From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 6 August 2018

The city's principals say it's hard to predict student numbers because of the pace of new housing developments, and because houses are increasingly home to more than one family. Helen Varney from the Auckland Primary Principals Association told RNZ education correspondent, John Gerritsen, that her own school is among those hit by the growth.
