Concerns about the number of students returning next week. 

From next Tuesday, years 11 to 13 students under Alert Level Three are able to go back to school ... with the Government considering options for years 1 to 10. 

PPTA President Melanie Webber says told Mike Hosking some schools will have up to two thousand students back in the classroom. 

She says there seems to be a lack of understanding as to how secondary schools work. 

“You’ll have students moving around, you’ll have over a hundred close contacts in a day with students and teachers.”
