe has been laid, connecting
up all the buildings that is supplied (except for a dry season in summer) from a lake above
the school.
" In the sick-room and cell-room alterations were done with plumbing and two new bathtubs installed. In the electrical department a great deal of alterations, rewiring, and extensions
have been made with repairs to electrical motors for the various shops, also the wiring of the
new blacksmith-shop, sick-rooms, and cell-rooms.
"All of which is respectfully submitted. "(Sgd.)    E. Keith."
Public Works.
During the year considerable improvements have been made around the grounds by the
Tublic Works Department, amongst them being the installation of a road-lighting system,
interior decorating of No. 2 cottage, new curbing, and providing plans for the new swimming-
tank and gymnasium.
Carpenter Department.
(One man and seven boys.)
This department has been kept busy during the year with constructive work, amongst the
most important being the completion of the new auditorium and class-rooms, a splendid building
and a great asset to the institution. New paint and blacksmith shops, calf-pens, as well as
several hundred feet of picket fences and trellis-work. In addition to this work, new tables
were made and the general appearance of the buildings kept in good repair.
Music Section.
As in previous years, we found considerable difficulty in maintaining our brass band to a
full state of efficiency, owing to the number of band-boys who were released during the year,
resulting at times in making certain sections of our band so weak that it was impossible for
the band to play in public. Our band this year was in greater demand than ever, and when
we were able to go ont with credit to ourselves, we fulfilled engagements at Vancouver, Haney,
Burnaby, Point Grey, and Coquitlam. 15 Geo. 5 British  Columbia. P 13
School.
(Two female teachers.)
We moved into our new school building during the year and with the increased .facilities
there has been a very marked improvement in the work performed by the boys.
Division I.—In this division we commenced the year with twenty-one pupils. Nine were
added from new admissions, seven were released for trades and duties, and four returned home.
The total number in this division is now nineteen and their classifications are as follows: Grade
VI., 2; Grade VII., 7; Grade VIII., 1; and their average on March 31st, 1925, based on conduct
and work, was as follows :   Highest, 89 per cent.; lowest, 63 per cent.; medium, 74 per cent.
Division II.—We commenced the year with twenty-nine pupils. Two were promoted to'
Division I., one was released for trade, and three returned home. The total number of pupils
in this division is now twenty-three and they are classified as follows: Grade 1., 2; Grade II., 5;
Grade III., 6; Grade IV., 6 ; Grade V., 4 ; and their average on March 31st, 1925, based on conduct
and work, was: Highest, 70 per cent.; lowest, 40 per cent.; medium, 66 per cent.; a creditable
showing considering that nearly all of these boys are backward and difficult to handle outside.
Commercial and Business Course.—At the present time we have but two students in the
office who study in the free time accorded by the daily office routine. We have no set text-book
for commercial law and these boys only take lessons as they rise incidentally in our work.
During the year two boys were returned to their homes. Both these boys made splendid
progress in their studies during the time they were employed in the office, one being awarded
the Underwood bronze medal and bar for typewriting at a net rate of fifty words a minute,
and the other, the Underwood bronze medal for typewriting at a net rate of forty words a
minute, as well as certificates for sight tests in typewriting. We hope to continue with the same
success in the future.
Sports Section.
I am pleased to say that our boys continue to take a deep interest in baseball, football,
and seasonable sports. Our grounds are gradually getting into shape and will in due course
be suitable in every respect.
Poultry and Rabbits.

number were killed by weasels and rats and over 400 died with disease, but in spite of these
handicaps the showing on the credit side is very creditable and will improve each year. Farm.

successor has not yet been appointed.
Medical Officer's Report.
The following is our medical officer's report covering the work for the year:—
" The health of the boys during the past year has been rather better than the previous
twelve months. There have been no new cases of rheumatism and heart involvement. There
has been, however, a rather striking incidence of acute appendicitis, with recovery in each
instance following operations. We have been quite free in the school from contagious diseases,
although one boy in hospital for another condition contracted scarlet fever while there, with an
uneventful recovery.    I regret to record one death from acute double pneumonia.
" Apart from the common run of lesser accidents, burns, abscesses, etc., the admissions to
hospital were as follows: Acute appendicitis, 6; crushed fingers, 1; anal abscess and fistula, 2;
suppurating cervical glands, 1; suppurative bursitis (prepatellar bursa), 1; extensive burns
(before admission to school), 1; tuberculous ulceration of leg, 1; pneumonia (death), 1;
gonorrhoea, 1; painful fibromyomata of both feet (excision), 1; tonsillectomy, 4; circumcision, 2.
" The following conditions were noted on examination of the sixty-two new boys admitted:
Enlarged tonsils and adenoids, 5; previous heart-disease, 1; impaired vision, 6; inguinal hernia, P 16 Industrial  School  for  Boys. 1925
1; hydrocele, 1; variococele, 1; undescended testicle, 1; phimosis, 3; scabies, 1;  flat feet, 7;
large burn, 1.
" I would again call your attention to the fact that almost 50 per cent, of the new boys
have never been vaccinated against smallpox.
"(Sgd.)    Stanley Paolin, M.D."
Entertainments, etc
Trip through Shelby's bakery; illustrated lecture on " Trip across Canada " by G. C. Hatt,
of Port Moody; St. Marks' concert party from Vancouver; Methodist concert party from Vancouver ; Baptist concert party from Vancouver; Salvation Army concert party from Vancouver;
Shelly's minstrel troupe; annual concert, opening of new auditorium; picture-shows, baseball
matches, etc.
AU of these entertainments helped to make life run more smoothly and made our boys feel
that they were not forgotten by the big world outside.
Donations, etc.
Radio set from the Rotary Club of Vancouver; 15 copies of book entitled " Peace Rive Joe "
from the author, J. P. Babcock, Esq.; $25 from the North-west Travellers' Association of Canada ;
50 pairs of Indian clubs from the Canadian Club; set of war memorial pictures from the Provincial Chapter, I.O.D.E.; Christmas gifts from the Nanaimo Kiwanis Club to boys from Nanaimo
