THE WAKANUI SCHOOL COMMITTEE.
TO. THE EDITOR.
Sir, —Would you kindly insert the following corrections in your report of the last meeting of the Wakanui School Committee, held on June sth,
Be the appointment of clerk in which I «im made to_ say, that I would give my vote to Miss Stewart, otherwise it would look as if the Committee were dissatisfied with the- way she had attended to the duties of Clerk, I give this statement an, unqualified denial. What I did say was "that Messrs Hill and Tait must have been dissatisfied with the way she had performed her duties." I did not object. to Mr W. Mcßae personally, bub from the position he holds there was no certainity that he would remain in the district for any time.
With regard to the passage of arms between two members of Committee, Mr B. says that his boy is attending the" school with the sanction of the Committee. Mr B. has no such sanction. Not that I object personally to Mr B.s boy attending the school, but at the same time what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. With regard to the Board's -letter of April 15th, the following is a correct copy : "That the reading books prescribed by the Board for Standard V or Standard VI are the sequel to the Royal Reader No. 5 and Royal Reader No. 5, Series ]J. Standard VI, taught separately, to use a book at the discretion of the teacher. The Inspectors do not recommend the sixth Royal Reader, as the subject matter of many of the lessons in it is too difficult to admit of its being used with all the advantagesexpectedfromreadinglessons." lam etc., ' ,' > P. Stewart,.. ■ '; Chairman of Committee.
