In spite of all our strenuous and continous efforts during the past two years, we have not been able to make any significant improvement. The first step in the direction is that the School should have a building of its own, which can never be secured unless the wealthy citizens of Bombay come forward and help the institution without any distinction of caste or creed, clime or country. A school building will certainly place us in a position to augment the usefulness of the institution by utilizing the amount of rent which we have now to pay for its further development. As for the work done by this institution during the year 1889-90, we shall allow the general remarks in the report of the Deputy Educational Inspector, submitted by him on the 4th March, 1890, to the Educational Inspector, Central Division, to speak for themselves.
" General remarks:—The present School building is airy, well lighted and commodious. The discipline of pupils is satisfactory, and the registers and records are neatly and correctly kept. The teaching staff is competent and adequate. I was much pleased with the needlework of the girls, and the gymnastic performances of the boys. The Schools have, I am glad to report, kept up their efficiency in every way, and Mr. Haeem, the Secretary of the Committee, deserves great credit for his kind and able supervision.

Out of 47 pupils (11 girls and 36 boys) of the Anglo-Vernacular Branch presented, 43 have passed in all heads. The percentage of successful students is therefore 91, which is far above the percentage of previous years. This satisfactory result is partly due to the introduction of small scholarships, and partly to the exertions of the teaching staff, and it is evident that the small stipends given to the scholars of the institution have proved to be a source of great impetus to study among both the boys and girls, and the institution is consequently in great need of scholarships. It is also shown by the mark lists attached to the report, that of the 11 girls of the Anglo-Vernacular Branch who were presented for examination, 9 passed in the First Class, 1 in the Second, and 1 in the Third. This cannot but indicate that the inherent faculties and talents of
