Yesterday on the show we chatted about whether or not you feel schools should close. We were bombarded by your opinions and today we thought we would take the conversation further.

A man who has been in the news of late is Principal Wesley Neumann  from Heathfied High who has sent an appeal to president Cyril Ramaphosa and his cabinet to shut down school until it’s safe to return. His efforts have led the education department to take action against him.

As a result Teachers, learners and community members have picketed outside Heathfield High School. In  support of their principal Wesley Neumann.

Following yesterday’s discussion and the picketing that has occurred in the past couple of days.

We chat to FIONA SOUTHGATE, School Governing Body member about their support for Mr. Neumann’s stance.
