The total school accommodation provided in the parish, including voluntary efficient schools, is 5,128 the accommodation provided and maintained by the School Board being 4,395. The whole of the schools and sites arc freehold property, and the report It will be pleasing to the board, and also a pleasure to the ratepayers, to know that sufficient school accommodation has now been provided for the parish of Llanwonno," the only matters of importance in respect to accommodation being the necessary alterations at Porth Boys' School. During the existence of the present board the following schools have been completed, viz.: Porth Infants' to accommodate 204; ditto girls, 246; and Penrhiwceiber to accommo- dato 312, an addition of 762; while Miskin and Newtown Schools, Mountain Ash, have been taken over from their managers.the former by purchase at j62,050, and the latter rented at S45 a year until the board considers it advisable to purchase it.
