YSTRAD MEURIG. SCHOOL BOARD.—A meeting of the above board was held on Tuesday evening week, the members present being Messrs John Lloyd (chairman), W. Bebb, W. Owen, and 8. Tregoning (clerk). The clerk reported that since the last meeting he had received the report of the Swyddffynon school. The amount earned per head was 19s 10d exclusive of the se -zing grant, and the excellent merit grant had again been obtained. The grant showed an increase of a little over Xi on last year. The following is the report:— "This school is in very good order and discipline, and is instructed with much zeal, intelligence, and success. The results of the examination, both in the elementary and in the two class subjects were highly satisfactory and especially the composition of the fifth and sixth standards. The needlework was satis- factory. The infants had been intelligently taught. As the pupil teacher has completed her time it is highly important, in order to keep the efficiency of the school, that an assistant teacher in addition to the candidate should be employed. Agnes Evans has passed fairly. "-The chairman expressed his pleasure at the report, and thought that it reflected great credit on their schoolmaster (Mr W. G. Summerhill). He hoped that the school would always continue in its present efficient condition.—The board next con- sidered the appointment, as recommended by the inspector in his report. The members were of opinion that it was necessary for this year at any rate to appoint one, and it was unanimously agreed that Miss Evans be appointed.—On Monday Messrs J. Lloyd and W. Owen attended the school, and dis- tributed prizes to the children for regular attendance. Mr Lloyd urged upon the children the necessity of attending school regularly and getting a good educa- tion, which was very important if they wished to make their way in the world. It was utterly im- possible for them to become good scholars unless they attended school regularly. He hoped to see a great many more earning prizes next year. He was pleased to hear that the boy David Jones who, of course, had the best prize, had not been absent from school for six years.—Mr Owen, in a few well chosen remarks, said how pleased he was to see how well the children had done at their examination, and complimented the children on their cleanliness and general good con- duct. He hoped to see all those who had not obtained a prize this year striving hard to obtain one next year.
