Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Thursday 03 January 1901
Conisborough School Board.
The monthly meeting of this board was held last night, Mr. W. W. Norwood presiding.
It was decided to affix the seal of the board to the conveyances of the site for the new school, and also to an amended contract with Mr. B. Wortley, of Doncaster for the erection of new schools and a boundary wall for £3 951 14s.
The Clerk (Mr. F. Allen), in reply to Mr. Brocklesby, said no communication had been received from the Education Department with respect to the modifications of the plans for the proposed school.
The Chairman referred to the case of a blind lad who had been in the Sheffield Blind School, and who was now at home running errands, etc. He had been learning basket-making, and he understood the Board of Guardians had power to get him into a manufactory. It was decided to bring the case before the Doncaster Board of Guardians.
