Children haven’t enough to do” is to be the topic at the Fernie P.T.A. meeting to be held in the school cafeteria at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20.

Children haven’t enough to do is what is said on the one hand and on the other hand some parents are complaining about their children’s lives being crowded too much with activities, extra-curricula and otherwise. It will be the object of the panel of speakers to enquire into the extent of underactivity or over-activity and its respective harmful effects, mental or physical.
