Following on a visit paid by the Director of Education for New Zealand to some of the Australian states where Correspondence Classes had already been in operation for some years, it was decided to introduce on a much smaller scale a similar method of instruction to serve the educational needs of the very isolated families in New Zealand. A sole teacher was appointed to initiate the scheme but it is evident that, from the beginning, the Department had no reliable estimate of the subsequent growth of the institution nor of the work which it was later to accomplish.
