Ihe Union street School Committee’s meeting which should have been held last night was adjourned till Wednesday week. The Forbury School Committee met last evening; present—Messrs Smith (chairman), Johnston, Reid, Burke, Egger, Dawson, and Ross. The recommendation from the Lawrence Committee with reference to the proposed change in the mode of electing members of the Education Board was considered, and while all agreed that a reform in the system was necessary the members considered, on the ground of expense, that it would be inexpedient to have it in the manner suggested—namely, by a vote of the householders. It was felt that if the memhers of the Board were elected by the votes of the individual members of the school committees instead of as at present by the individual committees all practical purposes would be met. Accounts amounting to £8 8s were passed for payment. The head-master reported that the average attendance of scholars for the month was 4/5, and for the quarter 474, while the total number on the roll at the present time was 524.
