BAURY (UJD.) SCHOOL BOARD. A meeting of this Board was held at; the Helton- road Schools on Monday afternoon. Mr. J. Lowdon presided, and there were also present—General Lee, Captain Davies, Rev. J. Price, Mr. G. Thomas, and Mr. W. H. Lewis (clerk). The report of the Attendance Officer, stated that since the holidays there had been 529 absentees. A number of children had not returned from their holidays, and the children of several families were detained from school by outbreaks of scarlet fever. Letters were read from Mr. Higman and Mr, Ewbank, stating that the attendance at the schools on the day the Barry Dock Regatta was held last year had been very small, they begged to suggest that the schools should close on the occa- sion of the regatta. Miss Llewellyn and the other female mistresses concurred in the request.—The Board decided to close the schools on Wednesday afternoon next. as the regatta VvVuuld not commence until after twelve o'clock. The Clerk read a letter from the Educational Department, dated 5th August, stating that under Sec. 31 of the Elementary Education Act, 1870, the number of members of the Board should be from seven to nine, and the number to be elected at the next election would accordingly be nine. The Clerk read a draft form compiled by the Attendance Officer, which stated that as but a few weeks remained before the examination it was desirous that the children should be regular in their attendance. Many were kept home for very slight causes, and this was unfair to the teachers. The form. which was unsigned, concluded by urging parents to send their children regularly to school.—The Chairman signed the form on behalf of the Board. A letter was read from Miss Llewellyn, a governess, stating that she was pleased to be able to state that she was sufficiently recovered in health to resume her' duties, and thanking the Board for their very kind consideration and in- dulgence. Mr. George Thomas presented a certificate for £ 300 for Mr. Richards on account of the Barry School. Mr. Thomas, in reply to questions, said the schoolroom and kitchen were well on, and he believed the building would be finished by the end of the building season. He also presented a cer- tificate for £ 300 for Mr. William Symmons on account of the Holton-road School, and for £, 51 9s. 8d. for Mr. David Davies for furniture. Messrs. Seward and Thomas applied for ;( 50 on account. Mr. Thomas said the sum due to Mr. Symmons was }!5911s. 7d., and a certificate for _C.300 was pre- sented by him. Captain Davies said that it was nearly time they changed their stationery order. It was decided to change the order at the end of six months.—The Chairman thought they should contract,—General Lee also thought it should be done by contract. I ELECTION OF XEW MEMHERS. The minutes of the last special meeting of the Board were read by the Clerk. At that meeting Mr. Lowdon presided, and there were present Rev. J. Price and Captain Davies.—It was proposed by the Chairman, and seconded by the Rev. J. Price, that Mr. John Rees, 4. Iddesleigh-street, Cadoxton, secretary of the Trades' Council, be elected to the vacancy on the Board caused by the retirement of Mr. O. Jenkins.—The Chairman pro- posed, seconded by Captain Davies, that Dr. D. Lloyd Edwards be elected as a member of that Board, in "place of Mr. Blaekmore, subject to the approval of the Education Department.—The Clerk said that Dr. Lloyd Edwards' appointment was an informal one, pending the decision with regard to Mr. Blaekmore.—This was all the business of public importance.
