Teachers and principals

Sources for compiling lists of teachers and principals depend on the years required:

Prior to 1974

Staff registers (1860-1973) include:

  • names of staff
  • dates of appointment/transfer; and
  • possibly the school where the teacher transferred

Staff registers are located at Queensland State Archives (QSA)
They are identified in their catalogue as:

  • Annual returns of Teachers employed in State Schools
    SRS 5136: 1878-1950 (TR3741)
  • Returns of Teachers employed in State Schools
    SRS 5140; 1949-1975 (TR 3801)

Since 1974

  • lists are available from the local District Office of Education Queensland. The report required is a PASM0002 report - staffing history by org.
  • a staff list from 1974 to the present must be requested by the current school principal only
  • school anniversary committees may not request these lists
