I NEWPORT SCHOOL BOARD. I Decision to Give Prizes this Year. I A monthly meeting of the members of this board was held at the offices, Newport, to-day, Mr A. J. Stevens, vice-chairman, presiding. There were also present Messrs D. Edwards, E. Thomas, S. Batchelor, M. Wheeler, J. W. Bebell. The Chairman mentioned that the corporation proposed that the board should take offices at the new town-hall, consisting of board room, waiting-room, and clerk's room, at JE50 per annum.âMr Edwards said that no un- dertaking was made by the preceding board to accept the offices intended to be built, but pro- posed,as the board were obliged to leave the present premises, that the offices be accepted temporarily, and on a six months' notice. Mr Thomas seconded the motion.âThe Chairman thought a temporary arrangement would be wise, as the new board-room was manifestly too small. There might be space enough for the members, but the reporters would be much inconvenienced, if not pressed out altogether. (A laugh.)âThe resolu- tion was carried, and the clerk was directed to write to the corporation asking whether they would accept the board as tenants under these conditions. The Taunton scheme was referred to in the minutes of the management committee for November last, and Mr Edwards proposed that minutes of the management committee for November last, and Mr Edwards proposed that one of the chief recommendations in the scheme ânamely, the giving of prizes and certificates, should be resumed by the board. Up to the present year prizes had been given. â The Chairman remarked that his experience in school work showed that to get the greatest v alue from such reward they should be made qualifying not competitive. Industrious children always would gain certain prizes whereas idle children, knowing that they could never attain to the number of marks or of attend- ances gained by the former class, would have no inducement to make up their attendances. Mr Wheeler said that the qualifying element was provided fcr by the distribution of certificates. There had been a loss of 1 per cent, this year on the attendances, and this meant j328 in Govern- ment grant-a sum which would so far make up the £4-0 or so which was usually expended.â Mr Batchelor seconded the motion, and it was agreed to. There was no other business of importance.
