Alliance Party Leader Sean Neeson has slammed whoever was responsible for last weekend’s attack at St. Comgall’s Intermediate School in Larne.
And Mr. Neeson – who is an assembly member for East Antrim – has called on the North Easter and Education and Library Board to provide security cameras at the school.
The Alliance Party Leader, a former teacher of history at the school, believes that the installation of cameras might prevent vandals from targeting the school in the future.
Mr. Neeson, who visited the ransacked school yesterday afternoon, also urged vandals to think about the “terrible consequences” of their actions.
“I would like to condemn this wanton destruction and ask these people to think about the devastating effect their actions are having on the local community,” said Mr. Neeson.”
“We must not tolerate this type of behaviour and I would urge the NEELB to seriously consider the possibility of using cameras at the schools.”
“I think this action is necessary because the school, which is situated in an isolated area, has been attacked on numerous occasions.”
“Extensive damage has been caused at the school and as a former teacher, it breaks my heart to hear about these type of attacks.”
“I hope the police are successful in apprehending the culprits and I hope we have seen the last of such attacks.”
“However I will still be calling on the education board to install the cameras – sooner rather than later,” added the assemblyman.”
