Most schools also had a miscellaneous file or folder, of loose documents made up of; Department of Education circulars, school correspondence, examination & promotion rolls, with paperwork relating to the school management and Diocesan Inspector’s reports. The latter was especially concerned with the religious teaching in school and was often carried out by a priest or vicar, representing the local Bishop as patron of the schools.
Photos and Media files
Schools often amassed a collection of photos, down the years. The practice of school class photos i.e. a photographer coming to the school and taking photos of pupils in various classes, usually with their teachers, began early in the last century. Some photos can date back to the early 1900's. More recently, with the advent of the tech age, schools now produce a variety of multimedia presentations, in video, audio and visual form.
