During the session of 1890-91, seven ordinary, and one special, meetings have been held with an average attendance of 17; the highest being 24 in June, and the lowest 12 in October.

The number of members of the Branch is 58 at 7s. 6d.. and 15 lady members at 2s. 6d.

During the year the following programme was carried out:—
"Illustrations as an Aid to Teaching" Mr G. H. Smith.

"Continuation Schools" Mr G. M. Thomson, F.L.S.

A special meeting was held on October 11th to consider the action of the Board re the proposed abolition of bonuses. The matter was discussed by those present, but it was eventually referred to the General Committee of Management, as was also the matter of the 'New Zealand Herald's' article on "Education." The amount standing to the credit of the Branch is £2 16s. 10d.
