Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    1. Consult the Consignment Details for the volume containing the date range for which information is required.

    2. Consult the alphabetical index at the front of each volume for the number and / or page of items relating to a specific school.

  • Function / Content
    This series was used to provide a record of the following of procedures for the appointment of members of Local Committees for Common Schools. Details given are the number and name of the school, whether the appointment was for a new committee or as an alteration to a current one, the correspondence reference number, the dates of submission to the Board of Education and its decision regarding the matter (see VPRS 899 Agenda Books and VPRS 894 Minute Books), the details of dates of submission to the Chief Secretary, for publication in the Government Gazette and local newspapers and of notification to the committee member with any remarks.

    An alphabetical list by place name at the front of unit 1 gives a listing of school names, the name of the newspaper in which local notices were published and dates when advertisements were sent.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Entries are in consecutive number order which is chronological.

    Both units have an index by number of school giving school name and reference to the pages upon which references to that school occur. In unit 1 this is given as a fraction: the top number is the page upon which the reference occurs and the bottom number the running number of entry. Entries in unit 2 are given the running number of the entry only.
