BOROUGH SCHOOL.

HOUSEHOLDERS' MEETING.

The annual meeting of householders' as far as Ashburton is concerned is apparently, not being looked forward to with the same interest as was the case last year. It will be remembered that on that occasion rival .factors were at work and the Alleuton residents organised to a man and at the meeting brought an overwhelming majority of voters to the school and practically elected their own committee. The reason of Allenton's special effort was the dissatisfaction that had existed over the main school for that locality, and other grievances of a smaller nature. Since that date, however, a change has taken place and the main school has now been promised. The .land question for the school is also practically an assured fact. A "Guardian" reporter in conversation with some Allenton residents the other day, in regard to the school committee, was informed that Allenton had no intention of letting go its grip on the committee, that it would be well represented at the householders' meeting. The borough had now got its new school and it would be to the mutual advantage of both localities to now have their representatives on the committee. Allenton members would, support the Jwo additional rooms for the borough school provided the borough would guarantee the same support for the main school at Allenton. It is understood also that Mr H. M. Jones intends to renew his effort at the annual meeting to establish a tepid bath near the" power-house, so that it will be within easy reach of the pupils attending the school. The question of suitably; housing Mr Ferriman's gift of a telescope to the school will also come jip for discussion, their being several parents in' the borough who consider that there is no need for further delay in this matter and that steps should be taken at once to raise the necessary money for the building. Mr Hurst Seager's advice to Beautify the grounds on the rise in front of the new building is also likely to be discussed by'Mr Jones and others.
