Kamehameha Schools.

The Kamehameha Schools held their exhibition on this past Friday, starting with the Boys’ Primary School. On that day the exhibition of that school was held, and on this past Monday for the Girls’ School.

On Monday afternoon, the boys’ senior class held a tree planting to memorialize the days of living in hardship at this home of learning, and present were those invited to watch the activities. The tree that they planted was a kamani, and the area where it was planted was upland of their chapel.

Later that night, speeches and songs were performed by the Girls’ School in their chapel. These were speeches by the students graduating this year. There were eight girls: Edith Leilani Dunn, Annie Claire Davidson, Hattie Hiilani Jones, Victoria Kekaihaakuloulani Mahikoa, Iwakilaukapu Augusta Scholtz, Hannah Keakalani Sheldon, Hakamaikalani Wongkong [Hakamaikalani Wong Kong] and Henrietta Weloulani Scholtz.
