BISHOP TUTTLE SCHOOL
Tlie Tuttle School students as far as possible con
tinue their training during the summer months by
some kind of activity intended to increase their knowl
edge and strengthen their techniques for dealing with
people. This summer two of the students worked on a
sugar plantation in Florida. There they had a chance
to work with individuals and groups under conditions
vastly different from those met in ordinary communi
ties. Their experience proved their ability to handle
novel situations and showed what intelligent direction
could accomplish in this particular situation. Their
success paved the way for the permanent employment
of another Tuttle School graduate. Another of the
students worked in the Tuttle Commtiuity Center which
has a well organized program of summer activities. One
worked in the office of the Urban League in St. Louis
interviewing unemployed persons and assigning them to
positions relative to their abilities and training. Still
another spent a probationary i)eriod at St. Agnes Hos
pital where the benefits were mutual. This same student
attendc'd the Wellesley Conference of Church Workers;
the classes and various activities will increase her use
fulness as a well-trained church worker.
In accordance with a plan instituted last year for
providing varied and well supervised field work two of
the senior students have gone to Winston-Salem for
training in family case work and recreation and one
has gone to Philadelphia to study the Church’ organi
zation for Religious Education and Social Work. These
two cities offer well organized agencies both secular
and religious where the students will have opj)ortunity
to tost, through i)ractical experience, the theory learned
in the class room. The supervised field work will be
graded so as to increase in intensity and difficulty ac
cording to the personal development of the students.
The field work placements of the juniors are all
local. Two are working under the supervision of the
Raleigh Recreation Commission. Two are working at
the Bishop 'I’uttle Center and one is organizing and
directing j)lay activities for the children at St. Agnes
]ros))ital. All will help with the Well Baby Clinic
which is conducted jointly by the Hospital and the
Tuttle School. V. M. (J.
