THE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL. The Governors of the Bridgend Intermedi- ate School met on Monday afternoon, Alder- man T. J. Hughes presiding. Also present were Mrs. Powell. Messrs. George Han-is and Michael Davies, Bridcrend; Evan Griffiths,- Nantymoel; J. Roderick, NantyifyMon, and the Rev. Stephen Jones, Treos, with the clerk (Rev. Eynon Lewis), and the headmaster (Mr. John Rankin, B.A.). RECREATION GROUND. Mr. Michael Davies reported that the sub- committee appointed to consider the question of securing a field for recreation purposes had met Mr. W. Pawell. who agreed to let the Governors have a field near the school for the time being. Mr. Powell would communicate with the Governors further after consulting his superior landlord. OVERCROWDED SCHOOL. The Headmaster reported that the number of scholars on the rolls was 267—127 girls and 140 boys. Five old pupils who had finished their year's course and given notice to leave, now asked to be allowed to continue at the school for an- other term.—The Headmaster said that prac- tically all that could be promised these pupils was access to the school library and occa- sional words of advice as to their reading. Mr. George Harris thought the Governors might comply with this request. Rev. Stephen Jones: How can that be done having regard to the over-crowded state of the school at present? The Chairman said the question which Mr. Jones raised was the all-important one. The Governors originally fixed the limit of the number of scholars to be admitted at 250, and now the number was increased to 260. Through some cause or another the total on the rolls at present was 267, and the question, was whether the Governors should admit the old scholars, who had really finished their course, or allow an additiOIialfive applicants for admission to the school to commence their training. He thought the latter had prior claim, since they might be losing their only chance. The Headmaster: The only point is that in the lower forms there is no room, while in the higher forms there is. Mr. Harris oroposed that the scholars be allowed to continue at the school. The Chairman nointed out that the Govern- ors had fixed a limit, and in face of that the motion was out of order. After further discussion, the Governors de- cided not to grant the request of the old pupils, but the Chairman remarked that there would probably be no objection to their using the library. THREE YEARS" AGREEMENT. It was reported that two winners of en- trance scholarships had left the school before completing the three year's course in accord- ance with their parents' agreement with the Governors. The Chairman said there was a definite agreement upon which the students were al- lowoo to enter the school, but the agreement provided that where a satisfactory explana- tion was offered, the three years' attendance need not be insisted on. He proposed that the clerk write the parents inquiring what reasons they had to offer. Rev. Stephen Jones seconded, and the mo- tion was agreed5 to. Mr. Harris: Do you consider these agree- ments are really binding. Mr. Chairman? The Chairman I do, sir. SALARIES. Mr. D. Idioes Jones. B.Sc., science master, applied for an increase of salary, and a similar request was made by Mr. A. A. Chalrdon, as- sistant. master. Both applications were referred to the Finance Committee. PRIZE DAY. A committee was appointed: to make ar- rangements for the distribution of prizes, which will take place shortly before Xmias. The Governors agreed to vote towards the purchase of books.
