Kids covered school in poo
JUVENILES are to blame for trashing several classrooms at Port Douglas State School and defecating on property.
Up to seven juveniles under the age of 14 - including current students - were involved in three break-ins at the school last month.
As well as trashing classrooms, human excrement was found in a fridge and on student desks.
So far the Mossman Criminal Investigation Branch has cautioned four youths under the Youth Justice Act 1992 and investigations are continuing.
The youngest offender was just 11 years old.
It is believed the offenders told police they went on the vandalism spree after drinking during the recent school holidays.
The Education Department refused to comment on what disciplinary action was taken against the Port Douglas State School students involved.
“Port Douglas State School has met with the students and their parents to determine the most appropriate disciplinary action,” Far North Queensland regional director for the Department of Education Clive Dixon said.
“As a result of the incidents the school will review security arrangements to ensure that school assets are protected.”
