Vandalism disrupts classes at WC school
Arcadia High School’s roof and several windows were damaged by vandals who also targeted the computer lab.
CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Education Department says some classes will be affected at a Bonteheuwel high school today after vandals ransacked the institution.
Arcadia High School's roof and several windows were damaged by the vandals who also targeted the computer lab.
The provincial education MEC's spokesperson Jessica Shelver says, "I can confirm that Arcadia High School was targeted by vandals over the weekend. We are still awaiting a full report from the school. However, our Safe Schools directorate will work with the school in this regard."
Shelver says they can't win the fight against such incidents without the community's support.
"While we can try and do everything to safeguard our schools with additional security measures, we simply can't win the fight without community support."
