AMMAN VALLEY SCHOOLS
AMMAN VALLEY SCHOOLS The monthly meeting of the managers of the Amman Valley Council Schools was held at the Brynamman School on Wednesday afternoon in last week. Rev. W. D. Thomas was voted to the chair, and those present were: Rev. J. Edryd Jones, Aid. W. J- Williams, MessiK T. V. Jones, Gwilym Reets, D. Glyr. Jenkins, and T. B. Lewis; also the Clerk (Mr. D. J. Morris). MONTHLY LETTER. The monthly letter from the Education Committee showed ihat the salary of the cleaner of the Y stradowell School had been increased from £ 18 to 1;26. At the request of Alderman Williams, the Committee sanc- tioned the provision of a new t-tove at Bryn- Hmmal, infants' school to replace the one said to be worn out. BLINDS FOR EVENING SCHOOLS. There wero indications that the new Light- ing Order coupled with the refusal of tilt Education Committee to provide bluids for the v, indows, are making the holding of evening classes a rather formidable proposi- tion. The Education Committee wrote: "In view of the difficulty in obtaining material for blinds at the present time, the Com- mittee desire that the teachers should en- deavour to adopt seme other method of bub- oumg lights in the evening classes." The managers declined to rcquiescc in this and from the majority of the schools, the recommendation that blinds be provided wa. sent OI to the Committee. One head teacher wrote that he was afraid their evening eohool would have to be abandoned owing to the laak of blinds. The Tycroe^ School, on the other hand, madte a plea. for th:) installation cf either gas or electric light. It was stateu by Mr. lewis that the oil lamps now used were lent. It was recommended to the Com- mittee that gas lights be installed A LONG-STANDING GRIEVANCE REMOVED. Aid. W. J. Williams intimated that a long- standing grievance on the part of the heati- teachers had now been removed. Hence- forward the postages incurred by the head ine teachers, of the Council Schools would be paid for. Mr. T. B. Jones—And the telephone mes- sages. (Laughter). Ald. Williams added that the head teachers of their schools had felt it an injustice that they should have to pay postages on matters really concerning the Education Committee. The head teachers of the C. of E. schools were allowed their postages. So he (Aid. Williams) brought the matter up at the laist meeting of the Ccmmittee and from now on postages would be paid for the teachers in full. Chairman—But they paid it in part before Aid. Williams—Only now and again, when we brought up a bill, but I renember a 6d. bill they refused to paiy and there was a ti emendous fuss about it. But now the principle is adopted BRYNAMMAN SCHOOLS. The Brynamman head teacher (Mr. Jenkin Jones), in his report, gave a formal welcome to the managers, who, he stated, had done great service to the caiusc of education in this district. He pointed out that there were 44'; children on the books with an accom- rnodatior, fcr 329 only. Two teachers had left at the end of September, entering col- lege, and as only two student teachers had been engaged instead, he begged for an- ctlier experienced teacher; otherwise, Stan- dard IV., a big class of bl, would be with- out a teacher on Tuesdays and Thursdays when ecwing was carried on. The Clerk stated that the Education Com- mittee had already considered the question of the staff of the school, and had resolved to déer the appointment of a successor to Mr. E Griffiths, as the average aitendanca was 364 and the present staff was 370. Nevertheless, on the motion of Aid. W. J. Williams, seconded by the Rev. J. Eiiryd Jones, it wa-s decided to make recc mmenda- tions to the Education Committee in the matter. Miss S. H I saacs, headmistress of the ] infants'' school, gave throe months' notice cf resignation. iShe thanked the managers for the kindness and couitesy acotded Her curing 17 years' setvice and assured them she would always look back with happy re- collections upon that period, and with a feeling of having done her best to Ecrve them well. Ald. W. J. Williams said they exceedingly regretted to receive that notice. At the same time they must congratulate her upon the happy circumstances under which it was given. She had done a great deal of good wcrk in that school—work which was appre- ciated by the managers and generally throughout the Ice-ilit,N--and while sorry to have to accept her resignation, no influence, he daresay, would prevail upon her to with- draw it. The Clerk was instructed to convey '0 Miss Isaac the managers' regret at her re- signation, coupled with their felicitations on the happy circumstances. BLAEXAC SCHOOL. Mr. Gwilym Rees drew attention to several matters concerning the Blaenaiu School. He complained that an accom- plished teacher recommended by the mana- gers for a vacancy on the staff of that school, had against her own wishes b?en trans- ferred to another school. A resolution of protest to the Education Committee was pissed. CLEANERS WANT MORE REMUNERATION. Applications for an increase of salary were received from the cleaners of the Nantv- L-roes. Tvcroes. and Ammanford (infants'! schools. They were all sent on to the Com- niittee with recommendations in the two former cases for an increase of :C,. to ES I' le&pectively. The caretaker of the Bettws School had handed in her resignation owing t<- ill-health. WAITING FOR A CONVEYANCE. Mr. Eva,n Isaac Davies, on behalf of a committee of Nebo parents, wrote that the ohilda-en were still at large since the school had been closed, waiting for a conveyance, which was promised, to take them to the Ammanford school. They regretted the closing of the school, as the children already attending at Ammanford were obliged to stand on their feet all day aifter walking over three miles, owing to the crowded state of the school The Clerk said ihe Committee had half promised a conveyance. Chairman—It was a promise wth a loop hole. Rev. J. Edryd Jones-A promise made to à. bioken. Aid. W. J. Williams believed the Educa- tion Committee fully sympathised with the children of that district, and moved that the letter be sent to Carmarthen with a i evolu- tion of the managers, who probably knew the local circumstances better, cupporting it. Rev. J. Edryd Jones seconded a

CWMAMMAN At the monthly meeting of the Cwmam- man Council on Wednesday night in last week, Mr. W. Roberts presiding, the Medi- cal Cfficer (Dr. Grice) reported thait only crie fresh cise of scarlet fever had occurred during the month. Tne Council compli- mented him on the satisfaeti'i v result of the steps taken to prevent the spread of the disease, which had assumed epidemic form. The question of the remuneration of the Clork for National Registration work was deferred pending- a reply from the- Local Government Board on the matter.

AMMANFORD I We are estremely pleased to record the excellent acliievement of Mr. J. Harriet Thomas, head master of the Parcyrrum Schools, in winning the high distinction ut AssoL-iateship of the RovaJ C-ollege ot Music, London, carrying with it the right of ap- pending the letters A.R.C.M. to his name. The examination was taken in Lor.don last week, the board of examiners being presided over by Sir 1'has. Standford. the composer and professor of music at Cam bridge University. Mr. Thoma's, although a member of ar.oth..r profession, has devoted considerable time to the studying of the musical art. Even when preparing- for the schoolmasters'- certificate at tl.e Bangor Normal College, he was awarded by the cojlegie authorities a free etudontslnp in music and this brought him in contact with Dr Roland Rogers, organist of Bangor Cathedral, from whom he received lessons in organ and pianoforte playing. After his college career, he took up the study of the clarinet, and gained valuable experience seme of the best South Wales orchestras However, lus aidvent to Carmarthenshire deprived him of opportunities he hitherto had tnjeyed. and he abandoned the instru- ment. Hi$orchestral experience has been invaluable to him in the production of recent choral u orks lie has been associated in with the Ebenezer Baptist Choral Society. Prioi to his advent to Ammanford seven jears I HgO, he was connected as accompanist with the Llandilo Choral Society for ten consecu- tive years, the conductor being the late Mr. R. C. Jenkins, Llanelly—one of Wales' greatest choral leaders. This was. invaluable experience. The best old and modern works were produced, s-uch as Elgur's "King Olaf," Cole' i dge-'fa ylor's Hiawatha. Haydn's Creation," &c .\5 a pianoforte accompanist, Mr. Harries-Thoma6 has a wide reputation, and has been the recipient of much praise from artistes and musicians from time to time. Not long ago. Dr. Caradoc Roberts publioly declared that ne was one of the fines* accompanists he had ever heard. At Ammaifford he has been active in musical alfairs During the na-H seven years he has been the organist of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, and the conductor of the Choral Society oonnected with the church, which has given performances of two complete works under his baton, the last performance of Mendelssohn's Athalie "being unique in the seivse that it was the first local production of a classi- cal work in music. The choir has now. we ,-alh understand, Handel's Messialh in re- hearsal, and unless unforeseen oircur-stances erMe, it will be produced before many months have elapsed. We extend our wannest congratulations to Mr. Thomas.
