MAKINO SCHOOL Prize Giving - 1909

Journal by ngairedith

written about 1897 ... MAKINO, a pretty little rural village situate by road some four miles north-east of Feilding, is not wanting in attractiveness. Tourists viewing the Manchester Block are wont to drive or ride out this way, all the surroundings being naturally picturesque. Gaining the Mangaone Saddle, capital views of the fertile valley of the Makino are attainable. It is all studded with brightly-hued farm lands and foreign plantations, through which peep gaily-painted cot and villa, and the beautiful homes of the wealthier squatters.


4 March 1909 MAKINO SCHOOL PICNIC & PRIZE GIVING,

... The annual picnic and prize distribution at the Makino school was held yesterday, and proved a great success. There was quite a large gathering of friends and visitors from Feilding and the surrounding district. In the morning the prizes were distributed by Mr F. Y. Lethbridge (Frank Yates Lethbridge 1853-1915), who spoke a few words of congratulation and encouragement to the scholars.
After the children had received their prizes, they assembled in Mr Hart's paddock close by, where the day was spent in racing, jumping, and games of various kinds. The weather was all that could be desired and the children spent a very enjoyable day. The thanks of the committee, children and teachers are due to those ladies and gentlemen who worked so willingly to make the picnic such a success.

The prizes were won by the following scholars:-
