1865 ~ The Managers' Minute Book


Ruislip Church of England School
Managers’ Minute Book 1864-1903
(General Introduction - Opens in a new window)

- 1865 -  

Below we present the record of meetings the Managers held during 1865.  Little of import was recorded in the Committee’s minutes that year, though these do identify the School Master at the time, Mr Lavis.  The National Society, referred to in the Minutes for 15th August, was the body supporting the development of Church of England schools (see the General Introduction).  In addition to providing grants to schools, it ran a significant publishing section producing books to support teaching in schools.     The 15th August minutes also refer to the annual report (see the General Introduction).  The 'subscribers' were those members of the Parish that gave financial support to the school.  In later years of the ninetieth century the inspection reports were published in the Parish Magazine.
