SCHOOL BOARD.—The usual monthly meetingH of the School Board was held on Friday January,25th, at the Board School, Mr E. C. Evans presiding. There were also present:—the Rev D, M Davies, Messrs David Jones, J. Thomas, J. Ed- wards, T. Evans, S. Jones, and DavidJThomas (clerk). —It was resolved that Miss A. Jones, Rbydygelli, be appointed monitress for the Castell Flemish School. The Rev D. M. Davies gave notice that at the next meeting he would move a resolution making the school year co-terminous with that of the Inter- mediate School.—The Inspector's reports on the schools were read, and considered vary satisfac- tory- The reports were as follows: -Blaencaron School: This school is making very fair progress on the whole. The handwriting and figures deserve praise. The reading, mental arithmetic, and geography would probably have been in a more advanced state but for the backward condition of the school at the commencement of the year. The needlework is satisfactory, and the discipline is very good.-Castell Flemish School: This is a well conducted school, and the work, considering the difficulties that the master has to contend against, is creditable. It is hoped that some more effective aid will be given to the master than that supplied by a young and inexperienced monitress; otherwise it is feared that, notwithstanding his diligence, it will be hardly possible for him to maintain the school in its present satisfactory state.—Tregaron School (mixed): A sound,healthy tone pervades the school, which is well advanced in all the branches of instruction. The needlework is well taught. Infants: The infants are, on the whole, very fairly forward. The handwriting of the first class was excellent, and their reading deserved praise. The scholars in the second class were not so forward. The removal of the gallery in' the classroom is a great improvement.
