PONTYPRIDD SCHOOL BOARD. The ordinary meeting of the Pontypridd School Board was held at the Board Room, Gelliwasted, on Tuesday. The members present were Mr James Richards (chairman), Rev Joshua Thomas (vice-chairman), Messrs W. M. Jones, Rev Ll. Ll. Davies, Messrs W. M. Jones, W. Jones-Powell, Thomas Thcmas, J. W. John, with the clerk, Mr D. M. Jones. P.C. Nicholls, Norton Bridge, was awarded five shillings for giving information which led to the conviction of a lad wiio broke several panes of glass at the Norton Bridge School. j IU Jones-Powell in going through the ac- counts for which cheques were drawn that day thought more time should be spent in going through the accounts. He noticed that In no case was any discount allowed. He al ways obtained it himself. The Clerk replied that it had never been given or even offered except when they paid cash in a month. The Clerk reported that before that day's payments there was an overdraft of P,3,976 r. 149 8d at the bank, and after that day's pay- ments there would be an overdraft of £ 5,278 as 8d. They were now working into the next ) half-year and nothing had yet been received. The overdraft on the loan account was now JE779 15s. The Chairman remarked that the Board must do its best to curtail the ex- penditure in the different schools. They should not go in for any new work. A letter was read from Mr L. D, Nicholl, Swansea, saying that Captain Vaughan Leigh would sell the free-hold of the land on which Pullgwaun School is built at 30 years purchase. The annual rent was jS32 8s 4d, 30 years pur- chase being £ 972 10s. The Chairman was of opinion that it would be beneficial to purchase the land—Mr Jones-Powell thought it was a very heavy price, and it would be better if they were not to do at present. In the neai future the Government would probably promote a measure enabling public bodies to purchase their freehold at reasonable terms. Mr J. W. John concurred and the purchase of the land was indefinitely postponed. The Clerk of Works reported that the cost of the new coal-house at Norton Bridge, which was prepared from plans, was JE80. This he characterised as a disgraceful waste of public money, inasmuch as if the building had been erected by day work it would only have cost JE30. Resignations were received and accepted from the following ex-P.T.'s:—Misses Jessie Mabel Jones, Spraggon, and Pollie Jenes, and from Mr David James Davies, an assistant-master at the Graig School, who had obtained a County Council scholarship. Applications for teachers were received from several of the head-teachers, but the clerk sta- ted that no replies had been received in re- sponse to the Board's advertisements. The matter was left over until the next meeting.
