School Notes

How does attending a junior high school that teaches trade skills and home economics sound to you? In 1921, Waimea Junior High School offered boys courses in mechanical drawing, pipe fitting and soldering, and practical electrical work. For girls, the junior high school offered cooking classes, preserving classes, textiles, home making, and balancing of food values.

The Garden Island (1919-1922) and The Maui News (1905-1921) reported about these course offerings in their “School Notes” section. In both newspapers, the “School Notes” would include local public school news (e.g. honor roll, field trips, school statistics, and commencement) and news articles and letters by students.
