Morris, W. Lewis, and W. Jones, Messrs E. H. Davies, D. Ellis, J. Davies, and W. Taylor. THE BlGBEII GRADE SCHOOD. A depntation, headed by Mr Lloyd, draper, an1 Mr James, Ocean Offices, waited upon the Board and stated that they represented the feelings and opinions of parents of children attending the Higher Grade School, and wished to submit a memorial.- The Chairman as ;ed whether they represented the parents of the children or the science and art classes. NI r Doyd Both.—The Rev W. Morris asked how they came to represent the parents ? He was one of the parents, and he bad heard nothing about any meeting being called, or anything of the kind.-Mr Lloyd replied that they represented the greater portion of the parents -Mr James then read the memorial, which prayed that Mr George Jones, the present second master of the Higher Grade School, should be appointed head master in place of Mr Hogg, whose resignation had been received by the Board. Various reasons were set forth in the memorial and Mr Lloyd added at the close of Mr Jamea' reading of the document that the science and art classes ought to be started at once. The Clerk said t^at the Board had had the matter under con- e!dprati< n.—The Chairman replied that steps would The taken for carrying on the classes.-The Rev W. iMorris said as a parent he fully sympathised with :the memorial.—The deputation then withdrew.- Tre School Management Committee reported that they had received an applicatirn from Mr George Jones, assistant master at the Higher Grade School, for piomotion, find they recommended that he be appointed head master, the salaries f the teachers wf the Higher Grade School to be revised, or if the .Board did not agree to that, then that the appoint- ment of master at Tiealaw school be given to Mr George Jones. If, however, the Board appointed Jrlr Jones to the Higher Giade Scbco, then the committee recommended Mr Matthew Owen, Pont. 3ottyn, for the Treahw school—The Rev W. Lewis Stated that at th) committee meeting they felt they bad no right to deal finally with the matter because they h >d not advertised, but they "Wertj anxious that Mr Jones should have Trealaw Bchocl it he wet e not appointed to the other. Theirs -waa not so much a recommendation as a suggestion. -The Chairman I presume you bad the position ioi the science and ait classes in vi«w F The Rev "W. Morris Yes, snd Mr Jones' qualifications. His qualifications are biilliant. I think it wont.) be a pity to appoint anyone else.—The Chairman: ] propose that we confirm the views of the school inamagement committee and give the appointment to Mr Jones.—This was seconded by Mr J. Davies »nd unanimously agreed to.- The Rev W. Morris proposed that the salary of the head master of the Higher Grade bchool be £150, and the second mas. ter £ 100, and added that, of course, if Mr Jones' conduct was such as to desetve recognition in future that they should consider it again- Mr Taylor: Hie s>.)a<y will be lees than that of the ordina-y Bchoolmaster.—The Rev W. Morrs said that they were promoting one of their servants to a post of JE150 a year, which was far higher than the mini- mum salary At their other school.—The Chairman I think it will be equ <1 to the grant and all at Tre- alaw.-Mr Taylor And he has a prospect of being advanced ?—The Bev W. Morris: Yes,-The Bev W. Jones said it was very good pay for the assis- tant.-The Bev W. Morris efid that they had considered that the difference before between 970 per anputp and the amounnt of the head teachers ealary was too great considering that the qualifica- tions were 80 mear —Mr Jrnkins suggested that the assistant teachers' salary should be £ 90—Mr Ellis Yes, as we are advancing the second master at the expei se of the head master now.—The Chairman Suppose we adopt the suggestion and say 4.90.

The C bail man said the next question was Mr Tajlor's notice of motion ore the amalgamation of the two tScea—cterk and superintendent. —Mr Taylor aeKed if they would have time to finish the matter supposing they began it.— Mr Jenkins said it appealed to Lion to be a pity to keep those matters hanging over the heads of officers. He i thought they tagbt to finish them.—Mr Ho"d agreed, bit at the same time considered that if they began a discussion they ought to finish it. -The Chairman proposed thet the disenssion be ndj«-«:»edt*».d that they put it before the reports of the officers at the next meeting.—The Kev W. Murris seconded, and suggested that for the jnfoination «f I II'" Boaru, as he must admit hehim- aetf did ¡>4Jt kn w ex^tly what the duties of the Clerk were. U ey should have a return of all the coneepoadeBce with the Department, and, h others, say for the last two or three years, just to give then as idea uf the amount of correspondence clone. He wotdd like to know whether the Clerk fead been paid anything as solicitor, and if si how much, during the past five years. If they had a return of that kind he thought it woutd help them very mocn. They should also be informed what were the datirs of the Cle^k iu preparing the accounts. Ike Clerk said be thonKht it would be advisable al80 that ope or two mpmbereof the Board should votrrdowi) to his offiee at -Pontypridd for a day or two after-the Board each month.—The Bev W.
