Bell, applying for the use of the schoolroom for band practice, and the Board decided to grant him permission on the usual terms.—A letter was also read from Messrs Saer and Wall, stating that they were desirous of starting evening classes to benefit the boys and youths of the town, which would save them from occupying their time in other useless pursuits. They thought that one large school would be more efficient and popular than two classes, so the writers had agreed to work together instead of keeping up two classes. They would either except a fixed salary as remuneration, or the fees and grant.—The members thought the subject needed consideration, and it was decided to adjourn the matter till the next meeting of the Board.—Requisitions were received from Messrs Griffiths and Saer and the Misses M. and S. Dolgarno, and were referred to Mr Willian Cooke.-Cheques were signed for salaries, and in favour of Mr D. Pryce and the Public Loan Board.
