Information Sources


This series consists of various records of the payment of teachers' salaries. These records were kept by the Board of General Education, the Primary Instruction Department and subsequently the Education Department.

The format and content of these records vary over time. From 1870 - 1931 the format differs according to the various volumes used, such as registers, pay book ledgers, and books of pay sheets; from 1932 - 1960 all payments are recorded on double- sided pro forma cards.

The content and the method of recording payments also vary over time but entries usually include school names, the name of the teacher (or other employee), his or her classification and classification salary and various allowances; other details may include teacher transfers, leave taken, amounts for superannuation or taxation. From approximately 1926, voucher or cheque numbers for salary payments are recorded either monthly or fortnightly for either the calendar or financial year.

NOTE: From approximately 1900 pay details for other departmental employees such as office staff and school support staff are also often included, even when the pay book, for example, is headed State Schools.
