Alma School Teacher George Hardy resigns in 1899

The Guardian, Charlottetown, July 5, 1899  page 7

The mid-summer examination of Alma School, Lot 3, took place on Tuesday 27th inst.  The attendance of parents and visitors was quite large.  The examination which was conducted by Chas A. Hardy, Esq. And Rev. A.D. McDonald was most satisfactory throughout, proving conclusively that good and faithful work had been done both by pupils and teacher.  The whole tone of the school, intellectual and moral is healthy and hopeful indicating on the art of the teacher not only a deep knowledge of child nature, but also the possession of those rare gifts and instincts which continue to make the successful teacher.  At the close of the examination short addresses were given by Messrs. John Riley, Thos. O’Brien. Jas. B. Mountain and by the examiner, all of whom expressed themselves as being well pleased with the progress made by the children and the general condition of the school. Mr. George Hardy has been in charge of the Alma School for the last three years and now resigns his position to enter upon the study of medicine.  It is needless to say that his resignation is accepted with deep regret that he carries with him the very best wishes of the whole community upon which his noble Christian life has left a powerful impress for good.
