Llandudno and Vale of Conway…


Llandudno and Vale of Conway Teachers Association. A MEETING of the above association was held in the Higher Grade Schools, Colwyn Bay, on Saturday last. Mr Roberts, Glanwyddyn, pre- sided, and among those present were Messrs Griffiths (Colwyn Bay), M. Evans (Colwyn), James Jones (Colwyn Bay), Mulholland (Eglwys- fach), Charles Jones and Thomas (Penmaen- mawr), Hughes (Llysfaen), Tegarty (sec-e. tarv), and a number of ladies.—It was stated by the Secretary that the executive of the N.U.T. intended to take a census of the teachers in the district, and he had received a number of the requisite forms.—Mr Griffiths, headmaster of the Higher Grade School, was entered on the agenda to read a paper on the "Botany of the District" —a subject on which he is a iecognised h^cal authority. Unfortunately, for some wt-ki past IMr Griffiths had been ill, and unable to write the paper for the occasion. A vote of sympathy with Mr Griffiths was carried unanimously.—The Secretary read the report of the delegates to the Easter Conference at Bristol, indicating that after the presidential address, the result of the election of vice-president was carried. Two days were devoted to the discussion of the Education Bill, when the debate was almost whollv confined to London members.—A meeting of the Welsh teachers was held, when it was decided that Wales ought to be treated as England was under the Bill, i.e., it was the opinion of those present that the County Gov- erning Bodies of the intermediate schools were not the proper authorities to control elementary education, and that it would mean making two distinct grades of schools. A strong resolution was also carried protesting against "two columns A and B in the teacher's register." During the week the delegates for this approached several large associations with a view to obtaining their support for the conference of 1904 at Llandudno, and in every case support was freely promised. —After a hearty vote of thanks was given to the delegates for their report it was resolved to send a strong protest to Mr Lloyd George, Mr Herbert Roberts, and other members of Parlia- ment against the A and B columns in the teacher's register, as it was unfair to graduates working in elementary schools.—With regard to y t, the holding of the conference in Llandud'no in 1904 it was decided, on the proposition of Mr Sam Jones, seconded by Mr Mulholland, to ap- point a deputation to wait on the Council and place before that body the advantages of the proposed visit.—It meant something like £ io,ooo being spent in the Easter week.—A proposition by Mr Tegarty that Wales should be treated like England under the Bill fell through, the opinion of the majority present being evidently in favour of the Bill as it stood.-Several teachers ex- pressed their thorough confidence in the County Governing Bodies, and said they would like to work under them.—It was decided to invite several gentlemen to read papers during the coming year on subjects outside school teaching, so as to widen the teachers outlook.—A capital tea was provided by the teachers of the Higher Grade School, the proceeds of which went to the N.U.T. charities. j j +
