Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    For a listing of the records held in this series, refer to Consignments within the Accessing the Records tab in this report.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of newsletters and bulletins produced by regional offices of the Education Department and successors. These newsletters were produced primarily for an audience within the region being mainly teachers, school principals, Department staff, parents and school council members.

    Most of the series consists of newsletters which were bound into annual or chronologically arranged volumes by the Ministry of Education Library. (Binding orders are found within a number of the volumes indicating that the newsletters had previously been maintained either separately or bound within lever arch folders.) Some units consist of loose newsletters which were found in magazine boxes and it was assumed these were intended to be bound. Some of these particular units include newsletters produced by schools from within the particular region and these have been retained.

  • Recordkeeping System
    This series has been arranged alphabetically by the name of the region and then chronologically by the date of issue. Gaps are apparent within some of these volumes.

    The spines of all of the bound volumes contain the generic term "Region News", the name of the region and the year or years of publication covered by the volume. Spines of some volumes also include the range of issue numbers.

    The title of the newsletters produced by the various regions was subject to, often frequent, change and this has not been tracked in the listing produced by PROV.
