    DD was in Yr 1 last year. They had 20 in her class which was the biggest class in her grade. Others had 16 & 17 or so.

    We got to a public primary and the class sizes for next year for year 4 are 4 classes of 20-23 kids and for year 6 are 3 classes of 21-23.

    I agree. I think 29 is way too high and if I was going to be paying private school fees there is no way I would be happy with this.

    Our school (public) tries to keep the classes small and because of this it is a very popular school which has had enforce and enrollment management plan in place.

    My DS1's prep class last year had 26 or 27 I think. Private school. It seemed to go okay, maybe a bit hectic at the start of the year, but once they'd all settled in and knew the routine it seemed alright.

    In my experience private schools often have larger class sizes. Some genius (NAWT) did a study that said class size has no discernible effect on student outcomes and principals seem to use that as an excuse to cram in kids. Never mind how overworked the teachers become or how lost the students may feel, as long as the test scores aren't impacted. 😠

    Mine go to a public school. Class sizes for prep and year one are around 20. The rest of the school 24 - 26 max.

    In my experience private schools (especially Catholic) often have higher class sizes.

    29 is too high for year 2.

    Year 2 in nsw is capped at 24 in public schools.
