This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 15 February 1958, page 8: "Not many children of the present age have the chance to be present at the official opening of their own school. Here the first pupils of Ross Intermediate stand in silence, despite the intense heat, while the Minister of Education (Mr. Skoglund) officially declared the new school open."
