Mrs. Hicks Davies, Mrs. Owen Williams, Mr. Thomas, Headmaster, and the Clerk. Letters were read from the C. W.B. re grants, and from the Board of Education, enclosing a sealed copy of the new scheme for Beynon's charity; fiom the local, governors of the Fish- guard County School concerning joint action •j as to scheme. It was resolved that the Clerk reply to the latter, approving of the j principle of joint action as suggested as a last resource, hut that at present it was rie- i sirable to defer any action, as it was under stood that something will be done very soon to assist the necessitous schools. The sketch plans submitted by Mr. Hugh J. P. Thomas, architect, Haverfordwest, lor larger accomino- j dation by addition of class-room, and a cook- ery and workshop, were considered, and J appiovcd as far as the local governors were concerned, and it was decided to ask the architect to furnish specifications. Atten j tion was drawn to the irregular attendance of some of the pupils in school; also to some of them being out after eight o'clock. It i was resolved that the Clerk-rvrite to the par- I ents asking their attention to these inegnl.ui- ties, and to those who hare pupils siayiiig 1 j with them in lodging houses. It was also decided that arrangements be made to con- vey candidates for the P.T. examination to •J Haveifordwest in May at a reasonable rate. j The school will re-open on Monday, April 50th. ———— < Bank Holiday Social, Tea, and Concert. A goodly number of the people of St. Davids celebrated the Easter Monday holiday in plea- j sant social fashion at a tea and Band of < Hope entertainment held in the National School. The proceeds of both meetings were devoted to the furtherance of inissionaiy work j among the heathen. Among the guests we 1 j were specially glad to welcome the Bishop, i Dr. Owen, who is taking a short rest heie. i Tea was on the table from 4 to 6.30, so there was no delay or overcrowding. A stall at one end of the room held a variety of use ful and fancy articles, and a fine show of | cinerarias, the sale of which brought in a substantial addition to the fund. At 7.30 the room was jeady for the entertainment given by a section of the Band of Hope, who. to the number of 106, have met week by week regularly throughout the winter under the guidance of the vicar and Mrs. D. J. Jones. Mr. and Mrs. Jones were also entirely respon- sible for the concert, and must feel richly rewarded for the trouble they have taken. Where all did so well, it would be invidious to single out any for special commendation, but a word of praise must be given to the exquisite singing of the choir The tone war uniformly sweet and pure, and what is far more difficult to obtain, the expression was perfect and every word clearly audible. It [ is hardly possible to imagine any better chil dren's singing than that heard in "Father. dear Father." The action songs, viz., "Scarf driu," by pretty little girls, "Stilt song," and Head and heels," by the boys, of course took capitally; the children knew words and i actioh perfectly, seemed to enter into the ¡ spirit of the songs, and to put grace and J, fun iuto voices as well as gestuies. The f dialogues, especially those by boys, and not 1 ably The temperance doctor," have brought J' to light quite unexpected dramatic talent. These, like the action songs, were peremp- j torily redeinanded. The recitations were numerous, but mostly short and unhagkneyed (e.g., "The bell beneath the sea"). Even though some of the little girls could not make their voices travel quite to the end of the room, they looked so charming that the words were not greatly missed. From a similar entertainment last year we knew what a treat was in store for us in Haydn'S "Toy Symphony," sung and performed by some of the Cathedral choir boys. It went capitally, with the sweetness and vigour of spring it- self. Though there was plenty of fun all through, and laughter sounded frequently and heartily, the keynote of the entertain ment was serious, and should act as a power- ful incentive to temperance work. If a word of kindly criticism may be allowed on so excellent a concert, it would be that the programme was rather lengthy for such young performers, and that, in a children's concert, it is just as well to refuse encores.
