The disciplinary hearing of a teacher who slapped a learner at San Souci Girls High school, is expected to take place today. The teacher and the grade nine learner were suspended earlier this month when a video of an altercation between them went viral on social media. The video shows how Clarissa Venter instructed the learner to leave the classroom as she did not have the correct


work book and her cell phone was on her desk. Venter then removed the cell phone. In retaliation, the learner tried to get it back and pushed her desk into Venter; who then slapped her across her face. The learner's disciplinary hearing is scheduled for Friday afternoon at the school. Both remain suspended.
