Well appointed Evening schools and classes may submit Grouped schemes and time-tables for grouping together cognate Science Subjects. and Art subjects. This grouping will only be permitted where the students are actually in training for a trade or craft under some recognised educational authority, and the subjects selected for grouping together are those necessary for the instruction in the principles underlying such trade or craft. The time to be given to instruction in each subject of the proposed group must be clearly indicated in the scheme submitted for approval. Where an Adranced Course is proposed, the instruction in it must, as u rule, be confined to a smaller number of subjects than that which is suitable for the Elementary Course
