VANDALS have caused damage worth hundreds of dollars at Horsham Special School and Horsham College.
Horsham Special School replaced 12 Colorbond fence panels, worth about $400, on Monday after vandals kicked them in at the weekend.
The new fence, which surrounds the school’s trampoline, was again damaged on Monday night.
Horsham Special School principal Matt Copping said the ‘needless damage’ was disappointing.
“We don’t mind if people use the school grounds outside school hours but if damage is done we might have to build sheds around the trampoline area,” he said.
“We thought it was a one-off but unfortunately it has happened again.
“The area will now be more closely monitored with cameras that we will need to install.”
Vandals also targeted Horsham College at the weekend where they broke into student lockers.
College principal Frank Spiel said the school had been hit twice in the past six weeks.
“It is a pity because we haven’t had anything like this in the past three years but we have been targeted recently,” he said.
“The most disappointing thing for us was that we had a campaign a couple of years ago against graffiti and vandalism.”
Horsham police are investigating.
