These volumes (15 November 1942 - 29 January 1943 and 27 November 1972 - 10 July 1973) contain details of the inmates' behaviour and appearances at the morning and afternoon musters held at the institution. An alphabetical list of all inmates is included at the beginning of each volume. There is a daily account of the behaviour of certain inmates who were deserving of either plus or minus marks in accordance with the marking system which was adopted by the school. The marking system encompassed all facets of life in the institution from dormitory and meal behaviour to behaviour in the laundry and in activities classes.
According to Connecting Kin (1998), there are 4 volumes of Muster Books.
