MAY DAY FESTIVALS. INTERESTING SCHOOL GATHERINGS I AT HAVERFORDWEST. On Monday afternoon interesting May Day func- tions were held at the St. Martin's Girls' School and the Barn Street Infants School. At the former school there was a tea party and prize distribution. This interesting little function has hitherto been held on St. David's Day, but owing to the absence of so many children as a result of the epidemics it was postponed until Monday last. The gathering was in the form of a May-day festival, each class selecting a Queen, and the necessary expense was defrayed by the children's own contributions. The Qneens" selected were Standard 1, Annie Griffiths; 2, Bessie Thornas; 3, Edith Evans; 4, Agnes Price 5, Estella Evans; 6 and 7, Mary Rees. Each Queen was tastefully dressed and crowned, and, attended by four maids of honour, formed a pro- cession which lacked nothing in picturesqaeness. The groups were afterwards photographed. After enjoying a hearty tea, which had been prepared by the teachers, aided by Miss Beatrice Russell, of High Street, the children dispersed for an hour, and on returning they rendered a programme of school songs and recitations in a very creditable manner. Attendance prizes were kindly given by Miss Ada Thomas, who, to the great regret of all, was unable to be personally present. In her absence, Miss Jane Phillips distributed the books to the winners, and Mrs Fred Lewis presented the County Council silver medals to the pupils who had not been absent once in five years. The winners of medals were:—Maud Price, Doris Pbillips, Elsie James and Martha Moore. The prizes were won by Maud Price (who completed 6 years unbroken attendance at Christmas 1909); Elsie James and Martha Moore (5 years); Edith Miles (4 years) Mabel Lewis and Mary Williams (3 years) Alice Davies, Ethel Williams, Blodwen James and Doris Price (2 years); Mary Louisa Miles. Estella Evans, Margaret Williams, Clara Gwyneth Williams, Alice Daye and Dorris James (1 year). A special prize given by the headmistress, Miss Ruth Evans, was also presented to Agnes Price, who bad completed four years unbroken attendance. This pupil was unfortunately absent through illness during one week in 1909. Votes of thanks terminated the proceedings. AT THE INFANTS' SCHOOL. The enterprise at the Barn Street Infants' School was only decided upon at almost the last moment and much credit is due to Mrs Tamlyn, the bead- mistress, and her staff for their excellent arrange- ments and the success achieved. The girls of the National School were admitted at a charge of one penny each and the proceeds, which amounted to 13s 7d, were handed over to the bazaar fund. The bazaar will probably take place in July next and the proceeds will go to purchase a piano for the girls' school. The performance on Monday, which lasted for an hour, was given entirely by the infants, and included a cowslip dance, action songs and recita- tions. The schoolroom was tastefully decorated and the children were also prettily adorned with flowers. The cowslip dance was a great success, and the May queen, Reppie Jenkins was attended by other children decorated in various flowers and repre- sented kings and queens such as the violet queen and primrose queen. The action songs, Hurrah for the Union Jack," Clumpety Shoon" (in which the children appeared as Dutch girls), and Tisty tosty" were all excellently performed. Reggie Saies and Fred Peters gave recitations in good style. Miss Lizzie Jones ably presided at the piano. The children aquitted themselves creditably throughout and it is intended shortly to repeat the performance and to extend an invitation to the children's parents. At Monday's performance, in addition to the school staff, Archdeacon Hilbers and Miss Parkinson were present and evinced the greatest interest in the proceedings.
