School Break In

Unfortunately, a local teenager caused a lot of damage to our school late last night, by breaking in, climbing on the roof and kicking the ceiling fans in through the roof. The worst affected areas were Lilypads Pre School, Rabbit Class and Bat Class. A quick thinking local neighbour alerted Mrs Ely, who telephoned the police and went to the school with her husband and son. Our roof is a pre-fabricated construction, that isn’t safe to walk on without the right equipment, and we are relieved nobody was seriously hurt.


The police were called and the teenager was taken home. The holes have been temporarily patched and we are awaiting for the damage to be assessed. Lots of our resources and soft furnishings are being stored in the loft areas and have been ruined.


Thank you to all who helped, especially to Mrs Ely and her family, the neighbour, Mountjoy contractors and the police. If anyone who lives local to the school ever hears a disturbance on the weekend or in the evening, please don’t hesitate to telephone the police and report it. 

The classes affected will be operational for critical care workers on Monday.

Mrs Riches
