THE NEW YEAR AT
THE HIGH SCHOOL
The Kauai High & Grammar
School will open on Monday, Sep
tember 13th. Already a number
of pupils from other parts of the
Island have found places to board
in Lihue and will be in attendance
the coming year.
During the summer two bunga
lows have been built, and the
equipment of the main building
has been improved. Two new
teachers are expected; one to take
charge of the commercial depart
ment and the other to teach irj the
Two years' work will be offered
in the High School, following the
curriculum for secondary schools
as approved by the Commissioners
of Education at their last meeting
This makes the work of the high
schools throughout the Territory
uniform and provides courses to
meet the requirements of any of
the mainland colleges or universi
ties. The commercial and general
courses are modelled after those of
the best preparatory and business
schools of the United States.
It is very probable that manual
training will be offered the com
ing year, under the direction oft
tht new vocational instructor Mr. j
Allen Creevy. This will be open
to all boys of the school.
Athletics will have an important
place in the school. The tests of
the Playground and Recreation
Association of America wiil b e
made and the children graded ac
cording to their respective abilities.
As they are able to pass the efficir
ency tests of the Association, tly
records will be sent to the New
York headquarters and the regular
Association badge awarded. This
eystem is the most comprehensive
of any yet devised, and trains to
wards a standard that is simple,
sensible and safe. It also has the
advantage of including all t h e
children instead of selecting only,
those who are naturally athletic.
The girls' athletics and play are
also being planned on the lines
followed by the Recreation Asso
ciation of America. The most
important advances in education
are being made along these lines
and every effort will be made 'to
keep in touch with these move
ments. The Department of Public In
struction is giving the school its
hearty support and co-operating
in every way to make it a succes.'
The Supervisors have been vcr
prompt in providing for the needs
of the school, and the community
has given many proofs of ifs in -terest.
It is hoped that the scope fc
and usefulness of the school will
b e greatlv enlarged during the
year of 1915-16.
