GIRLS' SCHOOL STAFF. A letter was read from Miss Charlotte M Page, of Ledbury, applying for one or two months' training as a teacher in the girls' school. Miss Page has had some little training as a teacher, and is desirous of being appointed as an unpaid teacher for one or two months for the purpose of training. The managers decided to accept her on those terms. An application for the appointment of uncertificated assistant teacher in the girls' school to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna- tion of Mis Gibson, was received from Miss Edith Frances Ballinger, 19 years, of Hereford, and she was appointed at a commencing salary of 250 per annum, her duties to commence next Monday. REPAIRS AND RENOVATIONS. A letter was read from the County Education Committee stating that on Saturday, March 7 they would consider what repairs and renovations were required in the schools, and the managers were requested to see what was necessary niid inform the Committee. It was proposed to have all such work done during the Summer holidays, and this was the only period of the year when the question of repairs and renova- tions would be considered. The remaining business at the meeting had reference to the appointment of an assistant at the boys' school, arising out of the resignations of the assistants in connection with the strike, and a discussion which was introduced by the Rector on the question of the strike.
