Protest Against the Proposed Change- RATEPAYERS UP IN ARMS. On Monday evening a largely-attended meet- ing of the parents of the children attending thiJ Hafod Schools was held at Bethel Vestrv teTtaka into consideration what steps on-lit to be taken to prevent the children living in the Pontypridd portion of Hafod being expelled by the Ystradv- fodw^ Board on account of their requiring a por- tion of the buildings for a Pupil Teachers' School Rev J. Williams presided, and explained how the dilemma has arisen. The Rev T. P. Thomas. Hafod. who is a mem- ber of the Pontypridd School Board, gave a resume of the negotiations between the two Boards, and justified the action of his Board. He felt it was unreasonable to pay any money to the neighbouring Board without ctt.ing re- presentation at the same time. There were about 300 of their children in the Schools, and they had no share at all in the management. His Board were perfectly willing to pay their share when the Rhondda Board conceded their just demands. It was resolved that a deputation should wait upon the two Boards and give the views of the locality, which were decidedly against any change as contemplated hy the Rhondda Board The deputation appointed was the Revs John Williams and T. Davies,Mr Moses Jones was ap- pointed secretary of the movement. DEPUTATION TO THE PONTYPRIDD BOARD. The Revs J. Williams (I.), and T. Davies (B.), Hafod, waited upon the Pontypridd School Board on Tuesday to lay before that authority the views expressed at the public meeting. The deputation, in the name of the people of Hafod. entered a vigourous protest agaihst the proposed change, which would mean, they declared, the exclusion of 300 children belonging to the Ponty- pridd parish, from educational advantages. Hafod Schools being the only convenient school for them to attend. The parents felt very strongly en the matter. They daimed the right to have their children properly educated, and protested against any friction between twer neighbouring Boards being the means of depriv- ing 300 children from enjoying proper educa- tional advantages. The Chairman (Mr James Richards') assured the deputation that the children's education should not be allowed to suffer in any way in consequence of the dispute, and that the matter had already been under the consideration of the Board. The deputation now retired. No resolution was arrived at.
