Sans Souci Girls’ High School teacher Clarissa Venter’s case has been postponed to 7 April 2020 after she briefly appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court in Cape Town, Western Cape.
This comes after a video went viral of her violent altercation with a Grade 9 pupil, in which Venter can be seen slapping the pupil before grabbing her by the shirt.
Venter said the pupil swore at her and pushed her around.
She appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court for the reinstatement of charges of assault against her.
In August 2019, the charge against Venter was withdrawn after her lawyer argued that the case should be withdrawn as the disciplinary hearing against his client had been dealt with and that the pupil had decided to leave Sans Souci.
