1949 ~ The Managers' Minute Books


Bishop Winnington-Ingram CE Primary School
Managersí Minute Book 1
(General Introduction - Opens in a new window)

- 1949 -

Below we present in outline a record of the meetings of Managers in 1949.  There were five full meetings. We have provided the opening headings, the list of those present, and thereafter only the side headings (an exception is made in relation to the use of the playground for outdoor games, October 27th).  

All minutes were in the hand of W. Dixon-Smith, often written at speed and not always entirely legible.

Almost the entire content of the Managerís discussions revolved around repairs and maintenance of the school building and grounds, especially the Hall.  The latter was of particular concern, since it was also the Parish Hall, let to outside bodies and thus provided a valuable funding stream for the Parish.  

At the April 29th meeting the Managers were notified of the appointment of Canon L.B. Tirrell as the new Director of Education for the London Diocesan Board of Education.  At the June 1st meeting the Managers made personal donations towards the departing Director, Canon G.D. Barker.
