The Revised Code, which came into operation on April 1, 1863, provided for a capitation grant of 12s. for each pupil between the ages of 6 and 12. Of this amount, 4S. was to be paid for a minimum of 200 attendances a year and 2s. 8d. each for success in annual examinations in reading, writing, and arithmetic. Schools were to be organised in six standards, for each of which the requirements were set out in the Code. Those for Standard I (age 6-7) were: to read narrative in monosyllables . . . to form on blackboard or slate from dictation, letters, capital and small manuscript, to form similarly from dictation figures up to 20, to name at sight figures up to 20, to add and subtract figures up to 10 orally from examples on the blackboard.
