FINANCIAL The Clerk presented tin-, financial statement as follows:—In account -with the overseers: The overseers owe us on a precent drawn on the 2'Stii March ;;nd due OR TLV- 1st May, none of which has been paid.

Against that there was XI paid by my sell ior exercise books sold to the children fee grant, £62 2s td, leaving a total balance of In reply to a question, the Clerk said that he undt-i stood the overseers made rates in May and October. The Chairman They haven't had much time u yet. i he Clerk Mr Thomas told me last year that the overseers would be in a position to pay about June or November. I think we must wa, 't till June. Mr Rowland What's intended to be done with regard to the debt owing to the ti/oasurer ? Tbo Chairman We shall have to do the same as usual. We shall have to overdraw until we get the money from the overseers. Mr Wallace Meanwhile we are paving in- terest to the bank ? The Chairman Yes. The Clerk: We are always bound to do that uni, we can have a standing balance in our' favour. ,L! Chairman We had a standing balance in our favour fox many years, but some of the rate- pzi) ers kicked against the money lying idle. The Clerk We are like some tradesmen who ■can only live from hand to mouth. I', Mr Rowlands It would be better far for us to draw interest than pay interest. The Chairman They won't give as interest. That's the worst of it. Mr Rowland proposed that the account be approved and cheques drawn. Frith r Ryan seconded, and the proposition was agreed to. REWARDING THE CHILDREN. Mr .Tones said that in taking upon himself the responsibility of moving a resolution to the effect tLü ui-iangemeitfs be Uia,:e for giving the Ciiiidieii a treat, he might say that there was a pivctd; ut for it. During the existence of the last Board such extraordinary results were ^•VJ1 that the members resolved ibat the children, who had been parties to bringing about tL'se grand results should be encouraged in a substantial manner, and they decided, after a food deal of consideration, that they would give ooks in the higher departments and toys in the infant department. On that occasion the head teachers were consulted, and as the result of two or three entertainments a fair sum of money was realised,the balance being voted out of the funds. Last year there was not the slightest doubt that the results had been extremely satisfactory, the three departments having gained the highest merit grant possible without the deduction of a single penny. Under those circumstances he was inclined to think that the efforts of the children should be recognised and rewarded, and he begged to propose that they confer with the head t, achers on the matter. The Chairman said they were not establishing a precedent, as the late Board and previous Boards had acted in the manner suggested. Mr Rowland On the last occasion only books were given, I think. Air J ones Books and toys. The Chairman We have given certificates before now, but toys are best for the infants. The Vice-Chairman Do you give prizes to all the children ? Mr Jones No only to those who have made a certain number of attendances. Mr Waliace Where do you draw the line ? I Mr Jones: At 75 per cent. We allow them one quarter out of the four. If they don't make 75 per cent they get no prize. Mr Parsons thought it was rather late in the day to reward the scholars for the work of the past year He agreed that it should be done for the corning year. Mr Jones said that was what be meant. Mr Rowland seconded the proposition, which was unanimously agreed to. This was all the business.
