“This is very disappointing as the Department of Education has been very supportive, recently providing $10,000 to the school to upgrade the oval and now we are unable to use large sections,” he said.
“It is also not the first time this has happened, but sadly we cannot fence the area entirely because it is a public space and cameras are, unfortunately, not an option.”
The school has contacted the Department of Education and it has organised for the turf to be repaired.
School gardener Martin Jones had spent much of the school holidays preparing the oval for summer and the return of students.
“This will take at least four to five weeks to become usable again and it is the worst damage I have seen in my 21 years working at the school,” he said.
“The tracks are very large and could have only been made by a four-wheel-drive vehicle.”
The school is urging people to record the number plates of any vehicle seen vandalising school property if it is safe to do so.
Hoons have ruined the Safety Bay Primary School oval just as term 4 began last week.
