From John I. Beare, Esq., M.A., Regius Professor of Greek, Dublin University
Trinity College, Dublin, 11th November 1906 scored out and 17th December 1908

     I have much pleasure in certifying that I knew Mr. T. J. Beare for some twelve months personally, and for a longer period by reputation in Trinity College.  He was a resident student in college for upwards of two years, during which time he highly distinguished himself in a large number of the most various subjects.  In 1899 he obtained the Ekenhead Scholarship in Physics and Chemist - Practical and Theoretical - and concurrently he obtained the Berkeley Gold Medal in Greek, the special subject of examination being the De Legibus of Plato.  This medal is, perhaps, the most important distinction awarded for Greek Scholarship in the University of Dublin.  As his examiner, I was struck by the excellence of his style of translation and the ability with which he dealt with questions of Philosophy.  He attended my lectures in Classical Composition, and in that subject proved himself a very promising and capable scholar.  He twice won the first Vice-Chancellor's Prize for Latgin Essay. His character is unimpeachable and of the highest order.  He possesses a firmness of manner which, coupled with his tact, and varied knowledge and great experience as a teacher, should render him excellently qualified for the work of an (illegible) is sure to gain him eminence in the profession which he has chosen.  Though his surname is the same as mine he is not related to me.

Foundation  The School was founded as a Private Boarding School for Girls in the year 1864 by Madame Reighley de Mailly.  In 1876 Mme. de Mailly retired, and the school was continued by Miss C. Reilly and Miss  Williams.  Miss Williams retired in 1912.  Miss C. Reilly carried on the School until her death in 1927, when the present principal (Miss Robinson), who was then Headmistress, took it over.  The Jubilee of the School was celebrated in June 1914 and the Diamond Jubilee in 1924.

Aim  The aim of the School is to fit girls, by means of a sound education, to take their proper place as good citizens in the world in which they live; to prepare all for home life, and to enable those who are suited for a professional career to equip themselves for it.
     The School follows modern educational ideals, the aim being to develop the character, intellect and physical well-being of the girl; and to promote resource, initiative and self-control by a judicious freedom and methods of self-government.

Education  The work of the School is carried on chiefly on the lines of the Cambridge University Local Examinations; but public Examinations are not insisted on, the powers of each pupil being carefully watched and no undue strain imposed.
     Brilliant successes, including gold and silver medals, have been gained by past and present pupils at Trinity College, Dublin; The Royal Irish Academy of Music; the Feis Ceoil, Dublin; and the Cambridge University Local Examinations.
     The regular course of study includes Scripture, English, Latin, French, Arithmetic, Mathematics, Elementary Science, Music and Part-Singing.
     The School year is divided into three terms of about 12 weeks each.  Lessons are arranged to admit of open-air exercise during the most suitable hours of the day.

Health  The health of the girls is considered to be of the first importance, and is the particular care of Miss Robinson and a Lady Matron.
     The half-hour before bedtime is spent in the drawing room.  On Saturday and Thursday evenings there is dancing.

Games  Lacrosse and Hockey are played in the two winter terms.  Cricket, Tennis and Swimming in the summer.
     The games are under the direction of a fully qualified Games Mistress.  Wherever necessary, Remedial Exercises are prescribed and given by her.
     The School has the advantage of being placed amid beautiful surroundings, enjoying sea and mountain air.  The Houses have pleasant Gardens, good Croquet and Tennis Grounds, and a Field for Hockey.  Though not exposed to the sea front, the School is within five minutes' walk of the beach, and the sea-bathing is excellent.
     The climate of Bray is exceptionally good.

(Keep the Home Fires Burning)
Words by Lena Gilbert and Music by Ivor Novello

Keep the Home Fires Burning,
While your hearts are yearning.
Though your lads are far away
They dream of home.
There's a silver lining
Through the dark clouds shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out
Till the boys come home
