THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, JULY 2, 1920.
IN THE MAUI COUNTY SCHOOLS
Close Of Wm. &
Mrs. Alice S. Pillans' School enter
tains parents and friends.
The closing exercises of the Willi
am and Mary Alexander School of
which Mrs. Pillans is the principal
were given last Saturday evening to
a large and enthusiastic audience of
parents and friends. Mrs. Hansen of
Haiku, the Rev. Henry Judd of Hono
lulu, and Dr. and Mrs. Tate of Lahaina
were special guests at a school dinner
which preceded the exercises.
The work of Mrs. Pillans and the
fine progress manifested by the pupls
has been a topic of favorable comment
among the friends of the school for
some time and the program presented
Saturday evening by the scholars was
a revelation as well as a delight to
the parents present. The exercises
were splendidly given and represented
to some extent the work of the school
during the year.
It was not a specially arranged pro
gram Dut a reproduction ratner ot a
school session. Mrs. Pillans' theory
in teaching is to train the child in self
expression and the total lack of self
consciousness and the healthy spirit
in which the children partook of the
games and recited their pieces was a
subject of commendation. There is
increased interest in the school and
nert year's enrollment will probably
exceed that of former years. Appli
cations have been received fom plares
as far distant as Lahaina.
At the close of the exercises punch
and cookies were served to pupils,
parents an'd friends. The exercises
were given out in the open air on the
school grounds, which were decorated
with colored lanterns. An object of
interest was the representation of an
Indian wigwam used by the children
in rendering Hiawatha. The complete

THE ATTRACTIVE SCHOOLROOM
By Vaughan MacCaughey.
In my visits to schools in various
parts of the Territory, I have been
particularly impressed by the large
number of attractive schoolrooms. I
am referring now to the pictures, de
corations and other ornaments pre
pared; by the teachers and pupils them
selves. In some rooms all of the pic
tures are framed in mountings of
wood, lauhala, cardboard, etc., that the
pupils themselves have made. Cabinets
of natural history objects occur in
other rooms. Home-like curtains at
the windows, made and stencilled by
the girls, often give the room a cheer
ful atmosphere. Pictures and friezes
upon the upper portions of the black
board, in colored chalk, are noted here
and there. Some rooms take pride in
exhibiting their primary handwork,
paper modelling, and colored maps. Of
special note are the many pictures,
cut from magazines, representing
great Americans and great scenes in
American history. Charts of animals,
birds, flowers, and agricultural sub
jects are also perennial sources of in
terest. Hawaii can well be proud of her
many attractive schoolrooms. The
schoolroom is the intellectual cradle
at Hawaii's future. The atmosphere
of joy, of cheerful homelikeness, of
spontaneous activity, is a school
room's greatest asset. This means
happiness and good schoolwork. ,
