The recollection is of Sunday Schools in the mid 1980s. For anyone overseas, Sunday Schools in average churches in Australia at that time might have had up to half a dozen classes if it was a large one, and maybe 5-10 children in each age group. A smaller church might have had three classes. Very few children continued at Sunday School beyond early high school years. Sunday Schools have continued to fall away over the past three decades; many congregations have abandoned them altogether, with some exploring other ways of ministering with children and their families.
