Fishguard and Goodwick Education Authority. MONTHLY MEETING. At a meeting of the Fishguard and Good- wick Group of County Council Elementary School Managers, held at the Fishguard Council Schools, over which Mr Walter L Williams,IC.C. (chairman), presided. There were present Messrs J C Bowen, T James, W James, and Francis A Davies, together with the headmasters of Fishguard and Henner Schools (Messrs 0 D Jones and E Anthony respectively), Miss Edwards (headmistress of the Fishguard Infants School), and the Depu- ty Clerk (Mr R E Williams). CLEANER'S SALARY. An application for an increase of salary as cleaner to Fishguard School had been recei- ved from Mr J S Lewis, but it was decided that it be not entertained, it being felt that the managers would not be justified in grant- ing the application without previously re- advertising the post. STAFF CHANGE. The Deputy Clerk read a letter from the Director of Education (Mr H E H James) an- nouncing that the Education Committee had decided to appoint Mr Morgan D Lake as a certificated assistant teacher at Henner school, and that he would take up his duties there on February ist. THE ATTENDANCE PROBLEM. Another letter received from the Director called special attention to the fact that the attendance registers had not been tested during two quarters of the last school year, and directed that, in default of the Managers attending to this matter, the Clerk should do so. THE COAL CONTROVERSEY. A further letter from the Director asked for particulars as to the probable amount of coal that would be required in both schools up to the end of March. It was decided that the attention of the Director be called to the resolution passed by the Managers at the last meeting, to which they were still awaiting a reply, and that it be pointed out that it was only the best steam coal that could be used iu the heating appa- ratus at Fishguard. TEACHERS' REPORTS. The monthly reports of the three head teachers were individually submitted and ap- proved. FURTHER STAFF CHANGES. Mr Anthony having informed the Managers that Miss Francis had accepted a situation under the Ebbw Vale Education Authority, it was agreed, on the proposition of Mr T James, seconded by Mr F A Davies, that in her place there be appointed a certificated female teacher proficient in needlework and singing, and that it be recemmended thatMiss Roblin be transferred to the infants school in order to make room for her.
