1937 ~ The Managers' Minute Books
Winnington-Ingram CE Primary School
- 1937 -
Below we present the
record of the single meeting of Managers held during 1937.
Following a suggestion
from the Local Authority, in an attempt to overcome the very significant
overcrowding in the school, the Managers’ decided not to allow its hall
to be used as a classroom, as it needed to be let.
This might suggest a mercenary approach on behalf of the parish,
placing money over the education of the children.
However, the parish may have borrowed significantly to support the
building of the school (they had funded the hall) and therefore needed
money to repay of any loans.
Two teaching posts
needed filling in the school, Miss Duthie, who had left at the end of
October and Miss Hill-Jones who was due to leave at the end of December.
As an interim measure, Mr A.G. Robson was employed on a supply
basis to cover Miss Duthie’s class; the Managers converted this to
a permanent appointment. For
Miss Hill-Jones, there was no acceptable candidate, and it was to be
some time before one could be found (cf. the introduction to the
Managers’ minutes for 1938).
