LLA X TJl TS A N T RC ROOL BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Llantrisant School Board was held at the Llantrisant Parish Offices on Monday, Mr Rhys Davies (chairman) presiding. The members present were Dr Naunton Morgan (vice-chairman). Rev E. Stephens. Messrs Gomer Evans. W. E. Da- vies, G. T. Davies, with the clerk, Mr J. Co!enso Jones. The Clerk reported that after that day's pay- ments there would 00 a. balance of £ 559 in hand at the bank. Mr Gomer Evans considered them- selves more fortunate than the Pontypridd School Board. (Laughter). Mr W. T. Davies, clerk to the Governors of the Porth County School, wrote say'ng that owing to the bankruptcy of Mr Daniel Thomas, the Llantrisant School Baord's representative en the Governing body, there was a vacancy, and he asked the Board to elect a reprosentive in his stead. The Clerk sa.id it was first necessary to de- clare that Mr Thomas was not a member of the Board. This was done, and it was decided to appoint a representative on the Porth Govern- ing body at the next meeting. The report of the Inspector dealing with Gil- fach Evening School stated that the scholars were very industrious and the teaching was con- ducted with satisfactory results.. The Clerk submitted his estimate of the ex- penditure for the half-year ending March. 1900. and on the motion of Dr Morgan it was decided to issue a precept on the overseers of 91.200. This is equivalent to a rate of ninepence in the £ The Clerk submitted a record of attendances of the scholars at the various schools: At Beddau, 13 scholars had an. attendance of 94- per eent., and one 99 per cent; Miskin mixed, 27 above 69, and two 100 per cent.: Miskin in- fants, 10 above 94, and one 100 per cent; Ton- yrefail mixed, 35 above 96, and two 100; Ton- yrefail infants, 13 above 96 and one 99; Pen- rbiwfer, 8 above 96, amd two 100; Gilfaeh mixed. 23 above 96. and five 99; Gilfaeh in- fants, ten above 94 and four 99. It was decided to present books to all the children who had attended 96 and more per cent., and handsome medals in addition to those whose record shewed an attendance of 99 and 100 per cent. Messrs Owen, T. A. Arthur, and R. L. Jones, head-masters respectively of Gilfaoh, Tonyr- efail, and Miskin schools, wrote asking the Board to refund the ajocmnt of grant it had deducted from them. It appears that the Board some time ago passed a resolution to the effect that when the grant earned at the schools was satisfactory, the head-teachers would be paid one-fourth of such grant, but only one-fifth when it did not readi the proper standard. For the last school year the three head-masters had only been given one-fifth, and they now asked the Board to make up the one- fcurth, masmaeh as the fault in failing to ob- tain the htboa grant was not theirs. They contended that the schools had not been suffi- ciently staffed, aad that they had been worthy under difficulties owing to lack of teachers. They were supported in this view by Messrs Gomer Evans and W. B. Davies, the former moving a resolution that the difference be re- funded. The Board should first properly staff the sdxx#k, and if after that the teachers did not obtain satisfactory results they would bt justified in punishing them oy reducing their share of the grants. After a desultory discussion it was decided in the cases of Messrs Owen and Arthur to re- fund the differwioe.
