THE GELLIGAER SCHOOL I MANAGERS. -THE ANNUAL MEETING The annual meeting of the managers of the Gelligaer group of schools was hold at Hengoed on Monday, at which there were present: Messrs Sydney Jones (chairman), Bsn Hughes (vice- chairman), J. Jones (Fochriw), John Edwards, John Jones (Bargoed), H. Brown, D. Davies, L. Edwards, J. H. Charles, Mrs Davies, Aid.W.Williams, J.P., Rev D. Leyshon Evans, Harri Edwards, with Mr Frank T. James, clerk Mr 0. J. Samuel, deputy clerk Mr Bryn Davies, primary inspector Mr D Pagh Jones, county architect, and the attendance officers. Mr Sydney Jones said that being the annual meeting, he had great pleasure in moving that Councillor Hughes, last year's vice-chairman, be elected to the chair for the ensuing year.-Tiiis was seconded and adopted unanimously. On taking his seat, Mr Hughes thanked the managers for the honour thus conferred cpon him. He did not expect, to be able to fulfil the duties in the same efficient and re- markable manner as their late chair- man had done, but he hoped that each would give him the same ready sup- port as had been accorded his prede- cessor. He hoped that during his term of office peace would be deelared. It was a very irying time for all, but they hoped that the future would be much better. They were all aware of the enormous loss which was now being sustained by the iadifferent at- tendance at Bchools. If the ratepayers J generally only realised this loss he thought that the public generally would recognise the position and co- operate to minimise that loss. He thought that no effort or expense should be spared for the successful prosecution of this work'of attendance of children at school. He suggested that the Board of Education should take up the matter with the War Office in the case of the children of soldiers, as in many instances an iujustice was being done the children by the mothers during their absence, on active service, of the fathers. He moved a hearty vote of thanks to I Councillor Sydney Jones for his ser. vices during the put year.—Rev D. Leyahon Evans seconded and the vote I was carried. Mr Jones, in acknowledging the vote, said he had endeavoured to carry ont his duties as chairman to the beat of his ability. He was afraid, how- ever, that one fault of his was a tendency to rush the business of the meeting but they all realised that owing to a change in the train times, this could not be avoided when the I convenience of all the managers was considered. He fully endorsed ali that Mr Hughes had said regaiding the attendance problem. The question of the appointment of vice-chairman was next considered.— Mrs Davies moved the selection of the Rev D. Leyshon Evans, but that gentleman declined the position.—»Mr Sydney Jones moved the appointment of Mr J. H. Charles. He did not do soin opposition to Mr Leyshon Evans, bat as a matter of recognition for his regular attendance for Bedlinog,- This was seconded by Mr J. Jones .(Baegeed) and carried, Mr Charles thanking the members for the honour thus conferred upon him.
