Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the utility of school centenary and jubilee history publications as sources of evidence of school culture. A content analysis of a sample of 264 Australian school centenary and jubilee histories was undertaken using a conceptual model developed by Millikan(l) and refined further in Beare, Caldwell and Millikan(2). The model provides a workable practical framework for the identification of the components of school culture.
