was set out in the Annual Report on Education for 1949.
The University College of the West Indies established in Jamaica widens for
Vincentians, in common with other West Indians, the opportunities for receiving
a University Education, and record must be made of the historic event on 16th .
February when the Installation of H.R.H. Princess Alice G.C.V.O., G.B.E., V.A.,
Countess of Athlone as Chancellor of the University College took place.
During the visit to St. Vincent on 2nd March of Her Royal Highness Princess
Alice and the Earl of Athlone, the Princess addressed pupils of the two Secondary
Schools in the Grammar School. Each school was the happy recipient of a
photograph of Her Royal Highness.
The Royal Visit was too short for any further participation by school children.
The first school to be constructed of landcrete was built in Barrouallie and
was completed in Novembar 1950. The building has a fine appearance and
utilization of this material has greatly reduced the cost of construction.
A new Primary School at Richmond Hill to accommodate 500 children was
completed in December, 1950. A Craft Centre, which provides facilities for
woodworking and domestic science, has also been erected in that area. This
centre serves the primary schools in Kingstown.
Three experimental Pupil Teacher Training Centres were started in 1950.
The two Government Secondary Schools were beneficiaries in the Will of the
late Major William Bain Gray, a former Administrator of St. Vincent who
bequeathed a sum to be spent annually on Prizes. Legislation to effect this was
passed in 1950.

The Education Officer is responsible for the administration of the educational
system of the Colony. The Primary Scbools are inspected by the Inspector of
Schools.
Mr. E. C. M. Theobalds B.A. who had been seconded from Jamaica in 1948 to
fill the post of Education Officer was appointed Assistant Director of Education,
Barbados in February, 1950. Mr. C. V. D. Hadley, B.Sc. Social Welfare Officer St.
Vincent, was transferred to the vacancy.
2. Advisory Boards and Committees.
The Board of Education consisting in 1950 of the Education Officer as
Chairman and 13 members advises the head of the Administration on policy and
assists in th-, framing of regulations. The members of the Board include the
Heads of the Government Secondary Schools for Boys and Girls, the Inspector of
Schools. clergymen, and a representative of the St. Vincent Teachers' Association,
in addition to members of the general public.

3. Primary Schools.
The Primary Schools, 38 in number, aie divided into Government Schools and
Denominational Schools. Government Schools number 16. The Denominational
schools are divided among three Denominations as follows :-Anglicans 9,
Methodists 11, Roman Catholics 2. In the Denominational, or assisted primary
schools, the teachers are employed by the several Boards of Management subject
to the approval of th', Government, but their salaries and pensions are paid by
Government, which also supplies grants for the upkeep of buildings and equipment
and provides most of the furniture and all the books. Primary education is free.
The School aga is from 5-15. An annual inspection of each school for the
purpose of classifying it in a grade was instituted by the late Education Officer.
All of the primary schools are co-educational.
4. Stafing of Primary Schools.
The number of Teachers provided in each school in any one year is determined
by the average attendance of the previous year as follows :-
Head Teacher ...... ...... .. ...... .. ..... 25 pupils
Certificated Assistant Teacher .... ..... .... 50 "
Probationary Assistant Teacher ...... ...... ...... 40
Student Teacher ........... ...... ...... 25
Pupil Teacher ...... ...... ...... ..... 25

F. Compulsory Education.
Education is not compulsory. It would be impossible to enforce any such
regulation owing to lack of accommodation.

6. Secondary Schools.
There are two Gov.vrnment-controlled fee paying Secondary Schools onj for
boys and one for girls. There is no Secondary school inspectorate. The two
schools air controlled by their heads within the framework of general directives
and policy.
A junior fee paying school acts as a preparatory school for the two secondary
schools.
A private school, situated in Kingstown, which receives a subsidy from
Govrnment in the form of a teacher paid from Government funds, provides an
education at a secondary level.







7. Adult Education.
Women's group work, following on the dissolution of the Social Welfare
Department came under the direction of the Education Department in 1950. This
consists of work with rural women's clubs.

8. Teacher Training.
With the exception of one or two teachers trained annually in Trinidad the
Education Department is responsible for teacher training. The pupil teacher
system exists, and in 1950 a revision of the existing system was made towards the
end of the year, in which the pupil teachers went to certain centres to receive
instruction under specially selected teachers, instead of receiving instruction as
heretofore in their own schools from peripatetic supervising teachers.

9. School building.
All of the schools require renovation, or extension or rebuilding. The school
building programme as it stood in 1950 made provision for the immediate
replacement of 4 existing schools by new buildings and the erection of a new
school in Kingstown.

B. COMMENTS ON POLICY AND CURRENT DEVELOPMENT.
Some outstanding problems of the present system of Education in St. Vincent
centre around (1) The dilapidated and overcrowded nature of most of the schools
giving rise to an urgent need for more and better school buildings. (2) The
continuance of the pupil teacher system giving rise to an urgent need for better
trained teachers. (3) The general disgruntlement among primary school teachers
chiefly, but among secondary school teachers also, with regard to salary scales
and status.
(4) The lack of properly trained specialist teachers in woodwork, domestic
science, agriculture and visual methods.
(5) The general need for a reassessment of the content of primary school
education with a view to relating it more adequately to present and future needs.
(6) The urgent need for the provision of suitable text books-suitable in
content and in price-for use in the primary schools.
(7) The difficulty of obtaining properly qualified secondary school teachers
especially in Science and Mathematics.
(8) The need for prosecuting a more active policy with regard to adult or mass
education.
Current and Future policy and development in St. Vincent must necessarily
concern itself with these problems, all of which have been to varying extent under
consideration by the Department during 1950.
(1) The use of landcrete blocks in the construction of the new school at
Barrouallie, and the employment of a new and much more open design for the
building, have resulted in a greatly reduced cost. This type of construction
promises to cut current construction costs in wood and stone by about %2. It
represents a major contribution towards the problem of the need for more and
better school buildings.
(2) The crux of the pupil teacher problem is one of finance. Pupil teachers
are cheap. There is no fundamental difficulty involved in getting rid of the
system. The institution of an adequate teacher training course would do so in
time provided the local government could afford the increased cost of the
certificated teachers who would replace the existing pupil teachers. Current







policy during 1950 was aimed at improving the quality of the teacher training
facilities provided, and involved the assumption that the pupil teacher system
would ultimately be superseded and all pupil teachers would be replaced by
certificated teachers.
(3) Attention was paid to complaints made by the Primary School Teachers'
Association with regard to the inadequacy of their present emoluments especially
when the recent rise in the cost of living was considered. Complaints also relate
to the unfavorable position of the primary school teacher vis a vis the civil
servant with regard to both status and emoluments. Recommendations were put
up by the Department to Government in 1950 with regard to both of these points
which if accepted should be implemented in 1951 and which aim at placing the
primary school teacher on terms of full equality with the clerical service.
(4) It is hoped that the new craft centre in Kingstown will enable teachers to
be trained who will extend this work in the primary schools. The Education
Officers' conference which was held in Barbados in 1950 put forward
recommendations for the holding of a three months course in agriculture for
selected teachers to be paid for by C.D. & W. funds. An order was placed in 1950
for two film strip projectors and suitable strips.
(5 & 6) Problems five and six are necessarily related. Nothing much with
regard to these two problems was achieved in 1950, nor was much headway made
with problems 7 & 8.
In 1950 the cooked meal which it had been the custom to supply to a certain
number of children in 7 schools was replaced by a light meal consisting of skimmed
milk and biscuits.

PART III.
CHAPTER I.-LEGISLATION AND ADMINISTRATION.
(1) The Board of Education.
The Board of Education met four times during 1950; among the matters which
it considered were the following :
(a) Amendment of the Primary Schools regulations in connection with the
Classification and Efficiency Grading of Schools;
(b) a memorandum on Teacher Training prepared by the Education Officer;
(c) the Education Officer's proposal to establish Evening Classes.

(2) Legislation.
In 1950 Regulation 39 of the Regulations for Government and Assisted Primary
Schools was amended to read :
"39. Each school shall in every year be classified as of 1, 2, or 3, in
general efficiency within its grade. Any school failing to attain the 3rd class
of efficiency shall be regarded as inefficient. The recurrent failure of a
school to attain at least the 3rd class of efficiency shall make the Head
Teacher thereof liable to be proceeded against under Regulation 69, on a
charge of neglect of duly."
Legislation was passed to allow the number of Internal Scholarships awarded
in the Secondary Schools to be increased to six annually.
Regulations cited as the Bain Gray (Prizes) Regulations, 1950 were enacted to
put into operation a bequest made my the late Major William Bain Gray.
(3) Staf changes.
Mr. E. C. M. Theobalds, B.A. was promoted to be Assistant Director of Education,







Barbados, early in 1950, and Mr. C. V. D. Hadley, B.Sc. Social Welfare Officer, St.
Vincent, was seconded to act Education Officer.
(4) Visit.. i
In January, Mr. J. L. Nicol, O.B.E., Educational Adviser, Development and
Welfare Organisation visited St. Vincent, and discussed with Government and the
Board of Education the School Building Programme and proposals for a new
Teacher Training Scheme.


CHAPTER II.-FINANCE.
(1) The total expenditure on Education in 1950 from Colony funds, controlled
by the Education Department, amounted to $170,359.80 made up as follows :-

Department spent the sum of $30,207.00 from Colony funds in the service of
Education.
(3) According to returns which were received from the three religious
denominations who own the Assisted Primary Schools the non-Government
expenditure in 1950 was $1,182.04.
(4) The amounts received for tuition fees were as under :-

(6) Per Capita Costs.
The cost to Government per pupil in average attendance in primary schools
was $15.62, and in respect of each pupil in secondary schools $37.40.

CHAPTER III.-PRIMARY EDUdATION.
(1) Schools.
The number of Elementary Schools in 1950 was 38 classified into Government
Schools and Assisted Denominational Schools as follows :-
Governm ent Schools ...... ...... .. ...... ...... ..... 16
Anglican Schools ...... ...... ..... ...... ...... ...... ...... 9
Methodist Schools ...... ...... ... ... ...... ...... 11
Roman Catholic Schools ...... ...... ...... ..... .... 2

The school age extends from 5 to 15 years. Attendance is free but not
compulsory, all schools are coeducational.
The number of children enrolled was 13,591 a decrease of 127 on 1949. The
average attendance was 8,952. Small private schools exist but the Education
Department exercises no control over them.

(2) Staffing.
The number of teachers employed were 384. They consisted of :-
Head Teachers ...... ...... ... ...... ...... ...... 38
Certificated Assistant Teachers ...... ...... ...... ...... 41
Uncertificated Teachers
Probationary Assistants ...... ...... ...... ..... 25
Student Teachers ...... ...... ...... ...... .. ...... 50
Pupil Teachers (Full time and Part time) ...... ...... ...... 230
In addition there were 4 Supervising Teachers, 1 Handcraft Instructor and 1
Physical Recreation Instructor.
The minimum academic qualification for certification is the possession of the
Cambridge School Certificate of a British University Examinations Board or the
candidate must have passed a local examination considered to be of equivalent
standard. In addition candidates must pass a local examination in professional
subjects.
The ratio of teachers in charge of classes to pupils in the elementary schools
is as follows :
Head Teachers-25 pupils
Certificated Assistant Teachers-50 pupils
Uncertificated Teachers :
Probationary Assistants-40 pupils
Student Teachers-25 pupils
Pupil Teachers-25 pupils.

(3) Buildings.
All Government school buildings are maintained from Government funds. In
the Denominational schools the buildings are owned by the Denominations and
Government assists on a fifty-fifty basis with necessary repairs.
The majority of schools are grossly overcrowded and many are in urgent need
bf repair and several in need of complete rebuilding.







During the year a new school of modern design, the Richmond Hill School, was
completed in Kingstown and an additional building to the existing Anglican School
at Barrouallie was constructed. The Richmond Hill School accommodates 500,
the new Barrouallie School 360 pupils.

(4) Inspection.
During 1950 a formal inspection of each elementary school was made by the
Inspector of Schools for the purpose of placing each school in its grade of efficiency
as required by the existing regulations. This is in addition to the normal visits of
inspection.

(5) Work in the Schools.
The standard of performance is generally speaking low. Greater attention
needs to be paid to English and Arithmetic. The teaching of History and
Geography is poor consisting mostly of a hodge podge of miscellaneous and
unrelated facts. Much of the difficulty resides in the lack of suitable text books.
There is a tendency to overcrowd the curriculum with subjects. Subjects such as
Elementary Science and Nature Study are purely book" subjects-practical work
being nearly non-existent.

(6) Scholarships and Exhibitions.
Four scholarships to the Secondary Schools from the Primary Schools are
awarded annually. In addition, an annual scholarship is awarded by the
Municipality of Kingstown, and at various periods the Religious Denominations,
local organizations and private individuals award scholarships tenable at the
Government Secondary Schools.

(7) Anderson Cups Competition. This competition took place for the first
time in 1950. It is a competition in Oral and Written English for Cups donated by
Mr. R. M. Anderson, M.B.E. a resident of Kingstown, St. Vincent. The successful
schools were the Questelles Government, Evesham Methodist, South Rivers
Methodist, Gomea Methodist and Lowmans (Leeward), Anglican.

CHAPTER IV.-SECONDARY EDUCATION.
(1) Secondary Schools.
There are two Government Secondary Schools. The Grammar School for
boys and the Girls' High School. Both schools enter candidates for the Cambridge
School Certificate and Higher School Certificate examinations.
The number of pupils enrolled in 1950 was as follows :-
Grammar School ...... ..... ..... ...... ..... 0
Girls' High School ..... ..... ...... ..... ..... .....
Considerable difficulty exists in obtaining graduates for staffing these schools.
It would be most beneficial if some uniformity in the salaries paid to the secondary
school masters of the Government-controlled schools throughout the Windwards
and Leewards could be obtained.
Domestic Science is taught at the Girls' High School but no Science.
The Grammar School possesses a laboratory and Science Is taken to Higher
School Certificate Standard. Woodwork is also taught. The school possesses a
Cadet Corps and a Scout Troop; and the Girls' High School a Gu ld Cf






(2) External Examinations.
18 boys and 12 girls were entered by the two schools for the Cambridge School
Certificate examination in 1950, and 8 boys and 4 girls for the Higher School
Certificate examination. The successes were as follows:
Boys Girls
Cambridge School Certificate 12 11
Higher School Certificate 5 4
5 boys took the School Certificate Examination as private entrants but they
*ere unsuccessful. Of 11 girls who entered as private candidates 7 were successful
The one girl who entered for Higher School Certificate as a private candidate was
successful.

(3) Private Schools.
One private school exists-the Intermediate School-(formerly Immanuel
Institute) which is partly assisted by Government and which enters pupils for the
Cambridge School Certificate examination.

CHAPTER V.-TECHNICAL TRAINING.
Such technical training as takes place in the colony is primarily vocational
and is provided by various Government Departments. There are no courses
provided by the Education Department.
2. The Agricultural Department provides a two year residential course at its
experimental station at Camden Park. Twenty young men to date have been
trained. The scheme started in 1945 and is still in operation.
The course of training which lasts for two years is designed to give training in
those arts, crafts and elementary sciences which are necessary parts of the
equipment of an enlightened peasant farmer. Throughout the course emphasis is
laid upon manual and practical training as well as theoretical training in the
lecture room.
3. The Medical Department provides courses for the following: Sanitary
Inspectors, Dispensers, Hospital Nurses, Midwives, Public Health Nurses.
These are all trained locally for examinations leading to local certificates.
4. The Public Works Department trains annually six Mechanical apprentices,
and six Carpentry apprentices.
In 1950 they also had two Surveyor apprentices in training.
4. The Electricity Department keeps four apprentices in constant practical
training in diesel engine maintenance and operation, switch board attendance,
house and line wiring and telephony. While there is necessity for greater technical
training, it has been possible in this way to get a few fairly well trained boys into
the Industry.
A former member of the staff is now pursuing further studies at Puerto Rico.

CHAPTER VI.-UNIVERSITY AND OTHER POST SECONDARY EDUCATION INCLUDING OVERSEAS
SCHOLARSHIPS.
The Island Scholarship : A scholarship is awarded triennially to the boy or
girl who comes first in the Higher School Certificate examination to proceed to a
recognized British University for the purpose of becoming qualified in some
approved profession or occupation.







In 1950 the following scholarship winners were pursuing courses :
Name Course University
0. Cordice Medicine Aberdeen
R. H. Cox Medicine Glasgow
A. C. K. Antrobus-the 1950 Winner expects to take a course in Medicine at
the University College of the West Indies, Jamaica.
Other students are pursuing degree and other courses at Universities and
Colleges abroad. The various fields of study include Accountancy, Agriculture,
Education, Nursing, Medicine and Veterinary Surgery; these courses have been
financed by Colonial Development and Welfare, British Council and local funds.

CHAPTER VII.-TRAINING OF TEACHERS.
No college exists for the training of teachers in St. Vincent or within the
Windward Islands, in consequence it has been the custom to send annually two
teachers for training to the Government Training College for Teachers in
Trinidad.
In 1950 three teachers were in training at this institution. Pupil teachers are
trained locally by the head teachers of the schools in which they work, and also
by certain peripatetic instructors known as Supervising Teachers specially
appointed for this purpose.

Teachers' Certificates.
Regulation 73 of the Regulations for Government and Assisted Primary
Schools states the conditions under which Teachers' Certificates can be obtained
as follows :-
TEACHERS' CERTIFICATES. Teachers' Certificates may be granted by the
Governor as follows :-
(1) Certificates of the Third Class: To Probationers who have reached
the age of twenty years and have either-
(a) satisfactorily completed a first-year course of training in a
recognized training college, or
(b) have passed a local examination in Practical and Theoretical
Teaching, Physiology and Hygiene, and 'Nature Study or General
Science or Biology together with one other subject chosen from
the following: Vocal Music, Drawing, Domestic Science (for
women) Manual Training (for men), provided that the Education
Officer may grant exemption from further examination in any of
the foregoing subjects if the candidate had previously obtained a
pass in them in the Cambridge School Certificate or other
examination of equivalent or higher standard.
(2) Certificates of the Second Class : To persons--
(a) who have satisfactorily completed a two-year course of training at
a recognized training college, or
(b) who have held a Third Class Certificate for a period of five years
during which period they have given service to the satisfaction of
the Education Officer.
(3) Certificates of the First Class: To persons who have held a Second
Class Certificate for a period of five years during which they have
given service to the satisfaction of the Education Officer in the capacity







of Head Teacher, provided that in the case of teachers who had spent
two years in a recognized training college, the period of satisfactory
service shall be reduced to three years."
In 1950 twenty-two persons passed the local Teachers' Certificate Examination.
Twenty-nine Pupil Teachers were successful in the Pupil Teachers'
Examinations.

The twelve schools taken in alphabetical order shown above serve to illustrate
the grossly overcrowded nature of practically all the existing primary schools in
the colony. When in addition to this the dilapidated condition of many of the
buildings, the lack of adequate numbers of desks and benches, and the scarcity of
books is considered, the discomforts and difficulties attendant on teaching in such
schools can well be imagined. The situation is rendered even more gloomy by the
rapid rise in the population.
It would appear that any school building programme which the colony could
afford could never by itself take care of this situation, over a reasonable space of
time, and that other methods of dealing with it will be required such as, for
example, by raising the school entrance' age, or by teaching in shifts.

2) Playing Fields.
Most primary schools lack adequate playing fields. The mountainous nature
of the island and the need for using flat land for agricultural purposes since it is
usually the best land contribute to the situation.

Seating Accommodation and Desks.
There continues to be a shortage of desks and benches. By using a simplified
design introduced by the Department in 1950 it is hoped to cheapen the cost of
providing desk and bench accommodation in the future.






Gardens.
23 schools are provided with school gardens. However quite inadequate use is
made of these gardens and it is questionable whether the time spent on them
would not be more profitably employed in teaching English or Arithmetic.

Lavatories.
All of the primary schools are provided with lavatories-mainly pit-lavatories.
In the new schools bore-hole latrines are built while the new Richmond Hill School
in Kingstown has flush-lavatories.

Nutrition Scheme.
In 1950 this extended to only 7 schools. In each of these schools about 30
children chosen by the Head Teacher as being necessitous were given a glass of
skimmed milk with one or two food yeast biscuits each school day.

CHAPTER IX.-SOCIAL AND MORAL WELFARE.
1. Moral and Religious Instruction.
Religious teaching forms a part of the curriculum in all Primary Schools. In
the Secondary Schools Scripture is taught in the lower forms and is a subject
which can be taken for the School Certificate Examination.

2. School Games.
Organised games form a part of the routine of the Secondary Schools. Cricket,
Football, Netball and Tennis are played.
The appointment of a trained Physical Recreation Instructor has enabled tht
Department to start organised games and physical instruction in the primary
schools in Kingstown, in time this will be extended to the rural schools.
Mr. J. D. Ramjohn of Trinidad presented a Cup for annual competition iA
Football by the three public Primary Schools in Kingstown. The first winner wal
'he Kingstown Methodist School.

3. Scouts and Guides.
Scouting is not a very active movement but Guiding is well organised and
vigorous.
There are thirteen Scout Troops and nine Girl Guide Companies. Of these
five Scout Troops are associated with schools and three Guide Companies.

CHAPTER X.-ADULT EDUCATION AND MASS EDUCATION.
1. University College of the West Indies-Extra Mural Department.
The establishment of Extra Mural Work in St. Vincent has progressed
somewhat slowly.
In spite of difficulties, however, the Extra Mural Department succeeded in
running three short courses of eight weeks each during 1950 for which the average
attendance was 55%.
The Resident Tutor for the Windward Islands visited the island twice during
the year and lectured in Kingstown, Georgetown and Barrouallie.
In November 1950, the Resident Tutor for Trinidad and Tobago visited St.
Vincent and lectured in Kingstown and Georgetown.







2. British Council.
Literature, posters, photographs, films and film strips supplied by the British
Council were distributed as usual to the schools and public.

3. Women's Groups.
Women's group work which was formerly taken care of by the Social Welfare
Department is now under the direction of the Organiser of Women's Work an
officer who was formerly attached to the Social Welfare Department.
The work consists in the organisation of social and recreational activities as
well as the provision of classes in handcrafts.
At the end of 1950 there were thirteen clubs including the Bequia Women's
Club, three of these being Girls' Clubs. There is a Thrift Club attached to each of
the Women's Clubs and one of the Girls' Clubs. The total membership is
approximately 350.
The clubs were visited as often as possible by the Organiser of Women's
Activities and the Housecraft Instructress and on two occasions the Handcraft
Instructress visited the Bequia Group in order to give tuition in Straw Work.
Instruction was given to the groups in the following throughout the year-
Business Procedure and Club Management, Drama, Country Dancing, Games,
Programme Planning, Gardening, Crochet, embroidery, dressmaking, cooking,
knitting, straw work, general knowledge and first aid.
The Clubs at present form the St. Vincent Federation of Women, which is
affiliated to the Associated Countrywomen of the World with Head Office in
London.
The Annual General Meeting and Rally of the St. Vincent Federation of
Women was held on 6th September, 1950, when approximately 120 representatives
attended from all parts of the Island and from Bequia. There was a Sports
Competition after the Annual Meeting at which His Honour delivered an address
and a Concert at night at which each group contributed an item. This was a very
successful meeting and Rally.
The Women's Clubs carry on their meetings weekly through officers elected
from and by the members, there are no paid leaders. They depend on the
Education Office for guidance, advice, stimulus, literature, plays and instruction in
Drama, songs, lectures, games, physical exercises, folk dances, music, films,
handcraft, housecraft, matter for their study periods, tuition in Business procedure
and Club management, occasional visits and everything necessary for their
upkeep.

4. Mass Zducation.
Mass Education can hardly be said to exist, however, the Public Relations
Officer on occasions gives talks illustrated by film strips which are designed
generally to inform the public on matters of current interest or importance.
