She was only 17 years of age when sae entered for this examination. The Gover- nors unanimously decided to award a special prize. 1- In considering the report Dr Thomas urged that they should consider the advisability of having a -more modern curriculum at the school. After some discussion it was resolved that the chairman, vice-chairman, and Miss Thomas, consider the matter, together with the head- master. It was decided to defer the appoint- ment of another head-mistress until the coin- mittee's report was submitted. j A committee consistiiig of the chairman, Mr W. W. Ilood, Dr Morris, and the Rev Mr James was appointed to arrange a date for the "Prize Day'' of the Porth Intermediate School, and Mrs Dr E. N.
