LLANDUDNO NIGHT SCHOOLS. CLASSES TO BE HELD AT LLOYD STREET SCHOOLS. The Carnarvonshire Education Committee are anxious to develop and improve the nlight schools of the county, and with the view to obtaining best local advice as to the kind of classes required anid to securing the co-opera- t-ion of the local school managers they directed that in each centre, in the, county a general meeting of managers should be called to con- sider the requirements of thei school district in regard to eive,ning schools, and to report to' the Education Committee as to the subjects in which classes should be commenced, and the probable number of students which might be expected). The managers were also asked to recommend the most suitable school in the district for the holding of the classes. It was further desired that the managers of both classes of schools, provided and non-provided school be invited to take part in these delibera- tions. The meeting for the Llandludno area was held on Friday night, having been summoned by Mr D. W. Thomas, the head master of the Lloyd Street Council School. Mr W. H. Jones, the chairman of the Urban District Council, presiided. It was. explained by Mr Thomas that no class- should be begun unless (there were twenty students entered, and that unless 70 per cent, attended the class should be closed. The evening school at Llandudno last year was, however, so successful that 99.9 per e-ent of those entered attended. The Welsh class had to be dropped, however, because it fell below the; prescribed number. On the motion of Mr R. J. Williams it was decided to recommend that the s.chool be held at Lloyd Street, and that the ,subjects should include arithmetic and mensuration, English composition, shorthand, bookkeeping, and dressmaking. THE TEACHING OF WELSH. The question was then discussed as to whether there should be another attempt to get together a Welsh class, and after a long debate a motion to the effect that Welsh he included as a. subject was put and carried by a large majority, the Rector and Mr Conway voting against it, the former explaining that he sup- ported Mr Conway because he hardly thought the subject would be seriously taken up. On the motion of Mr Conway, ,seconded by Mr R. J. Williams, a resolution was unani- mously passed recommending the Education Committee, in the appointment of teachers for the evening classes, to consider the, claims of the teachers of non-provided schools as well as of those of the provided schools.
