Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Consult the alphabetical index for references to specific places or schools.

  • Function / Content
    This series contains a summary record of applications for the establishment of new state primary schools. There are indications that this was the third volume used for this purpose. A preceding record of the same nature may be seen in VPRS 897 Register of Applications for Aid to New Schools and Applications for New Schools.

    In the main body of the register is given the name of the application, the date, the registered correspondence number, the name of the sender and the subject. Up to c 1920, where the name of the application is annotated with a number in red, this is an indication of previous correspondence with respect to the same place. Some reference is given to alternative names. Some of the papers relating to applications may be found in VPRS 3860 Miscellaneous Applications for the Establishment of a State School.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Entries are in chronological order. A rough alphabetical index gives the name of the place or district, reference numbers consisting of the year over the application number for that year (eg 25 over 73 would mean the 73rd application for 1925), in a number of cases the application number and the eventual roll (or school) number.
