Dear Edi­tor,

I would like to thank the in­di­vid­ual or in­di­vid­u­als for rip­ping out 2 small bushes from our play­ground. We worked very hard to pro­vide an en­vi­ron­ment the chil­dren can have fun in, learn how to care for the earth and trees and also learn about in­sects and birds. Thanks to you, the chil­dren are un­able to ex­pe­ri­ence any of these things.

We teach chil­dren to re­spect our en­vi­ron­ment, yet when

they see things dis­ap­pear­ing from our play­ground, what is that teach­ing them? It is peo­ple like you who are tak­ing away our chil­dren's learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment. What is left to teach them? Cer­tainly how to not be like you.

It is my hope that the chil­dren in our cen­tre will not grow up to be­have like the van­dals who are try­ing to de­stroy our play­ground. Shame on you for dis­ap­point­ing and tak­ing away the fun for our young chil­dren!
