Commenting on the report yesterday that overcrowding at Balmoral School had resulted in Standard V. children being accommodated in the "cellars" at Edendale School, Mr: A. Gear, chairman of the Edendale School Committee, said to-day that the impression might be created that this referred to a six months' period. The position was, he said, that one of the Balmoral classes had for a week been given quarters in the basement of the infant department at Edendale, but for the rest of the time it had had its lessons in classrooms of the new type designed to give the children the benefit of maximum sunshine. A second Balmoral class had been in "sunshine' rooms for the whole of its stay at Edendale.
