New School Board Room Hereafter Secretary Fleetwood of the school board will be found in his new office on the upper floor of the manual training school. The board room will also be found in the same office, and all the business of the school district will be transacted there. The building was constructed by Smith Bros, and Wilson, local contractors, to the" plana and specifications prepared by H. M. and W. A. Whiddington, architects. It is the last word in school construction and is In keeping with the other school buildings which .have gained fame for the city. The plan for the construction of the building wa3 first conceived by Secretary. Fleetwood, of the school board, when he was chairman of the board in 1911. While in attendance at the annual convention of the School Trustees Association in Calgary he saw what was being done there along the lines of practical education, and on his return started an agitation which resulted in the construction of the school last year under the regime of Dr. Galbraith. It is a new departure in school affairs in the -city, but it is one which is destined to be a great success,-judging by the eagerness 'with which the school pupils are awaiting the opening of the classes. . The classes taking courses in the new school grades 6, 7 and 8 in the public and 9 and 10 tu the tygh school. ... When fully' equipped the school will have $20,000 worth of furniture, tools and other apparatus, so that the toal cost of the* building will be b&PHBRIDGE'S HANDSOME NE SPECTION FROM W MANUAL TRAINING SCHOOL, WHICH IS OPEN SEVEN TO E IGHT-fTHIRTY- Q',CLOCK TONIGHT FOR .IN- I COURT WILL AS^iilR RODOLPHE FORGET IF HE WILL KIND-LY TESTIFY .

There was a time when those living in that district had to ask for a school, hut now the vision of the Board has become enlarged, and this is unncccs-sHry. Heating and sanitation wttrc matters which the Board had Bonn very thoroughly, into, in order to make, the building as healthy as possible. One hears - much today of retrenchment, but T>r. Galbraith. questioned if this was wise, certainly not, if it entailed the lowering of the standard of schools or teachers, and while puipls increase, the numbar of schools must, alos increase. The Hoard is now face to face with the problem cf a new High School, and Dr. Galbraith bespoke for them the warmest support In producing an up-to-date building and equipment. Alter referring to some details in connection with the construction . of the Galbraith SCilOOi, he (i'c-ttiaibu ,,.6 . amid loud applause. Other Speakers Dr. R. B. C. Thomson, a member of ths School Board, expressed his pleasure at seeing the culmination of such a work, the educational significance of which could not be over-estimated. Reference was also made by Supt. W. A. Hamilton to the fact Unit when he began school work in the city on September 25, 1809, there was only one room with some forty pupils in. an old building which is now a residence nearly opposite Westminster School. This- was a striking evidence of the growth of educational work in Lethbridge, when one looks at the situation, today. School Trustees aicKlllop, E. V. Dooley, J. D. Higinbotham, Secretary J. H. Fleetwood, and several of the school 'principals were also present. A chorus, consisting of the pupils, sang with, true patriotic spirit and fire, "O, Canada," "which was greeted with-,tumultuous applause, this being duplicated when the favorite "Maple Leaf" was rendered. Several boys from the Westminster School took part in an effective and neatly executed wand drill. The musical drill by .the High School girls won the admiration of all. The proceedings werej brought to a close between five and .six o'clock,' with the singing cf "God Save the King.'' - Description of School j "' It will be of interest to re-publish a brief description of the new school which is. comple|eJiieyery detail.
