A DOUBTFUL PROPOSAL. A sub-committee of Welshpool County School Governors have been set the peculiar task of trying to get behind the Interme- diate Education Scheme. The discontinuance of a certain private seminary for infant girls has brought a suggestion from the Head Mistress of the County School to establish a preparatory class for these children at her school. Mr Addie, the Chairman of the Governors, hints that there are some parental objections to children attending the elemen- tary schools in Welshpool ? What are t,hese objections ? There are parents we know who prefer to place their children at a pri- vate school, and, of course, pay for the preference. Fees, we take it, would be charged for instruction at this proposed pre- paratory class in Welshpool, but if addi- tional buildings were required for its accommodation, the cost, we suppose, would become a public charge. Would that be a fair charge under the particular circum- stances ? The proposal, however, collides with the scheme which fixes the minimum age of entrance to the County Schools at eleven years. If there be a demand in Welshpool for this preparatory class, then there is a good opportunity for the establish- ment of a private school. Welshpool pos- sesses an excellent Grammar School for boys. Is there not room for a similar institution for girls ?
