Children Devastated By Senseless Attack

Counting the cost: Menai-Illawong Uniting Church minister Reverend Ron French said intruders vandalised the church grounds six times in a single fortnight. Pictures: Jane Dyson Mr French said the group scribbled graffiti on all windows and doors with bright textas and tagged a number of shops across the road. It seems that these people have no care or concern for other people, he said. Maybe these teenagers are acting out for some reason and we are a soft target. Its frustrating because it costs money to clean up visit our website and the church is a community resource. It takes peoples time away from what they normally do. Illawong Public School principal Andrew Doyle said students were devastated when they found four classrooms and the playground vandalised after the weekend. Mr Doyle said the group had stolen textas, highlighters Kim Kardashian and stationery from pencil cases to scribble graffiti on walls and windows as well as slashing eight post pads bought by the school with a $7000 grant, and ripping out metal grates. Its disappointing and heartbreaking when someone comes in here and wrecks all the hard work we have done, Mr Doyle said.
