If any claim is made for payments in subjects No. XVIII. (Principles of Mining), XX. (Navigation), XXI. (Nautical Astronomy), or XXIV. (Principles of Agriculture), it will be necessary, in accordance with the requirements of the Directory, to fill up the certificate hereto appended.

In the absence of such certificate the claim in respect of any of these subjects cannot be considered. We, on behalf of the Managers of School No.

hereby certify that the students claimed on in Subject XVIII., XX., XXI., or XXIV., are, or are going to be, employed in a trade or industry to which the subject applies, or are going to be teachers of the subject.

The entries for Day and Evening classes must be kept separate.
The names of the students must be arranged alphabetically.

A separate line should be used for each student, and the attendances made by him in each subject must be entered opposite his name in the column allocated to that subject.

In an Evening class, not more than 60 attendances in any one subject of Science may be counted during one session on behalf of a student, nor more than 120 attendances altogether. In a Day class these numbers are 120 and 240 respectively. The total of the attendances claimed on for each student should be entered opposite his name in the last column.

Grants for attendance may not be claimed on account of the same student in any one year in more than two subjects, other than Subject I. (Practical Plane and Solid Geometry), and Subject V. (Mathematics)-See Š XLIIIe. of the Directory.

In Science Schools where only Day classes are held, the Certificate on page 1 of this Form should be duly filled up, and the entries of attendances claimed upon should be made on the fly sheets headed “ Day classes only."

The total attendances in each subject on each page should be carried forward to a summary of totals at the end of the claim.

N.B.- Before sending in this form a record should be kept of any particulars which are likely to be required by the Managers, as, after the Grant has beer paid, the claim is treated as a voucher and cannot be returned.

The form of claim which is used in the case of a School of Science is
No, 516.

The form of claim which is used for payments on results of Examina-
tions in Honours is No. 51c.
The form for certificates of attendances (Art) is No. 405.

When the oard is satisfied that, by reason of a notice of the Sanitary
Authority of the district in which a School or Class is situated, or any two
members thereof acting on the advice of the Medical Officer of Health,
requiring the Managers for a specified time, with the view to preventing the
spread of disease, or any danger to health likely to arise from the condition
of the school, either to close the school or to exclude any students from
attendance, or by reason of any provision of an Act of Parliament, or by
reason of the exclusion under medical advice of children from infected
houses, the attendance has been seriously diminished, and that conse-
quently a loss of grant would but for this paragraph be incurred, the
Board has power to make a special grant to the Managers in respect of
students excluded from attendance by the closing of the school or other-
wise as above, such grant not to exceed that which would be payable on
the average registered attendance of the school. The provisions of this
paragraph are applicable to a School of Science.

Each is a registered student in the School under their supervision,

and has earned an attendance Grant for the session in each

subject on account of success in which a prize is claimed ; 2. None has previously obtained a prize, or a similar or a higher

success, in the same subject as that in which a claim is now made.

N.B.-No student can receive a prize for any subject except in mathematics,

unless he or she has previously passed in the Elementary Stage of the same subject. 3. None is a teacher who is earning or has earned payments on account

of instruction under the Board of Education, South Kensington ; 4. None is or has been a student of the Queen's Colleges in Ireland,

of the Royal College of Science, London or Dublin, of the Royal Dockyard Schools, or of any other institution receiving State aid for instruction in those subjects which are taught as a portion of
