Willi tin? departure of Mr. Avery
lust week, Kaimi lost one of its
most valued citizens. Mr. Avery
came to Ahw tliro .vun.ru nno to
open tin Kauai High School, and
the woll-chtnhlished iwsition of this
institution in tliu eommunitv and
its steady growth attest to his ex
pedient work. lJeginning with but
eight pupils in its High School de
partment, the school has grown un
til it now numbers thirty-three.
With the addition of a senior class
next year, the four year course
standard will have been reached,
and the number of pupils still fur
ther increased. The select grammar
grades arc also under Mr. Avery's
dare and the number of pupils there
has increased in tho three years
from twenty-four to forty-tAVO.
Tho academic work done 'hrts
been excellent and a high standard
lias been maintained. Children in
this school hac attained high
grades, and in going on to other
Schools have found their work equal
to any done in the Territory. It
has been demonstrated that chil
dren may remain at home on Kau
ai and secure as good an education
as those who are flocking to Hono
lulu in search of advanced learn
ing. Gardening and manual train
' ing have been taught, and during
the last year there has been mili
tary drill for the boys. A com
mercial department, supplied with
six typo-writers and a mimeograph,
has been developed and maintained.
The labratory has been fully 'equip
ped, and about 8500 worth of books
have been placed in tho library,
part of these purchased by the -Department,
part of them private
