This series mainly comprises "Personal disposition/property advice" forms for the Magill Training Centre from 1993 to 1996. It also contains "Receipt for mandate and/or person named thereon" forms for the McNally Training Centre at Magill from 1977 to 1979 and a variety of other records of the Magill Training Centre and predecessors. These include: sick parade logs 1968-1974, postage stamp book 1940-1969, workshop supervisor book 1969-1971, checklists of nightshift handover procedures 1996 and property receipt books 1973-1974. At the time these records were archived, some correspondence from 1964-1980 was placed into file covers and called 'Administration files' and included in this series.
A Research Centre Members card, obtainable at the Archives, is required to research records held at State Records.
Although some very early records relating to children in care in South Australia are open for access, most records relating to children are subject to a 100 year restriction, particularly those which contain personal information about individuals. Written permission must be obtained from the government agency which created the record in order to access restricted material. To obtain permission a Freedom of Information (FOI) request form must be submitted to the relevant government department. State Records staff will be able to assist you with this.
