A BAD ATTENDANCE. I Father Lynch submitted the attendance returns for January, which showed that the average percentage of attendance was 87.4 in the boys' school and 81.5 in the girls. The School Attendance Officer (Mr Mills) reported that there were 67 girls away and about 50 boys. There were 36 cases of measles and chicken pox. He thought the doctor's attention ought to be called to this. There was an increasing number away every day. Nearly half the girls were away and the boys were getting worse and worse. It was decided that the attention of Dr Gold and Dr Harrison be called to the matter. STRIKE CHIPpiNGS. Mr Parry Do we pay the school cleaner the same as usual now the infants' school is closed ? The Correspondent (Mr H Vernon Smith) Oh, yes it is an annual sum. The Correspondent reported the receipt of a letter from Miss Fernie, of Stirling, who was appointed headmistress of the infants' school, and said he did not think there was any necessity to read it, as it was understood that Miss Fernie was not coming. Mr Hopkins said that was so. The Rector Hear, hear. We will take it as read. The Correspondent reported the receipt of forms from the Education Committee with reference to the resignations of the teachers, in which was provided a space for entering the cause of the teacher's. resignation. He read some of these causes, and said he presumed he would have to enter the cause under "any other reason," and state "strike." s The Chairman agreed.
