Prestatyn. School Board. The monthly meeting was held last Friday evening, when there were present :—Mr Goronwy U JODes (Chairman), Revs F Jewell (Vice-Chair- man) and 0 J Davies, and Messrs Peter Ellis, John Hughes (Clerk), E H Parry (School Attend- ance Officer), and G W Jones (Schoolmaster).- It was reported that Miss Kate Jones had resigned her post as assistant mistress, and as the appoint- ment of a successor was considered an urgency, ihe names of two candidates were submitted to the meeting. Dissatisfied apparently with this departure from the usual procedure of adve:t sing the vacancy, the Vice-Chairmaa left the meeting with the remark that his colleagues would doubt- less get through the business better without him. The other members accepted the Chairman's ex- planation of his action in the matter on the ground of urtfsncy, and Miss Lena Lloyd, Llan- gollen, was appointed to the vacant post at the same salary as that which Miss Jones was receiv- ine, i55 per annum.—The School Attendance Officer called attention to a number of cases of irregular attendance, and it was decided to issue warnings to the parents of the children in ques- tion that unless there was an immediate imDrove- ment in the attendances they would be proceeded against. —The following communication from Mr L J Roberts, H.M.I., was read :In common with others, the Prestatyn School Board will shortly come to an eud. Its career, if brief,has been by no means unfruitful or inglorious. I feel it my duty, as indeed it is a sincere pleasure to me, to write to express my unqualified apprecia- tion of the work done by your little Board during its short life. The Board, which came into exis- tence only fonr years ago, has revolutionised the state of education in Prestatyn. It has made vigorous and successful efforts to improve the attendance in the schools,with results thet it would be difficult to overestimate it has provided second- ary instruction for its pupil teachers by sending them as half-timers to the Rhyl County School and it has erected a fine new school, which it will hand down as a legacy to its successors. The marked progress which has been made is no doubt due to a very rge xtent to the zeal of Mr Goronwy Jones, your chairman, aided by the admirable manner with which Mr Hughes, your clerk, has discharged his duties. I take this opportunity of expressing to the members of the Board my warm appreciation of the cordial relations that have existed between us." The Clerk was instructed to draft a reply thanking Mr Roberts for his uniform kindness and encouragement.
