[per press association.] Educational. Auckland, To-day. At a meeting of the Governors of the Grammar School to-day, Mr Hesketh gave notice of a series of resolutions to the effect—“ That the recent decision of the Board re notice of termination of engagements of masters at the school, „and their entrance upon negotiations for procuring a University graduate as headmaster, be revoked and annulled on various grounds, but principally because the decisions were hastily and irregularly arrived at, and because those who constituted the majority were Sir G. M. O’Rorke, Mr Fenton, and the three nominees, whose election they secured by personally soliciting votes for them—viz., Brookfield, Tole, and Nelson. ” The resolution was couched in very bitter terms, and likely to provoke a most acrimonious discussion. Sir G. M. O’Rorke stigmatised them as most offensive. Mr Clark also gave notice that he would move—“ That the Government take over the present College for the purpose of a Girls’ High School, and pay the cost to the Board for erecting another building.”
