Llandilo County Schools AXLAL PRIZE DISTRJ BL TIOX. Tho annual <li^tlibation of prizes in con- | nection with the Llandilo County School took place at the Drill Hall, Llandilo, on Wednesday, the 17th instant. Aid. W. N. Jones, Ammanford, chairman of the Gover- nors, presided. The prizes were distributed bv Mrs. L. N. Powell, Carregcennen. The meeting was addressed by Mr. S. Glynne Jones, B.A., O.B.E., Llanelly. The Headmaster (Mr G. Gwyn Jones. B.A.), in his report, drew a contrast be- tween education 25 years ago as compared "with to-day. He did so because it was then the school was started. This was the 21st rrize distribution at which he had the honour of making a report. Twenty-five years ago the Welsh Education Act was being put into operation. They could only chaw on the rates then a halfpenny in the pound, and only a few were considered as likely to take advantage of the Secondary Education Schools. Things improved by when the Education Act of that year v as passed. Two pence in the pound was allowed to be levied for the support of the schools. TIv 1918, under Mr. Fisher's* Act, which really centered rotinde Secondary Education, all restrictions as to rates aid were withdrawn. The Elementary Schools now been me really preparatory schools. With regard 10 the view the community took of the movement, he mentioned that when he came there the school for some time numbered 100. It served both the Llandilo District and the Amman Valley. Now there were two schools serving the dis- trict. In the'Ammanford School there were 290 at present, whereas at Llandilo School +here were 260, so that the 100 in 20 years had grown to 550, and these numbers did 1101. represent all that would be in the schools if they could be admitted. The school in the past year had been most suc- cessful. For the seventh year in succession one of their boys had gained a County Ex- Ti it ion of E25 a year, viz.: Thomas Glyn Stephens. Three Avon Entrance Scholar- ships and Exhibitions at the University College of Wales at Aberystwyth. The ether two were Marian Hilda Francis and Rees Davies. The school was suffering t'ns year by the departure of four male teachers who had served for a long period, viz., Messrs. J. H. Rees, Downing Wil- liams, Tom Davies, and John Evans. He wished to place on record their apprecia- tion of their services to the school. The Governors intended erecting a roll of honour in the School Central HaJJ inscribed with the names of all who took part in the great uar, with a special panel inscribed with the names of those who had falleii,-27 in numbcr-and an appeal was made to all the relatives for information so as to make the loll as complete as possible. The Chairman, in his address, mentioned that this was the 24th annual prize distri- bution of that school which he had atten- ded. He congratulated the headmaster and staff en the excellent results achieved during the year. The accommodation not being sufficient to meet the increasing de- mands for admission, the Chairman said the Governors had in contemplation a scheme for enlarging the school. Mr. S. Glynne Janes, B.A., O.B.E.. Llanelly, addressed rhe meeting, confining his remarks to the children. Exhibitions and Scholarships.'—C armar- ihenshire.
