PRESTATYN NATIONAL SCHOOLS. A very interesting function took place at the National School on Wednesday after- noon last week, when, on the invitation of the managers and teachers, several ladies and gentlemen assembled to witness the distribu- tion of prizes awarded to the scholars for regularity'of attendance during the past year; The room had been very tastefully and seasonably decorated with evergreens by the teachers and elder scholars. The Vicar occupied the chair, and was supported by the Revs. M. F. Wynne and A. Gray Jones, Messrs T. J. Scott and Nanney Williams, and Capt. Jones, Drakelow. Whilst the visitors were arriving the scholars sang a selection of National Airs, concluding with the Welsh National Anthem, Maggie Jones leading with the solo. Appropriate and encouraging speeches were made by the Vicar, Rev. M. F. Wynne, and Mr Scott. Mr Williams, the head teacher, in the course of his remarks, referred to the loss the school had sustained by the death of the late Vicar, and expressed a hope that the new Vicar would enjoy as happy associations with the school as did his predecessor. The speaker also expressed his gratitude to those ladies and gentlemen who assisted the teachers in securing prizes supplementary to those offered by the Education Committee. It is noteworthy of remark that Winnie Kelly, one of the prize-winners, has made perfect attendances for five years, and was presented with a bronze medal, whilst Phoebe Glass has made perfect attendances for two years and 10 months. As the scholars filed out each child was presented with a small parcel containing an orange, nuts, svveets, and biscuits, which had been sent by a few ladies and gentlemen in- terested in the school. The National Anthem terminated a very successful and interesting meeting. II Prizes for perfect attendance were awarded to: Gresley Jones, Winnie Kelly, Lillian Massey, and Phoebe Glass. Supplementary awards were secured by Matthew Hughes, G. Hughes, E. Saunders, S. Massey, Arthur Jones, C. Parnell, Elsie Smith, W. Hughes, B. Beer, A. Jones, Marjorie Smith, Gladys Parnell, and Daisy Bennett. The prizes awarded for attention to studies, etc., will be presented early in the new year.
