    This just typifies the difference between the public and the private system.

    Fiona was a graze, there was no major structural damage, of course all schools and colleges will be open. The private system was apologetic about friday, it looks to get back. The public system acts like children themselves, how can we skip school?

    It was the same in covid, the same with the mould, it is symptomatic of a public school system in horrible decline. And meanwhile the private system cleans up, with rising numbers, despite the recession.
