Circulation of Science and Art objects to Schools in connexion with

the Board, and to Museums established under a Municipal or other Local Authority or under the Public Libraries Acts,


CIRCULATED TO PERMANENT MUSEUMS. Collections of objects of Science and Art may be lent for an extended period to Museums at Schools of Science and Art, in connexion with the Board, and to Museums established under Municipal or other Local Authority or under the Public Libraries Acts. A collection will be allowed to remain at a Museum for 12 months under the following conditions :(a.) That the objects lent by the Board are supplemental to others

already exhibited in the Museum. (6.) That adequate provision, previously approved by the Board, is

nade for exhibiting them. (c.) That their security and safe return are guaranteed. (d) That they are insured against fire and theft. (e.) That the Museum consists of at least one room or gallery entirely

devoted to the exhibition of objects. (1) That the Museum is open to the public, both during the day-time

and the evening, and is open free at least one day and one

evening in each week. (9.) That any surplus in the receipts is applied for the benefit of

the Museum. At the expiration of 12 months the collection will be withdrawn, and a fresh contribution may be sent.

The Board, whilst consulting the wishes of the local authorities as to the nature of the objects, reserve to themselves the absolute right of the selection.

Valuable original objects will only be lent to Institutions in which efficient arrangements are made for their safe custody, and one or more attendants are employed to patrol the galleries during the hours that the Institutions are open to the public.

The Managers will be required to pay half the charges for carriage of the collection to the Museum and back, and to provide sufficient assistance for its proper arrangement.

If any object be received in a damaged state, when not in charge of an officer of the Board, a report of its condition should immediately be sent to the Board.

Glass cases, for the objects belonging to the Board which require protection, will be provided by the Board, and every object will be accompanied by a descriptive label.

Application for a Loan for a Permanent Museum must be made on Form 605A, on which applicants will be required to furnish the following information. 1. The purpose of the Museum.

Circulation of Collections of Apparatus and Objects for Instruction of

Science Classes With a view to the more efficient instruction of Science schools, suitable collections of apparatus have been formed specially adapted for the illustration of Science teaching. These collections are exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington, and are illustrative of the following Science subjects :Machine Construction.

Geology, Part II. --Advanced.
Building Construction.

Human Physiology.
Naval Architecture.

Theoretical Mechanics.

Navigation and Nautical
Sound, Light, and Heat.

Astronomy. Magnetism and Electricity. Steam. Inorganic Chemistry, Part I.- Physiography, Part I.-Elementary Elementary.

Physiography, Part II.-- Advanced. Inorganic Chemistry, Part II.- Agricultural Science and Rural Advanced.

Economy. Geology, Part I.-Elementary. Duplicate sets of the above apparatus are lent, as far as available, to Science schools for short periods. The loan is made in order that teachers may have an opportunity of examining and trying the apparatus, and be enabled to make a selection for purchase of that apparatus which would be most useful for instruction.

The following are the conditions on which loans will be granted :1. Application must be made on Form 802 on or before the 1st October of each year. Full information as to the nature of the buildings in which the apparatus will be deposited, and as to the provision which will be made for its safe custody and protection must be furnished. The Managers will be held responsible for the security and safe return of the objects lent.

2. No set of apparatus will be allowed to remain on loan in any Science school for a longer period than three weeks.

3. Teachers will be allowed to use the apparatus for the purpose of demonstrating before their classes; but it must not be used by the students. Any damage which the apparatus may sustain whilst in the possession of the class will have to be made good at the expense of the Managers.

4. Upon the receipt of the apparatus from the Board the Secretary of the Managers must immediately report to the Board the condition in which it is received, and specially notify any damage or injury. The Managers will be held responsible for the apparatus being safely repacked, and will be accountable for any damage which the collection may receive from the time of its receipt by them until its return to the Board.

Note. --The cost of carriage of the collection to and fro will be defrayed by the Board.

Geometrical Drawing (Art) and Perspective Drawing will count for both the Elementary Drawing Certificate and the 'I'raining College Drawing Certificate

(see below as to this certificate). There are two courses of instruction in Drawing,

each of which is intended to cover two years' study in Drawing at the Training College. A Training College may not take the two courses concurrently, except during the adoption of an alternative course. One course is for the Elementary Drawing Certificate (sce p. 75) towards which students may have already obtained successes which can be counted, and are counted, for this certificate. The second course is an alternative course for the Training College Drawing Certificate for the grant of which success is necessary in

(a) Drawings submitted to the Board for

examination ; (6) Blackboard Drawing ; and (c) Geometrical and Perspective Drawing.

The drawings under (a) above should be well finished

drawings, done in the Training College by its
students with either pen, pencil, chalk, or brush
(with tints of the same colour, i.e., monochrome) in
outline, or shaded, from common objects, casts of
ornament, or flat examples. The drawings must
be forwarded to the Board of Education, South
Kensington, London, S.W., on the 1st April, in

accordance with the regulations (see Form 564 T.C.).
When colour work is submitted, it will be examined

according to the standard for painting from still
life, from casts and common objects, and for design

in colour.
Each set of works from a student will be marked

either Good, Fair (which will count towards the

Training College Drawing Certificate), or Fail. The examinations are based on the syllabuses (see Note II. on p. 63). The Examinatiou papers for Science subjects are set in the Elementary and Advanced Stages papers. and in Honours, except in the case of Subject XV. (General Biology) and of the Day Examinations in which no papers in Honours are set. Questions are also set on the method of teaching the various Science subjects concerned ; and the answering of one or more of these que

ns may be compulsory.

Training College students may sit either at the Day Examinations or at the Evening Examinations, but not at both, and all the students of each college must take the same series of examinations in Science or Art, except that students taking Honours Examinations in Science must sit for these at the Evening Examinations, even though the College generally be taking the Day Examinations in Science.

No student in a Training College may attend an examination in a subject Restrictions of science other than that provided for his own College ; and students of Day Training Colleges who receive instruction in Art at an Art Class or School of Art outside the College are considered as students of such class or school, and grants in respect of their instruction will not be made under the rules laid down for Training Colleges.

Application for the examination must be made to the Board on Forms Application 119 (T.C.) and 276, not later than the 20th March.
