The only business on the agenda was: "To consider the rescission of the fol- lowing resolution passed at a special meeting held on March V), 1916: 'En- listinont of teachers and postponemeht. It was resolved tJ¡:lC no appeal for post- ponement be made in the cases of the attested teachers, (,ther than Messrs L. M. Thomas and P. G. Jackson.' A prolonged and at time heated dis- cussion took place among the mem- bers. It appears that the two teachers above named have been medically re- jected. Mr. Brinley Reynolds, one of the other teachers at the Boys County School, joined some time ago, and there are three remaining of military age, two of whom have passed Class 1, and the other Class 2. The last named, Mr. Aubrey Roberts, was before the Tribunal a fortnight ago, when his case was adjourned pending a meeting of the School Governors. In the ordinary course, at least in Council Schools, the Board of Education make it a rule to retain the services of all teachers who do not pass Class 1 or A, and some of the Governors were in favour of that procedure on Monday afternoon. How- ever, it was eventually resolved that the resolution passed on March loth be rescinded, that Mr. Roberts' medical card be forwarded to the Board of Edu- cation, and that the Governors take no action whatever between the three teachers and the local Tribunal.
