LL AN TWIT FAIIDRE SCHOOL HOAHD ELECTION. To the Editor of the "Chronicle." Sir,—Your correspondent Ratepayer" in his criticism of the Board's policy has gone out of his way to malre disparaging remarks about my school. His charges amount to three:—(1) That my depart- ment has not made satisfactory progress (since the progress he would wish," I take it, amounts to that. (2) That it ia npt in a highly satisfactory condition, (3) That the grant per child is only about 18s." I believe any impartial person will decide that the first two are utterly false, when he has read Her Majesty's Inspector's Reports on my school and the increase in grant which I append:- Parchment lte[Jol'fs,-Treforest Boys'.—1880.—" Mr Phillips is likely to maintain the high efficiency which he found here." 1881. Mr Phillips has quite fulfilled the promise. The school has passed a highly satisfactory examina- tion." 1882. ''The results this year include Elementary Physiology and the level of attainments is generally higher." 1883. The school has easily obtained the mark "Good" under the New Code, having done well in all subjects." 1884. This school is a little under-staffed, but has very nearly reached the highest standard of general efficiency." 1885. This may now be described as an excellent school." Grants (previous to my advent), £ 80 Is; 18ft0, £ S3 18s 1881. £ 85 Ks; 18:S2, £ 101 15s; 1883, X102 15s 4d; 1884, .£101 Is Id; 1885, Xlll 4s 7d (be- sides Drawing Grant of X3 8s.) I may state that this increase has taken place, although twenty-eight Roman Catholic children left when their own school was opened. As to the statement that the grant per child was only about lss," I enclose a note from the Clerk of the School Board shewing that it is XI ls 5d. If your correspondent (and I have reasons to believe that he is Mr William Williams, Tydraw Farm, Llantwit Fardre, late attendance-officer), can dis- prove any or either of the facts which I have stated he is at liberty to do so in your next issue. I am reluctantly compelled to farword you this ex- planation, as "Ratepayers" remarks, if allowed to go unnoticed, would be likely—as I have no doubt they were intended—to injure me and the school under my charge. Yours, tVc., DAVID PHILLIPS. Headmaster of the Treforest Boys' Schocl. The note enclosed is as follows :—" I hereby certify that the Grant per head earned at Treforest School last year (including drawing, was £ 1 Is :d per head on the average attendance. H. S. DAVIES, Pontypridd. Clerk to the Board.' January 27th. 18G".
