There Avere about 40 householders :pre sent and Mr A. Orr, Chairman of Com mittee took the chair and read! the notice convening the meeting. The Secretary then read the report of, the Committee for the past year which" was as follows :—

Report of the. Hampstead School Committee, for the, year ending April, 1890.

Gentlemen, —In laying before you our report for the past 12 months, " we have the satisfaction of being able to congratulate the householders of the district on the continued success of the school both in point of attendance and proficiency, and to the credit of the staff of teachers it must be said that chese results have been attained in the face of considerable difficulties entailed.:by, changes in the .staff itself and the temporary absence of some of. them through illnesss etc. As you are rid doubt, aware,.Mr Mayne,-the head nushsr left duringtlie last year,, and his ■place was taken by Mr Malcolm', and in addition to, Miss Shirtcliffe's prolonged absence through illness, there were several changes and temporary appointments amongst the pupil teachers, The present staff had not fairly got into working order again when fresh difficulties arose through accommodation hai. ■ :!,.- !■» be found in other buildings for a isi.'isiv [of classes that hiul h> I).; roiiuuel iv«-iii the school during the erection of the ad-, ditional roomy. Notwithstanding all this j

as before stated, up to the last month the attendance has steadily increased. One cause of the recent falling off, was moving ■ the children about during erection of new rooms, and the most serious falling off has been caused by the prevalence of influenza. The two causes being' only temporary there is no doubt the school will shortly recover or outstrip its usual average attendance, especially in view of the superiority and comfort of. the accommodation provided by the building of additional rooms. During the past year an additional piece of land was purchased by the Board as'ah*' addition to 1 the' playground. , , . , - x '■? " As to the -continued proficiency md progressof the school," wem#y,6implyjjj»te the words of the Inspector V That the School is in a thoroughly' sounH condition of' efficency,-and -the discipline,, is: very good."
