Proposed Side School at Alford Forest.

On Tuesday last a meeting was held; m the Springfield schoolroom to confer with Mr E. G. Wright, Commissioner from the Education Board, on the above subject and others. Mr N. Ohlsen occupied the chair. ' ; The other subjects were questions of boundaries, which were soon disposed; of. Then came the question, whether the people wished a Side School, and to this a decidedly affirmative answer was given. I It was suggested that the difficulty might be lessened, if not completely met, by,removing the Alford Forest School further to the south, but this did not find much I favor with those present, though it would place the school more m the centre of the children of that district than where it is now. The objections of the Springbtirn people to a Side School were that bbth the schools would be weakened by it, and that it would be a waste of public money. It was also pointed out that the present schools of Springburn and Alford Forest were only five miles from each other, and that very few children were so far as three miles from the nearer of the two. The meeting was then consulted as to a site, if the Side School should be allowed, and after some discussion the resolution was m favor of a site at the junction; of the roads at the boundary of the two districts. After various details had been supplied to Mr Wright the meeting closed.
