For example, the date of the founding of the school or the name of the founder. Please keep such details simple and brief. There are some schools for which the Diocese has no record of a Trust Deed. This does not mean that a Trust Deed does not exist, simply that the Diocese has no record of it. If you know that a Trust Deed exists, please keep this paragraph in the Instrument and send me the details of the Deed. You may, if you wish, try to find the Trust Deed. There are various sources for investigation. Please contact this office for further details.
