ONEHUNGA SCHOOL COMMITTEE.
The monthly meeting of the Onehunga School Committee was held last evening.
Tennis Court.—Miss Bull, on behalf of the teachers, wrote, asking that the staff be granted permission to use the tennis courts on Saturday afternoons. This request was acceded to. It was reported tliat pupils desiring to play on the school tennis courts were charged 2/8 each, and to this charge several of the committee took exception. Mr. Osborne considered that as in every society or club those desirous of playing should contribute towards the cost of providing accessories. The VCheirman thought a shilling at most should be levied, but that no child should be kept off the courts becanse of inability to pay a subscription. It was resolved to instrnct the headmaster to report as to whether children who did not contribute were debarred from playing. School Roll.—The Roll number was reported at 734, and the average attendance 656. In the secondary department the roll number was 47, with an average of 41. Schoolgronnd.—The Board of Education reported that £126 had been spent on the Bchooltrfonnde, including £05 for the formation of a tennis court.
