Daily Log Of Admissions, Discharges And Occurrences (Boys' Section) for boys at Minda between 1970 and 1976. The records include the names of any admissions or discharges, numbers of boys in the Centre at midnight and morning, afternoon and night reports.
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.
Entries for each day in the Daily Log include the following information: admissions and discharges (surnames and initials only), statistics on the total number of boys in the Centre at midnight and the number of admissions and discharges that day. They also include morning, afternoon and night reports from both the senior and junior sections (providing the names of officers on duty, the number of boys in each section, general behaviour, and notes on any unusual occurrences).
According to Connecting Kin (1998), there are 12 volumes of Daily Log Of Admissions, Discharges And Occurrences (Boys' Section).
