TERRACE SCHOOL, Wellington - Attendance Certificates, December 1911
... school info taken from the following link ...
the Terrace School Thorndon, Wellington
... was built at 20 Fitzherbert Terrace in 1878 by Mrs SWAINSON.
Three years before the BEAUCHAMP girls entered, Miss Mary Anne Swainson had taken charge of it, but she was not the stuff of which Head Mistresses are made; and the following year she engaged Mrs. Henry SMITH as Head Mistress.
Mr. Robert PARKER taught music — though Miss Swainson, herself, led the singing— and Eva BUTTS taught elocution, arithmetic and geography.
Two of these served Katherine MANSFILED as characters later.
All four were distinctive individuals; and as afterward at Queen's College in London
— Kathleen Beauchamp (later Mansfield) was more interested in their individuality than she was in the instruction they dispensed. She easily pierced through to their “secret” as she sat in the Form, gazing up at them while they taught
