School attendance improving post lockdown - principals

From Morning Report, 7:41 am on 4 September 2020

Auckland principals says roll numbers are climbing after half-full classes greeted them when schools reopened this week under level 2.5.

Safety concerns were cited for a low turnout on Monday, most notably in South Auckland.

While numbers have improved, many schools remain well short of attracting a full roll.

Principals Vaughan Couillault of Papatoetoe High School and Neil Watson from Otahuhu College speak to Susie Ferguson.
