Class size

PPTA Te Wehengarua believe class size does matter in ensuring our country's young people have access to the best quality education possible.

Secondary teachers want the average class size to be no more than 26 students. They believe that the maximum for a class should be 30 students except for classes where there are hazardous processes, equipment and/or materials - then the class size should be no more than 24 students.

Individualising learning requires a teacher to know their students and to be able to spend quality time with each student they have.
