I.-Rules and RegulATIONS of the COMMISSIONERS OF I Rules and National Education, and Directions for making Regulations of
Commissioneri. APPLICATION for Aid towards the BUILDING or School-HOUSES, or for the SUPPORT OF Schools.
1.- The Commissioners grant aid towards the Building and Support of Schools of two Classes, Elementary Schools and Schools of Industry ; but they can grant aid only to a limited number of the latter, and these must be at certain distances from each other. It is an indispensable condition for aid towards a School of Industry, that a Work-room shall be annexed to it, if it be situated in a City or Town ; and if it be a Country or Rural School, that a certain quantity of land shall be provided for Garden culture.
It is, however, for the Patrons of each National School to determine whether they will make Agricultural or other industrial instruction part of the Education which it affords. It is for the Commissioners to do what they can in aid of their efforts, by having the Teachers taught the principles and practice of improved Agriculture during their Training Course, and by receiving Agricultural Pupils at the Model Farm Glasnevin. The Commissioners consider Schools for Females as of the class of Elementary Schools ; but they require that instruction be there given in Sewing, Knitting, and otber works suited to Females.
II.-48 to Government of Schools with respect to Allendunce
and Religious Instruction, 1. The ordinary School business, during which all children, of whatever denomination they may be, are required to attend, is to embrace a specified number of hours each day.
2. Opportunities are to be afforded to the Children of cach School for receiving such religious instruction as their
parents or guardians approve of.
3. The Patrons of the several Schools have the right of appointing such religious instruction as they may think proper to be given therein, provided that cach School be open to Children of all communions ; that due regard be had to parental right and authority; that, accordingly, no child be compelled to receive, or to be present at, any religious instruction to which his parents or guardians object; and that the time for giving it be so fixed, that no child shall be thereby, in effect, excluded, directly or indirectly, from the other advantages which the School affords. Subject to this, religious instruction may be given either during the fixed School-hours or otherwise.
