School Managers

Conisbrough Primary School Managers, who have been pressing for the immediate appointment of a school enquiry officer to serve the Conisbrough district, were informed on Tuesday by their chairman, Coun. H. Gomersall, that arising out of a recommendation by No. 18 Divisional Education Executive Authority were to take action in the matter “sooner than was intended.”

“We cannot afford to be without an enquiry officer,” Coun. Gomersall said. “This district has suffered during the past 12 months through not having one.”

Coun. R. H. Shepard called for improved structural conditions at the Rossington Street school. Resignations of Mrs W. F. Leger from the staff of Morley Place infant School and of Mrs Williams (Mexborough) from Balby St, Junior School, both with effect from next Tuesday, were accepted.

The appointment of Miss Barbara Sanderson, Old Road, Conisbrough, as a nursery helper at Denaby Main Nursery Class was approved, and several members expressed the view that in future such appointments should be advertised in the local press.

It was explained that the arrangements now applying were for would-be applicants to submit their applications to the Divisional Education Office and when vacancies arose they were notified.

Mrs. G. Oldfield and Mrs A. E. Stimson drew attention to the position they found that Station Rd, Junior School during a recent visit when I went to the inclement weather some of the teachers and scholars had to wear their overcoats to keep warm. It was decided to seek the head teacher’s observation on the matter.
