    30, which is very common for a catholic school. In the lower years that includes teacher and 2 full time aides. By about year 2, it includes teacher and 1 full time aide.

    I am a teacher in SA, &am really suprised that other states have smaller public schools. My experience has been the exact opposite here - our private and catholic schools have much smaller classes than the public system. You would be lucky to have under 25 for public prep in our area, most classes range from about 25-30. Private is more like 18-25. DD has 19 in her (private) class, I think.

    Which state are you? Way too high for grade 2. An average of 21 students across p-2 in the requirement I think at least in state schools.

    This year DD (grade 1) had 21 in her class and DS (grade 3) had 24 in his class. I expect similar numbers next year. They are in Catholic school.

    Total opposite here in NSW.

    Catholic schools have class sizes minimum 30, usually 32-35 even in first year of school.

    Public schools have capped classes for first 3 years of school..thanks to the union

    Years 3-6 usually try and not exceed 30 but it depends on numbers as public schools in nsw are allocated staff on student numbers.

    Expensive private schools would have smaller class sizes.

    Here is the class size averages for nsw public schools in 2014 and shows you how class sizes have been reduced in public primary schools.

    Yep I've taught in private schools on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts and had classes of 30 kids. Ridiculous.
