Principal Elder wants police to find school vandals

WARWICK East State School principal Warren Elder urges anyone with information on weekend's vandalism at the school to call Warwick police.

There was vandalism to the library, veranda and underground play area.

Mr Elder said police were first alerted by teacher Trevor Nelson on Sunday afternoon who called in at the school to do some work before yesterday's start of term.

"Police first inspected the damage on Sunday afternoon, I am disappointed about the vandalism," Mr Elder said.

"We had some flood recovery work done at the school over the holidays and looked forward to a positive start to term."

Mr Elder spoke to students at assembly yesterday about the damage.

"I wanted to let the children know what had happened," he said.

Sergeant Bob Bushman, of Warwick police, said police have taken photos.

"We would appreciate any assistance from the public and urge everyone to keep an eye on schools and public assets and report any suspicious activity to police."

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
