Report of the Trustees of the Waerenga-a-hika Native
School Trust for the Triennial Period to June 30th, 1879.
“The Trustees of the Waerenga-a-hika Native School Trust beg leave to report that as appears by the accompanying Balance Sheet, the debt which has for a long period encumbered the Estate has now been completely paid off, and that besides the sums which have from time to time been paid towards the support of the Native Girls' School at Napier, £550 in all, there is a balance now in hand of £950. The Native Girls' School with 50 pupils is in a satisfactory and efficient state, one of the girls having gained a scholarship in the late examinations conducted under the authority of the School Board of the District.
“The Trustees have formed no definite plan as yet for the disposal of the balance in hand, though keeping in view the expediency of establishing another school as soon as it may be practicable to do so.
“The annual income for the next three years will be £400.
On behalf of the Trustees,
