Farquhar) reported that there was a balance of £ 111 9s. Sd. in the bank.—Mr. Whitney, in accord- ance with uotice, moved a revision of the present bye-laws regulating school atendauce, stating that he thought the children should be able to leave school after having passed the fourth standard, instead of the fifth, as at present. It would remove a pressing injustice to many poor parents.— Dr Leighton moved that effect be given to the recommendation of the Grunrdiana that any child that shall have obtained a certificate of 300 attend- ances in not more than two schools during each year for five preceding years, whether consecutive or not, shall be entitled to the same exemption from school attendance as is prescribed in the bye law for chil- dren who have passed the 4th Standard. The Chairman seconded.-Both resolutions were car- ried.—Calls at 3d. in the £ were issued to the over- seers of the four parishes.
