School Certificate

Here is a school certificate awarded to Samuel Rogers whose Band of Hope membership document was recently posted. Remarkably for the time, he was advanced a standard for subjects 7 to 17: Recitation, Geography, Singing from Rote, Grammar, Composition, History, Drill, Algebra, Shorthand, French and Gymnastics. Didn't young scholars fit a lot into their schooldays in 1892?
