The Record Book for Dora Turner School dates from 1941 to 1956. It contains the names of girls with their grades in reading, writing, dictation, composition, and arithmetic. Occasionally it gives IQs. At times it notes absences, for instance because the girl was ill or at the Sunshine Home. Since some girls from the Industrial School for Girls – Hobart attended the Girls’ Welfare School (later the Dora Turner School) there may be information about them in the Record Book.
