On the new Lahainaluna buildings, 1905.

Pertaining to Lahainaluna.

The school these days is not of that stature of days past, in its functions, and the condition of the dorms, and where they are to be taught.

The school this day, [something here seems to be missing], like something the former principal [Alatau Tamchiboulac Atkinson] stated in his speech on the day the opening of the buildings, “Lahainaluna school is the college for the poor.”

Those words are true, and it is still so today.

These are beautiful buildings, and the rooms are supplied with beds and pillows; the children are to supply a pillowcase, and sheets, and a blanket to sleep with; they have no need to worry about a mosquito net, for each room is furnished with metal mosquito screening, and the lights are electric.

The school begins on Monday, the 4th of September, 1905, and it is desired that the students arrive earlier than that, and if some come late, they will be left without a room.

So too with the new students, arrive before the beginning of school to receive a room. Students from 14 years old and up are wanted.

The Principal,
C. A. McDonald.

Opening of Punahou School, 1842.


On the 11th of this July, this school began; there were 5 boarders and 12 day schoolers. Its work is currently progressing well.

On the 12th of July, Emerson folks left for Lahainaluna to live.

This is the continuation of the previous post, showing the students who entered Lahainaluna by year, where they came from, and where they moved to after leaving. It also shows how long they stayed, and what they were doing since leaving the school.

The lists are long, so here are the images at least:

O Students of Lahainaluna who have graduated and scattered all over Hawaii, here below is the Roster of the College from 1831 to 1854; look and see who is living, and who is dead now, and tell us who is still living to this day and their occupation, and their nature, and how they are living; it will be printed in the Hae so that we can know of the fruit of that tall and shady tree.

More news out of Lahainaluna, 1874.

[Found under: “Local News”]

Life is saved.—On the 31st of Oct., an old man from Auwaiawao went to Lahainalalo to go shop, and when he was returning in the evening, it was dark and he reached Lahainaluna; the rain kept falling and the wind kept blowing; the old man wandered here and there until Paupau, and he was numbed with cold and fell face down to the ground and slept. In the morning, it was a Sunday, a student from Lahainaluna was walking up and spotted this thing, come to find out it was a man; when he went to fetch him, the man couldn’t speak, or walk, his eyes were blackened and he couldn’t see. The boy went to carry him, but because he couldn’t, he went to get friends from Auwaiawao, and they carried the man back to his home. That is how he survived.

Lahainaluna School news, 1867.

Items from Lahainaluna College.

Crops.—The plants are thriving in front of the school house and the student’s dormitory, as well as in the back; those being: bananas, gourds, and trees as well, such as the pride of India, and kukui, which are all also thriving; it is very pleasant to look at, and the barrenness will perhaps be no more. But this is a considerably new thing.

The sugar cane patch.—The cane patch seems to be growing well, it is on the left side of the road going down to Lahainalalo.

The taro patches.—The teachers and land supervisors are putting effort into working the students in the patches to increase food so that they will not face problems with hunger. The patches being worked are large, and the loi that were not used before are being worked, those being the ones below the river, and the ones above it are starting to be worked (the ones at the school), and the farming is going well, and the taro production will perhaps increase in this upcoming year.

The canal.—The new auwai is being started under the direction of Mr. Andrews. This auwai runs next to the pali, and it’s source is in the district of Auwaiawao; it is called “Pipikapau” and the water will reach the dry patches here above. The students will be truly blessed by this auwai.

The anatomy book (“Anatomia”).—The College is lacking a volume of this type, but it is not totally without, there are a few; although there were a great many in the past years, this year, they are without the printed book, and the second class is being taught from a handwritten book. They are terribly lacking.

Human bones.—On Saturday, the 20th of this month, the second class went to Makaiwa, close to Kekaa, and bags were filled with bones so that they could see the kinds of bones as in Anatomia.

Lantern slides.—Pictures were projected by our instructor, S. E. Bishop, on the night of the 24th of this month in the Church; all the students gathered together, and also there were some of the teachers.
The activities that night were fine.

Joint school.—Every Wednesday, all the grades join together, from the 1st class to the 4th, and the 1st class checks the mistakes in what is written by the other classes in response to the questions given by Andrews. They join together at 10 o’clock on every Wednesday.

The enrollment.—There are 103 students at this school. And Andrews teaches the students at 5 o’clock in the evening every Wednesday, and perhaps the children are acquiring this knowledge.

Break.—The school might go on vacation during the month of December, for a month. This is what we hear from the President, whether it be true or not.
