Carnarvon County Governing…


Carnarvon County Governing Body. LLANDUDNO AND ITS SCHOOL. A meeting of the Carnarvonshire County Gov- erning Hody under the Intermediate Education Scheme, took place on Tuesday, December loth, under the presidency of the Chairman (Mr D. P. Williams), when Mr Richard Conway moved that 14 Llon the Board should give its consent to an application by the Local Governing Hody of Conway-cum- Llandudno to have their School opened on tempor- ary premises at Llandudno. Mr Issard Davies said that he should certainly object to the School being permanently erected at Llandudno. His recollection, as a member of the Joint Education Committee, was that it was intended to open the school at Conway, or the neighbourhood. Mr U. rt. uaroisnire, as L-nairman or lne Conwav-cum Llandududno Local Governing Body, said that the Committee's decision had not been come to hastily. The reason why Llandudno j was selected was because the town had risen 1 nobly to the occasion, and, while he believed that Llandudno would be inconvenient as the perma- nent locale of the School, he was also afraid that, unless this application was entertained, there would be inseparable barriers in the way of building a School elsewhere in the District. A deputation from Pentn tenmawr, consisting of the Rev D. P. D ivies, Mr and Mrs Kneeshaw, and Dr Hughes, attended to object to the location of the School at Llandudno, unless the Local Governors were willing to grant scholarships to children from that neighbourhood at the Bangor School, as being the most convenient. Principal Reichel, who was a member of the Joint Education Committee, said that the Com- mittee considered that the the School was exist- ing at Conway or near Deganwy. If located at Llandudno, then they certainly thought that Pen- maenmawr should be out of the District. Mr John Davies seconded Mr Conway's pro- posal, while, as an amendment, Mr C. H. Darbi- shire moved that the application be not granted unless the Local Governing Body adopted a resolution making the scholarships available either at Llandudno or Bangor, at the desire of the parents. Dr Lioyd seconded. After much discussion Mr Conway withdrew his motion in favor of the amendment, which was unanimously agreed to. A Committee was appointed to inspect the p!ans of ttil- Llandudno School premises, and four members weie appjinleJ to Governing Body in the selection of a headmaster. A communication was received from the associ- ation of intermediate Headmasters, asking that represetatives of their body should be permitted to attend on the County Body in a consultative capacity and, on the motion of Mr Greaves, it was decided to allow a headmaster and head- mistress to attend.
