School Superintendent Percy Pullinger, who brought up the problems r c g a r ding Elkford schooling, said soon a fourth teacher would be needed and the number could rise to eight. If we cannot get accommoda- i lion, we can't get the teachers. j It's as simple as he said. It was lie who recommended I tliat a meeting be held with i Fording Coal to find out what the accommodation situation is and figures are available on numbers of families moving in. Enrolment figures are so high above what was expected at Elkford's new school that the village recreation hall has had to be put into use as a temporary school. Delays in moving the six- room school, which was in use in Fernic, combined with prob- lems at the site, was the cause of overcrowding. Secretary Treasurer Ernie Chambers reported that it had been hoped that the six-room school, described as a com- pletely relocatable school, would have been ready for oc- cupancy by the opening. The relocated school is plan- ned for opening as soon as pos- sible. At the June term's end, a total of 17 students were enrol- led. It jumped to 49 in the past week and is still going up.
