The purpose of an admission register was to record basic details about children admitted to the school, and about their parents or guardians. The registers were also used to record the progress of the children through various classes and the date of their leaving the school. The series from Moonan Brook Public School is currently represented by a single volume, probably the second of an original two, which covers the period from 1878 until the final closure of the school in March, 1970. This volume was actually commenced in January, 1887, but includes retrospective entries of earlier enrolments still current at that time. It contains information pertaining to each pupil including: date of admission; pupil's name, age and religious denomination; date of leaving previous school and class in previous school. The following details are recorded about the child's parents or guardians: name, residence and occupation.
