District of Random

Board of Education: Rev. A. Tulk, Chairman; John Vey, Edmund Seward, James Drover, Stephen Smith, William Balsom, James Dodge.
Population 591; Grant $283.53

Visitation and Inspection:
The only schools open in this district for the year were those at Hearts’ Ease and Hodge’s Cove under one teacher. It was found impossible to find teachers from outside to go on such small salaries as were offered. By closing down for a time, the money saved enabled the Board to engage teachers or N. Bight and Long Beach for a year. Special arrangements were made for Hodge’s Cove for August and September.
