The Education Department referred children for truancy, problems with behaviour, and apparent neglect to successive child welfare departments. Children in foster care, government run homes, and approved children's homes attended Education Department schools. School records such as admission registers may contain information about former wards of state.
The Department ran Hagley Farm School which had boarding facilities and received child migrants in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
