In 1913 Miss Kleyn became principal and a year later, the lighthouse was built and the First World War began. The war also brought increased activity to the Wireless Station and soon romance was in the air as Japie Boltman caught the attentions of Miss Kleyn. In 1919 she married Japie and left the school.
Many children apart from those of the Wireless Station Staff, had a long way to walk to and from school, and apparently no classes were held on very wet days.
