136. Elizabeth Alice Tuckerman

A Successful Teacher.
Miss Elizabeth A. Tuckerman, daughter of Mr A. Tuckerman, J.P., has achieved some distinction in the scholastic world. As the result of a recent examination of pupil teachers she has gained a ' full scholarship,' which will entitle her to en ter the Hurlstone Training College. For the past four years Miss Tuckerman has been a pupil teacher at Richmond and Windsor, and will now receive 12 months education at the college free of charge. Only 15 scholarships were awarded, and for these 112 young ladies competed in December last. On leaving the college she will be eligible for an assistantship, with the prospects of a mistresship in a very short time. Miss Tuckerman is 22 years of age, and all her pupil teacher exams were passed with high marks. She studied under Mr. Broome, head master of the Windsor Superior Public-school. Naturally the school is proud of the distinction she has gained. We congratulate Miss Tuckerman on her brilliant pass, and hope that it is only the precursor of a successful and useful career as a teacher.
