Educational — The Lytton Street Public School,


The Lytton Street Public School, Feilding, was established in the year 1901, and has accommodation for 180 pupils. The school started with an attendance of ninety, but the present roll number is 250, with an average attendance of 200, and as this is considerably in excess of the school accommodation about sixty pupils are taught in a separate building. The playground comprises an area of three acres, with football and cricket fields, and also gardens cultivated by the scholars. There is a cadet corps with a membership of forty-five, constituting No. 8 Company of No. 1 Battalion of the Wanganui District Cadets, with Mr. H. C. Stewart in command. There is also a football team (which has the honour of holding the local championship), and a cricket team. The head-master, Mr. H. C. Stewart, is assisted by one male teacher, and three lady assistants.
