Utuwai school

Schools for rural children were usually among the first buildings in country townships. From 1877 attendance at primary school was compulsory. These pupils, all clothed in smart garb including caps and berets, stand outside their schoolhouse at Utuwai, near Āpiti in northern Manawatū, in 1903.
