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. 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
  • army cadet corps result of rifle shooting
  • winners of scholarships and bursaries

Gazettes are 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.

The Queensland Education Gazettes were issued once a month, this CD is a compilation of 5 years worth of these Gazettes from 1906-1910.

The CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of each years worth of issues. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
