CHURCH SCHOOL MANAGERS. THE TEACHING OF WELSH. A meeting of the Managers of Llandudno Church Schools was held on Tuesday evening, in the Church House Trinity Square. There were present the Rev. Ll. R. Hughes, M.A. (in the, chair), Mr Nathan Jones, Mr W Ellis Jones, and Miss Buckley (foundation managers), Mr McMasrfcer, and Mr W. H. Jones (representative managers). Mr J. E. Hornsby, Mr J. H. Stevens, Miss Barn ford. and Mrs Royle, tihe head teach- ers at the four schools of the parish. THE TEACHING OF WELSH. The main business of the meeting was to ap- point teachers to fill vacanies at St. Beuno and Bodafon. Two applications had been forward- ed by the Education Committee, but the Rector stated that two others had applied, but their applications had not been forwarded from the county offices. Mr McMaster said he was inclined to kick against suoh treatment, and it was pointed out that the committee may have withheld the ap- plications because the applicants could not speak Welsh. Mr McMaster said he noticed that there was always something in the papers about the teaching of Welsih. It was well that the chil- dren should receive some instruction, but was not so sure that it should be imperative. The Rector said the only school they had good Welsih was Bodafon, where the children could read and speak Welsh excellently. The two applications were then considered, one from Miss Leonora Brown, Kidderminster, and the other from Miss Davies, Penmachno. The latter only was capable of teaching Welsih. but the clualificatio-n-s of the first-named were much superior, and after some discussion it was resolved to .recommend the Education Committee to appoint her to St. Beuno subject to 'her health being satisfactory. It. was stated after the appointment had been made that the other two applicants were Miss Pearson, of Worcester (whose parents reside at Llandtudnoi) and Mias Moore, of Conway. It was proposed by Mr J. McMaster, and seconded by Mr W. Ellis Jones, that failing Miss Brown, the Education Committee be ask- ed to appoint Miss Pearson or Miss Moore, neither of whom it was started could teach Welsh. Mr W. H. Jones proposed hat Miss Davies, Penmachno, be appointed. In his opinion every encouragement should be given to the children to learn to speak and read Welsh. There were a great many Welsh children on the Orme who were likely to lose their language, and he would be sorry for that. The Rector replied that Mrs Royle was thoroughly qualified to teach Welsh, and did so for two hours a week, according to. regula- tions. It had to be admitted, however, that a great deal of time was wasted over the language on the Orme. In their Sunday School they found it impossible to get the chil- dren to read Welsh, because it was not spoken in their homes. Mr Nathan Jones said he agreed with every word spoken by Mr W. H. Jones, and seconded his .resolution. Mr McMaster said that on second thoughts he was inclined to take the same view. On a vote being taken Mr W. Ellis Jones and Miss Buckley voted in favour of the ori- ginal resolution, and Mr W. H. Jones and Mr Nathan Jones against. Mr McMaster did not vote. The Chairman gave hiis; volte in favour of the appointment of Miss Pearson or Miss Moore. It was also unanimously resolved to express dissatisfaction at the methods of the Educa- tion Committee in noit forwarding all the appli- cations for the managers to consider. THE HOLIDAYS. It was decided that the mid-summer holidays should commence on July 22ndl and continue for five weeks as usual. The only other business of interest was the reading of the religious inspection of the schools which are given fully in our columns.
