TO THE EDITOR. Sie,—When the school dinner hour was extended to the extra quarter of an hour the children, as well as parents, were given to understand that in future even the little ones would bo enabled to go home for their midday meal, and that there would be no need of piece-carrying i and yet yesterday (Tuesday) my children did not arrive home till 3 30, owing to their teacher allowing them only fifteen minutes at midday on account of the rain. Consequently my little ones had nothing to eat from 7 a.m. till 4 p.m.—nine hours without food. I maintain that that ia far too long for young ones to fast. Either allow the children to bring their lunches, as formerly, or send them home. This irregularity in the dinner hour I would commend to the notice of the School Committee —I am, etc., A Pakent. Dunedin, September 4. [We learn on inquiry that the order for a shortened dinner applied only to those children who had luncheon with them, and that consequently the afternoon session was shortenod by nearly an hour.—Ed. E.S.]
