    I would speak to the teacher. But I also think it is a life lesson that not everyone gets invited. I make sure DD is not over the top about it and doesn't make people feel bad about it.

    Does the school give you class lists with all the parent info? Ours does so we all just text/call the parents directly (I still like giving out invites so I post them !) now as we are in year 4 and we know all the parents we also do a WhatsApp group with all the party info - kindy was the only time most people did a full class party and the teacher put all the invites in the kids bags

    This. In kinder we put them into their communication pockets, school, the first year the teacher said to put them into the pocket, but three following years he never had one so I just gave them to him to have out

    And this. It's a sad part of life that not everyone gets invited to everything. It's kinda contradictory when we are spruking inclusiveness, that exclusion is bullying.... but it is just a part of life. We've never had a full class party, nor has he been invited to one. He's 9 in March. They're usually 8-10 kids max.

    No, we don’t get parent info. Because I work full time and I’m not super confident socially I haven’t gotten to know a lot of the other parents well.

    Are there 45 kids in his class?
    If you just mean in his grade, why not just invite those in his actual class.
    The way I cut numbers is I say you can invite all the "boys" or all the "girls" in your actual class. Then if someone says "Why didnt you invite me" then I'd have them say "Mum said I can only invite all the boys/girls in my actual class".
    So my daughter invites all the girls, my son invites all the boys.
    Works for us.

    I used to be a primary school teacher (long time ago) and at my school we always put the invitations in the child's reader-folder (not sure what other schools call these). We didnt allow kids to just go around handing them out unless they intended to invite everyone because it is hurtful to those not invited and that also has ramifications later during the week. However, those kids not invited always knew because those invited would talk about it at school.

    As a teacher, I wouldn’t mind helping to hand out the invites. For me, it would not be an imposition at all. Hoping all goes well
