SCHOOL COUNCIL FORMED.

The children during the past few months have been taking an active interest in the government of the school. A school council has been formed, the members of which see that the playground is kept tidy and also that there is general neatness around the school. There is also a very energetic band of Junior Red Cross workers. Many and varied have been their activities for the past month. The results of their efforts have been most gratifying. All money raised is used to help the sick and needy children of soldiers.

Another very active body in connection with the school is the Junior Farmers’ Club. This has a membership of 2S, comprising children from both schools and those who have left, but are still under the age of 21. The children have chosen for their projects various themes, such as vegetables, bee-keeping, flower growing and pig-raising. In connection with the vegetable’s, a ¼ acre of potatoes is being worked at the school by the whole club.

P. AND C. COMMENDED.

Tributing the P. and C. Association, the headmaster commends their tireless efforts on behalf of the school. As result, considerable material has been brought while leaving a pleasing bank balance. In the near future the Association hopes to install the electric light in the school building. The children have voluntarily assisted the war effort during the past year. A war savings group has been formed, and also a penny chain, the proceeds of the latter going to the Junior Red Cross. The local branch of the Red Cross has also had numerous donations of money from the school, having been raised from the sale of vegetables grown, by the children.

A number of children also have spent quite a lot of their spare time making camouflage nets. As a result seven of the larger nets have been completed.
