Profile of students, 1915


A summary of the children enrolled on 9 August 1915, as prepared by the Head of School, Thomas Dobson, is as follows:


James Murphy (15 years, 5 months) 1st July '15. Head of School. Ardently desires a musical education, is industrious in his music studies and practices intelligently. He is not exactly stirred to effort in other studies than music but, for all that, does a fair thing and is obedient to constituted authority. He has partial sight.


Geoffrey Robinson (13 years, 11 mo) 1st July '15. A bright intelligent boy, healthy and skilful and a hard worker in and out of school. He has a slight impediment in his speech which because of his very ardent temperament it is difficult to eradicate. He is undersized but very courageous. He is quite blind.


216


Eileen Byrne (14 years, 6 mo) 1st July '15. A rather delicate girl, well grown and quietly intelligent and knows more than she appears to because of her retiring nature. She sings alto in the Junior Choir and is said by the Director to be a promising violin student. She has but a glimmer of sight.


George Airton (12 years) 1 July 1915. A totally blind well-developed, healthy boy. He is well-conducted and intelligent and has fair musical ability. He came from the School for the Blind in York, England.


George Findlay (9 years, 7 mo) 1st July '15. A particularly bright and clever lad with good musical ability and a capacity for 'doing things' above that of the ordinary blind child. He is totally blind.


John Byrne (10 years, 1 mo) 1st July '15. A partially sighted well set up boy who is quiet and undemonstrative but is said to be a promising scholar. He was promoted last year as he had done better than the others in the IV Grade which is under Miss Aston. He has just begun to learn the violin and the Director speaks well of him.


Lily Winters (14 years, 9 mo) 1st July '15. A partially sighted well-conditioned girl who does mechanical work well but who, because of a speech impediment and a rather sullen temper learns somewhat slowly. She was miserable in body when she first came to the Institute but has steadily improved physically. A good mechanical worker.


Edith Peachey (15 years, 8mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted well disposed girl who is not at all keen mentally. She has a very motherly and kind way with the other children. She may be said to be feeble minded almost.


Vera Vincent (12 years) 1st July '15. An intelligent child with much musical ability. Her Hibernian temperament makes her at times slightly difficult to get on with. She lives in an atmosphere of adulation when among her relatives and is not altogether benefited thereby. She is totally blind.


William Blackwell (19 years, 10 mo) 1st July '15. A mentally deficient youth who was left untrained in his home till over 16 years and one whom it is not now possible to teach. He can read a little but does not grasp what he reads. It is a problem to know what to do with him. He plays in the Orchestra by ear but unintelligently. A nervous affliction makes him a most trying scholar.


Frederick Sutcliffe (15 years, 1mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted intelligent boy who has got on well since his enrolment here. He plays the flute in the Orchestra and the Director says that he shows marked ability. An obedient boy, much improved in his manners since inmates Morton, Herberte and Ward were expelled.


William Monahan (15 years, 1mo) 1st July '15. An undersized fairly intelligent boy who has partial sight, can learn but who is not quite as industrious as he should be.


Inez Munro (17 years, 1mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted girl who had been much neglected educationally before coming to the Institute, she was four years away from school just prior to her enrolment. She has done well considering but is cut out to be a hand worker beyond and above anything else.


Josephine Wilkham (16 years, 6 mo) 1st July '15. A totally blind delicate girl who left the Institute last month having developed epilepsy in a bad form. Her deafness was always much against her as a scholar. Her case is a particularly sad one.


Otto Redenbach (15 years) 1st July 1915. A highly strung but very ill-developed boy physically. He has strong mentality but so little physical power that little can be done with him. At 15 years he is about the size of a normal boy of 9. He underwent an operation for appendicitis at


217

the Alfred Hospital some time ago which to the surprise of everyone who knew him he survived and came out of well. Quite blind.


Aubrey Armstrong (13 years, 1mo) 1st July '15. A new scholar who was enrolled on 1st June last. He is partly sighted and intelligent but has had no teaching of an effective nature prior to his enrolment here and though not ill-disposed is inclined to act as a freelance unless sharply pulled up at times. He has been corporally punished once since he came here.


Doris Barllie (14 yrs, 9ms) 1st July '15. A nice mannered soft yielding, completely blind girl. She is an only child and her doting parents made a baby of her till she was nearly fourteen with the inevitable result - she is hard to teach now because the natural and acquired slackness is only with difficulty overcome. She sings well and is decidedly musical.


Mollie Miller (11yrs, 7mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted babyish girl whose widowed mother adopts so foolish a course with her that she (the girl) is querulous and troublesome. Till this year she attended school very irregularly but in this respect has shown improvement under pressure. She spends the week ends at home in Richmond. She is absent today.


Gladys McKenzie (19yrs, 8mo) 1st July '15. A completely blind helpless girl who is almost incapable of any mental or physical development. She sits in class and does a little day by day but scarcely makes any progress. She is amiable and well conducted.


Nellie Wills (16yrs, 4mo) 1st July 1915. A partly sighted feeble minded girl who learns a little at the cost of infinite pains exerted by her teacher. She has improved in physique since coming here but is very undersized. She may develop sufficiently to become an industrial worker. She is a good girl.


Grace Anderson (18yrs, 9mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted, physically powerful, mental weakling who learns very slowly indeed. She is well conducted but extremely dull. It is a problem what her future will be. Industrialism appears to be the only resource for her and that at present seems to be doubtful. She came here quite untaught.


Frederick Moore (17yrs, 3mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted, abnormally stout youth who weighs just on 13 stone and who is certainly a mental weakling. He is a very amiable youth and was enrolled on the 13th of May last absolutely untaught and untutored and presents very differently from an educated point of view. He has a speech impediment among his other shortages.


Alfred Coon (9yrs, 10mo) 1st July '15. An intellectually keen lad who has not been allowed to do anything for himself with the result that all manual work is to him difficult. He does fairly well in other subjects but Miss Bryan has had the greatest difficulty in teaching him to write and today he is utterly unreliable in this accomplishment. He is one of the two day scholars of the Institute. He is musical.


Alexander Byrne (8yrs, 5mo) 1st July '15. A bright partly sighted lad who learns quickly. He is a high spirited lad who needs fairly strict treatment. His sight seems to have improved since his admission to this Institution. He has been away since 15th July last as a patient in the Homeopathic Hospital suffering from pneumonia. He likes music.


Norman Rees (8yrs, 11mo) 1st July '15. A completely blind, highly intelligent lad who though only enrolled on 11th Feb last can write Braille letters (with skill and speed) to his mother. He is undersized but sturdy and all his school work is a delight to him. He is musical. A most promising pupil.


Reginald Hill (7yrs, 9mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted over-strung little London boy who was enrolled on 31st March last. He is intelligent if he could be kept still at times would be a very satisfactory pupil. He is musical.


218


Keith Davis (6yrs, 7mo) 1st July '15. The baby of the school and an intelligent and very promising scholar. He has been away since the 15th July suffering from Bronchitis.


Isabella Redenbach (8yrs, 7mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted, intelligent and vimful lass who seems much stronger physically than her brother Otto. She is getting on well. Her speaking voice has a disagreeable nasal tone which seems to be a family characteristic. She can sing well for a little girl.


Paul Edwards (10yrs, 6mo) 1st July '15. A blind boy with just a glimmer of sight who is abnormally developed through contact with many adults. He has improved wonderfully since his enrolment here on 11th July last. Having some physical weakness on his left side affecting his arm and leg he has much to contend with. At present he is among the 'hard to teach' division but Miss Bryan is doing fine work with a confessedly hard subject.


Ernest Kayes (11yrs, 1mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted lad who has been built up here from a state of idiocy to a dull witted but slowly progressive scholar. A vein of obstinacy which used to trouble him has been eliminated by Miss Bryan's tact and patience.


Jean Soutar (8yrs, 11mo). A partly sighted dull and self indulgent girl who has an almost useless pair of hands. She learns slowly and gives little or no encouragement as yet to her teacher Miss Bryan.


Elsie Sharp (7yrs, 4mo) 1st July '15. The baby girl of the school. She is rather delicate but is not a dull child. As yet she is rather peevish though improving in this respect.


Daniel Mansfield (15yrs, 7mo) 1st July '15. A partly sighted strongly built youth from Nazareth House, Ballarat, who has had no tuition previous to his enrolment here on 19th July (last month). As he has done much manual work his hands (at his age) have been to some extent unfitted to learn Braille which is unfair to us and to him. He should have been sent here earlier. He is obedient and though awkward in his ways an intelligent boy. Miss Aston speaks well of him.
