Meat mothers interviewed felt the two months off in the summer wrs too long a holi- day and suggested a mare workable solution would be to have four or five weeks off in the summer with an- oiher holiday break part way through the year. Gail Rideau says two months is too long a holiday because the youngsters get bored and it is difficult to keep them ac- tive for that length of time.

Total enrolment is project- ed by both school boards to be equal with last year's enrolment with the ex- ception bsing Grade 1. enrolment ex- pected to drop in Grade 1 again this year in the sep- arate system's elementary schools likely as a direct re- sult of tha decreasing birth rate. Ralph superinten- dent of the Lethbridge Sep- srate School expects about 160 youngsters to enrol in the first grade this year. In recent enrolment in Grade 1 has exceeded 200. ftlr. Himsl admits his pro- jection may be slightly off ths if the number of phone calls his office is re- ceiving from parents to enrol their children in Grade l is any indication of the number of students who will actually register. AbouI 76 fewer students exoeeted to enrol have been receiving quite a few mare calls than in past he explained. The separate school system in the city expects 2.286 stu- dents to register this down only three students from 1972.

The projected decrease in enrolmsnt in some separate schools has resulted in a re- duction of three teachers for tha 1973-74 school term. St. Paul's School will have one less teacher and St. Mary's School will be reduced to 20 teachers from 22. Although Catholic Central High School's enrolment is expected to increase substan- tially this teacher num- bers will likely remain con- stant at 42. The Lethbridge p u b 1 ic school system is projecting a teaching staff of 350 and a student enrolment 'of for the 1973-74 school term. That's seven fewer teach- ers and 73 fewer students than the previous school year. Projected student enrol- msnt figures for this school term compared to 1972 indi- cate an increase for five schools and a decrease for nine others. Hamilton Jr. High School expects to increase its. enrol- ment to 721 from Pater- son Jr. High to 795 from Senator Buchanan School to 375 from Watson School to 380 from 368 and Westmin- ster School to 324 from 323.
