Prize Day at Conway Boys' School. The annual distribution of prizes at the Boys' School took place on Thursday, when the Rev. J. W. Roberts, the Vicar, and Rev. J. Davies —representing the managers of the schools- made the presentations. The Vicar first pre- sented 70 certificates to the boys who had shown proficiency in Scripture, and compli- mented the school on the good report given by the Inspector. After this the three boys- who were placed in the Merit Class of the County Scholarship List—were awarded cert- ficates given by the County Council. The boys were David Griffiths (who also won a scholarship), Thomas Read and Alun Jones. ri Before distributing the prizes for attendance, the Chairman of Managers spoke to the boys at some length on the great importance of regular attendance at school, and highly praised the boys who received the watch and medals. These were Robert Hughes, Arthur Evans and William John Davies. In order to obtain the watch-prize, it is necessary that a boy must make hve successive years of un- broken attendance and for the medals, three years.
