It seems evident that the New Zealand Department or Education is giving some emphasis to the subject of Character-Training. The 1928 Syllabus of Instruction for Primary Schools, which came into force on the 1st. February 1929 includes "Character-Tralnlng" as a subject of instruction, and it receives pride of place by being first on the list. The previous complete revision of the Syllabus for Primary Schools as made in 1919. In that syllabus the subject of instruction were grouped under six general headings, the fifth one of which was "Man and Society" and included "Moral Instruction." Both the change in title and the chan place are significant of emphasis on the subject.
