Class 2.—Grants in Aid and Course of Instruction.

1. Each town or village, not being the chief town of the division, or each chief town of a division in which a public school of the first class cannot be established, shall be allowed a sum in aid of the salary of a teacher to an amount ranging from £50 to £75 per annum, a guarantee being furnished by the managers of the school, to the satisfaction of Government, that for three years their annual contribution towards the teacher's salary shall be at least equivalent to the grant in aid.

2. Where the standard of instruction and the numbers of scholars in daily attendance appear to the Superintendent-General of Education to require the services of assistant teachers, a grant not exceeding £30 per annum, in aid of the salary of each assistant teacher, will be made by the Government, on a guarantee being furnished by the managers of the school that with this aid the salary of such assistant be at least £60 per annum, and shall be duly paid; provided that in schools attended both by boys and girls one female teacher, whether principal or assistant, shall be employed whenever circumstances permit.
