SWANSEA SCHOOL BOARD. THE TRUANT SCHOOL. *'A monthly meeting of this body was held at the Guildha;! on Wednesday, Mr YV. F. Richarda presidh)?. There were also preaentâMrs Higgin. son, the Revs. W. Williams, W. B. Williams. Dr. Davies, Bishop, Rosser, Naysmith, and Martin.âMr Cole, the local inspector of schooht, reported that out of 37 examinations of pupil teachers, four of them obtained nrst-claM and 20 second-class certificates, whilst 13 were un- classed. This was far from satisfactory.âIn con- nection with the report of the schools manage- ment committee, the Rev. W. Williams complained of the manner in which teachers were appcmted, saying that the ttppointmentd were virtually made by the school management committee, and not ? by the board. The committee recommended one person only, aud the board had nothing to do but appoint him :.or her. He (Mr WiHiaujs) would like to see three natnes submitted for considera- tion.âDr. Davies expressed a similar view, and Mr Bishop, who moved the adoption ef the report, signified his willingness to tali in with the saggesticn on future occasions.âMr Naysmith, in moving the adoption of the report of the schools' building committee, said that since the board entered into an arrangement with the Corporation for an exchange of aites on the Dyvetty nelJ. the latter had beeu compelled to give up some por- tion of their scheme, and it seemed probable that tLey would not make <t road up to the neld as anticipated. Therefore the Corporation wanted the Board to build on one side, so that at eome future time a road might be made. This, how. ever, would put the Board to considerable expense in purchasing gardens facing upon the neld; and the commit-tee, therefore, recommended, that in the event of the Corporaticn insisting upon thia new arrangement, the School Board should return to their original intention of building at the bottom of the Seld. The report was seconded by Dr. Davies and adopted.âThe special committee on truant schools recommended the purchase of Bonymaen House, and an acre of ground situated near Cwm, subject to the permission of the Homo Secretary being given to the erection thereon, of a truant school. It appeared that the house and grouuds beong to the Earl of Jersey and that his lordship is willing to dispose of them for k3CO. It is proposed to provide accommoda. tion for 20 children. The report waa adopted, and the board shortly afterwards adjourned. z-z
