AKAROA DISTRICT HIGH SCHOOL.
ANNUAL PICNIC AT WAINUI,
The annual picnio of tbe Akaroa District High School was held at Wainui on Tuesday in beautiful weather. Owing to tbe s.s. Cygnet having been disabled, it was decided to convey the children and their parents to Wainui by oil launch, and ruo.-tof the launches were called into rtqui-ition toconvey tbe large party of picnickers to their destination. A most enjoyable day was spent at Wainui, when sports were held under the supervision of the members of tbe committee and teachers.
On the return journey one small boy got a ducking at tbe Wainui wharf, as the consequence of bis being too keen to board tbe' oil launch Toi Toi, but otherwise there was no mishap.
