A primary school in Ladyville Village is reeling from the effects of a burglary in their classrooms over Wednesday night. This is the fourth time since June that the school has been targeted and Principal, Carol Young, told Love News that the nuisance has adversely affected the progress of the school, which has to ask for assistance each time it occurs.
“Thursday morning I got a call very early from the lady who sells at the school shop saying that went into the classroom; when we got here yesterday morning, seven classrooms broken into. They went with, some classes lost liquid soap, toilet tissue, a teacher lost a CD player and stationeries; they had the whole place ransacked; no appliances because in the classroom only have ceiling fans inside so they couldn’t remove those. I didn’t even try to add up how much the loss amounted to because it gets very disgusting coming to school every time to find out thieves came in; it gets very frustrating. Yesterday I called the Ministry of Education and I spoke with Mr. Lopez and he told me to write a letter to see how best they could help us get a security because we don’t have any security. As well, about two weeks ago I made a call to BEL and told them about two of the lamps not lighting on the poll; they asked me for the number on the poll – I gave it to them but still nothing has been done. Sometimes I tend to believe that it’s students or past students or boys who are around and might not have a job because when they broke in and they went with the sodas, we found sodas and juice over the fence and a thief who would want to sell these things would make sure they take all. The thing that hurts is I guess they sell the things right in the community and the people buy so that makes them do it again. We bought new locks and that costs us money; instead of making two steps forward, you make three steps backwards.”
Young says that the school has asked the Ministry of Education to post a security guard on the compound.
