The primary role of education gazettes was to provide instructions and information to the staff of government schools. The education departments in Australian states were very large organizations with schools spread across the colony/state from the most remote settlements to the inner city. They were large employers of a highly structured hierarchical government department headquartered in capital cities and to maintain authority needed to have effective lines of communication and the gazette provided this.
For historians the Queensland Education Gazettes are a great resource of information if you are after information on either Schools or School Teachers in Queensland. You will find individual teachers and staff named in sections headed:
- staff deployment: admissions, transfers, left the service
- tenderers for works accepted
- teachers college students
- winners of scholarships and bursaries
Generally issued once a month, the Education Gazettes were published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.
