  • Function / Content
    From 1904 the A N A (Australian Natives Association) awarded a prize for the most improved school garden in each Inspectorate. The gardens and grounds of each school were judged and ranked by the District Inspector with, until the time of World War I, First or Second Class certificates also being recommended for each school.

    This series contains correspondence each year from the District Inspector with the recommendations for the winner of the competition. For a number of years , there is a summary of the winners for the whole state and the recommendations that these be accepted and transmitted to the ANA. There is also a small amount of correspondence from the Association regarding the competition.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Correspondence is arranged in chronological order.
