Admission Registers (Girls' Section) are records about girls who attended Minda from May 1966 to June 1969. The volumes include personal information about the girl, the offence she committed and to whom and when she was discharged.
Access to these records is restricted. People wishing to access restricted records can either contact their nearest Community Services Centre to apply or they can post the information; an application form must be completed together with proof of identity provided.
The Admission Registers (Girls' Section) give details of the date of admission, full name, age, religious denomination and by whom the girl was committed. The nature of the offence committed as well as information as to under whose jurisdiction the girls were discharged, on what date this occurred, and details of any appeals. Whether the girls were checked by a doctor and/or psychiatrist, and further remarks of a personal kind are also included.
According to Connecting Kin (1998), there are 2 volumes of Admission Registers (Girls' Section).
