OELLIOAER SCHOOL GOVERNORS. Mr J. D. Thomas, J.P., Maesy- cwmmer, presided at a meeting of the Gelligaer Governors at Hengoed on Tuesday evening. The Chairman announced at the outset that Miss James, headmistress of the Hengoed Girls' School, was laid up with influenza, but was progressing. A letter was read from the Board of Education re the release of teachers from the Army-, and the Chairman explained that a return had been sent along and that they had already made application for certain releases. It was reported that a number of teachers had actually been released a-id resumed their duties at the school. The Chairman reminded the members that they deferred the question of the consideration of salaries to a speoial meeting, and he now asked them to fix the, day. It was decided to meet next Monday week, when the. whole question of salaries will be reviewed. The Chair- man said the Clerk would furnish information from various schools, and Mr R. W. Jones (headmaster Pengam School) would submit his list of teachers, Ac. Miss James had sent in a list showing the number of mistresses, their qualifications, time of appointment, salary when ap- pointed, and present salary. The Chairman also raised the point of the restoration of the section of Hengoed School (destroyed by fire some time ago), and of the extension to meet tne ,1.. bmiml imapatott— 't w- .8- due to the increase in the number of pupils. It was pointed out that there was overcrowding and inconvenience as shown by the fact, that the hostel had to be used as a school. The Chairman suggested communicating with the County Education Com- mittee to ascertain their opinion at least on the matter. The Rev. D. Leyshon Evans, C.C, Bargoed, thought they should not hurry in the matter. Mr Edward Richards, J.P., Ystrad Mynach explained that the Education Committee had decided to build a secondary school at Caerphilly, and was proposed to build a number of middle schools in the Gelligaer area.—At Trelewis, Bargoed, Ystrad Mynach, or Hengoed and Pontlottyn, and probably the Bargoed Higher Elementary School would be con- verted into a secondary school.—Mr Richards added he did not know how far these developments would take place.—Members did not entertain much hopes that the Education Com- mittee would agree to any extensions of the existing school but thought it well to know what was in contempla- tion. The Rev. D. Leyshon Evans did not tl ink that the Education Com- mittee (of which he is a member) were themselves quite clear on the matter yet. Col. H. M. Lindsay, C.B., re- marked that if they wrote to the Education Committee it would show at least that the governors were alert and taking an interest in the matter. The Rev. D. Leyshon Evans agreed on this, but predicted that the reply now would be wait and see.It was decided to write on the lines suggested. 811
