Some discussion having taken place as to the manner of calculating the Additional Aid, in places where the Patrons of schools should not have paid their full equivalent of two pounds for each child in average attendance, the following rule was adopted by the Board.

The quarterly Salary:

According to the average attendance having first been found, the additional aid is to be reckoned in the usual manner till the whole sum amounts to the whole Salary to which the Teacher is entitled by the Certificate, subject to regulations previously made by the Board. After this, the sum which the amount paid by the Patrons falls short of the equivalent required them, namely- Ten shillings per quarter for each child in average attendance, is to be deducted from the Salary of the Teacher as above stated. Some discussion also took place as to the proper application of the fund granted by the Provincial Government for the purchase of books and School requisites for the use of schools in connexion with the Board. The full consideration of the subject was deferred to a future occasion. Read confirmed 17th Dec. 1862. (Signed) Charles KNIGHT Chairman.

Present: The Chairman, Rev. Mr. LLOYD, Mr. SANDERSON, Dr. O’HARA, Mr. PHILLIPS,

Much discussion took place as to the method of reckoning the amount of “Additional Aid” with reference to the rule on that subject entered in the minutes of the last meeting. No alteration was made in the principle of the rule, but the following was proposed as a clearer statement of it.

“The Salary is calculated from the number of Scholars. To this sum is added the additional Aid, at the rate not exceeding two pounds per head, so as to bring the amount to maximum allowed by law. From this is, to be deducted  the deficiency of the Patrons  Equivalent”

On the recommendation of the Inspector, Mifs HOBBS was recognised as assistant Teacher at St. Mathews Boys School.

A letter from Bishop POMPALLIER, requesting that Mifs. DELUNCLE might be recognised as assistant teacher in the Roman Catholic School at Otahuhu, was read by Chairman.

After careful consideration the report, with some alterations was adopted. The Board also instituted some slight changes in the method of stating the particulars comprised in the appendix to the report.

Dr O,HARA gave notice of his intention to move at the next meeting of the Board, that the rule adopted by the Board on the 1st of December 1857 with reguard to the examination of the Infant School Teachers be reconsidered.

On the application of Bishop POMPALLIER, a School in Wyndam Street, conducted by Miss Ellen LEARY was taken into connexion by the Board.

The Secretary having called the attention of the Board to the necessity of renewing their stock of books and maps, it was proposed and carried, that a sub committee, consisting of the Chairman, the Rev Mr LLOYD, Dr. O’HARA and the Secretary, be appointed to take the necessary steps for this purpose.

An application from the Rev. D. BRUCE.  A School at New Market conducted by Mr. GLANFIELD was taken into connexion by the Board, Mr. I. SNODGRASS being named as Superintendent of the School.

As the consideration of this application had been delayed by a change of Board and other causes it was decided that the Teacher should be entitled to Salary from the beginning of the current quarter.

At the request of the Rev. BUDDLE superintendent of Wesleyan Schools, Mrs. SINGER who had been appointed assistant teacher in the School conducted by Mr. SINGER at Parnell, was recommended by the inspector (according to the 24th clause of the Education act) in order that she might be recognised in that capacity by the Board. The Board after due consideration decided that they had not sufficient ground for recognising the appointment of Mrs. SINGER.

The inspector having reported that no returns had been received from Onehunga C. E. School for the quarter ended June 30th 1863, was instructed again to call the attention of the Superintendent of the School to the irregular manner in which the returns of that School were forwarded.
