The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 73

Officers:

Officers:

PresidentMr. P. B. Fraser, M.A.; SecretaryMr. O. I. Flamank; TreasurerMr. Wm. McDonald.

During the year ending April 30th. 1895, there have been sis ordinary and two special meetings of the Branch. The average attendance at these meetings has been 13, and the highest 20. The total number of members is 20.

The first four meetings of the Branch were held at intervals of two months. At a special meeting held in December, 1894, it was decided that "The Branch should, in future, meet monthly, except in January and February," so as to give a better chance for discussing any matter requiring immediate attention without calling a special meeting.

The following is a syllabus of the chief work done during the year:—
(a)Paper—"Average Attendance at Schools, and Methods of Increasing it"[gap — ]Mr. P. B. Fraser.
(b)Paper—"N.Z. University, from a Teacher's Standpoint"[gap — ]Mr. G. Macdonald.
(c)Discussion on "School Books," "Exceptions," "School Attendance Bill," and "University Scholarships for Pupil Teachers."

A special meeting of teachers, called by this Branch, was held in February, to consider the Teachers' Classification Scheme. From that meeting a resolution was sent to the Education Board, expressing disapproval of the scheme.
