In 1848, the Board of National Education was established by a New South Wales Act (11 Vic 48) with responsibility for administration of the National school system. Following the separation of Queensland from New South Wales, members of the Board of National Education for Queensland were appointed in February 1860, but in October 1860 the Board was replaced by the Board of General Education established under "The Education Act of 1860".
