History of QASR
The concept of a State Association of School Registrars was first discussed in early 1997 when Robert Morris (Anglican Church Grammar School) and Chrissie Henning (Brisbane Boys’ College) met at the Goondiwindi Show. Vivienne Harris (Brisbane Grammar School) also was interested in the concept and a Steering Committee was formed.
In June that year 35 school Registrars attended the inaugural meeting at Anglican Church Grammar School. In the following months, a Constitution was established, the Mission Statement agreed upon and the title of Queensland Association of School Registrars was officially adopted.
The annual subscription was agreed upon and it was decided that member schools be allowed to invite interested staff to attend those meetings. It was agreed that a meeting be held once each term and that a guest speaker be invited to address the meeting. An important element of each meeting comprises of “round table” discussions to allow members to share information relevant to the continued best-practice standards by which all schools should adhere to.
The Association was incorporated in July 1998.
- To raise the professional role of School Registrars.
- To provide professional development and support in key areas for members of the Association.
- To research and disseminate to members developments pertaining to enrolments.
