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:
Published by the governments, and used as a means of communication throughout the education department - these are a useful resource of information for historians, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.
Listing the names of thousands of teachers, together with their position and school, you will find details on those who were admitted to the education department, as well as those who were transferred, resigned or dismissed. Details of schools opening, changing name and closing are also included.
