  • Function / Content
    The Denominational Schools Board was established in 1848 and was responsible for the distribution of funds to denominational schools from an annual Parliamentary grant and a proportion of the Church and Schools Estates revenue.

    This series contains transcriptions of the Board's outwards letters to other Government Departments. Noted in the margin beside letters is the inwards registered number (see VPRS 60 Registers of Inward Correspondence) of any piece of correspondence to which this one is the reply. Correspondence is addressed to such officials as the Colonial Secretary, the Chief Secretary and the President of the Board of Land and Works.

    This series was previously registered as Units 5 and 8 of VPRS 62 Outwards Letter Books. It was re-processed in 2004.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Correspondence is given an annual single number. It is alphabetically indexed at the front of the volume by family name of addressee or by office of the addressee. There may be some limited subject indexing.
