The extracts read:-
"The playground seriously needs treatment. There is no urinal for the infants. The Channel for the urinal for the boys is badly laid. There is a pipe through the wall of the lavatory, but no connection has been made yet with the main that passes the front of the playground.
The coal-house door is broken down. Some of the desks are broken; others are unstable; and several - mainly those in the middle room - are extremely unsatisfactory in various respects."
