Some parents with students enrolled at Coober Pedy Area School say their children will not return to the school next year unless principal Sue Lewis is removed.

Mayor Steve Baines who was contacted today by ABC radio, “says school goes back at the end of the month and parents have conveyed that they need to make decisions about where and how they will educate their children”.

Steve Baines said that  the opal mining town cannot afford to lose any more families.

“It has certainly divided the town and I really think that’s the reason why these review recommendations need to be enacted fairly quickly,”said the Mayor

“We need to start January as a new year and we need to resolve some of the issues.”
