Trevor Lunn MLA said: “I cannot comprehend why anyone would do something like this. This is a deeply disturbing incident.
“What sort of person sets out to burn down a school? Thoughtless destruction like this arson attack causes disruption to the whole community. People who get kicks from burning down community facilities need to be taken off our streets.
“I would appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the vicinity of the school around the time of the attack to contact police.”
