The above picnic was htld in idail weather yesterday. There was a good attendance of Wainui people and from the surroundin? Bays and Akaroa:

Before refreshments were handed round, ] the chairman, Mr G. Mulcock, called on Mr. j G. Armstrong to address those present. i In his remarks, Mr Armstrong.said they were all sorry to bse Mr Mulcock, and also their teacher, Miss Ormandy. He had known Mr' Mulcoak for some time, and appreciated him as a pnbl'c man.- Ho be. lieved that in public life they required men who were fearless in their opinions and had the courage of those opinions. He noped that the next person to fill his position on the School Committee would be appreciated as much *bs Mr Mulcock bad been. It seemed that Miss Ormandy had done good work for the school which had been much appreciated by the parents of tV children, hoped their new teacher vould be as as successful and give as muoh satisfaation. The chairman then asked the Key. Julius to present the prizes'. Key, Julius said he was always very pleased to be present with the children at their annual prize giviu?. In commenting on -the prizes, be thought they wore the finest lot he had ever had the pleasure of presenting to them. He also sail he was sorry to hear tbey were losing Miss Oimandy and Mr Mulcock. Mr Mulcock bad been a greater helper in whatever was for the good of Wainui, both in the sohool and church, and he personally would miss him very much. It was very evident that Miss Ormandy had done good work f r the school. He referred to the school attend' ance—that three of the pupils had a landed every day for the past two years, which spoke well for the attendance, and he ed the next teacher would have the sari: i gojd results. There was no doubt th *, what children learnt in their youth was i itairei in life, and it was imperative the i-achers should bave the full confidence if the ohildren.

After partaking of refreshments everyone adjourned to the Keoreation Groan'. 1 various sports were indulged in.'th- handicapping being done by Mr C. Pool. Messrs W. Parkin, L. Wright, w.
