Drawings done by children of the Maori school at Ruatoki. Subjects for some of them are taken from Maori legends—in particular, the legend of Hinemoa, who in Ruatoki is called Hinetemoa. Others show modern subjects, but all are drawn with great vigour and feeling for line. Te Ao Hou would welcome more drawings from children for publication. It is to be hoped some of the boys and girls who now show such proficiency in art will be able to carry on their skill in later life.
