Find your ancestors in Queensland Education Gazette 1912

Education Gazettes are a fantastic resource for historians wishing to know more about the schools and teachers of the era.

Published primarily to provide instructions and information to the staff of government schools - state-wide. 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. 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
winners of scholarships and bursaries
You will find the details of many hundreds of teachers listed often with names, position, and school. There are also details on new schools opening, and others closing. A wonderful source of historical information, which is good primary data.
