C   Boards and Committees

4   "Scholarchale vergadering" or School Board

c   Reports on school inspections. (1718-1781).
These reports exist under three categories, viz:
The minutes and other papers of the "Scholarchale vergadering" are shown in the old inventory lists of the Secretary of the Landraad at Galle, who was apparently also Secretary of the "Scholarchale vergadering" there; but these school visitation reports are shown in the old inventory lists of the Galle Secretariat, and there is no doubt that they belonged to the archives of the Galle Secretariat. But they are entered here under the series " Scholarchale vergadering" from whom they emanated. The reports addressed to the Galle "Scholarchale vergadering" were apparently sent either in original or sometimes in copy to the Secretariat, and those addressed to the Governor were sent to him in original, a copy being retained at the Galle Secretariat.
The Board of "Scholarchen" for school inspections usually consisted of one "predikant" or minister and one lay official.
