Three Aberdeen schools vandalised since start of summer holidays

Three schools have been vandalised since  the start of the summer holidays, police said today.

Windows were damaged at Quarryhill Primary School, Birkhall Parade, on July 12 and four youths were seen in the area at the time.

Windows were also broken at Seaton Primary School, Seaton Place East, between July 21 and 24 and at Milltimber Primary, Monearn Gardens, which was reported to police this morning.

The force is now urging parents and guardians to keep an eye on what their children are up to during the break.


Area Commander Chief Inspector Kevin Wallace said: “Over the course of the school holidays we often record an increase in anti-social behaviour and vandalisms, with young people out and about for longer and later at night.

“We have repeatedly warned that conduct like this will not be tolerated and our message still stands. Anti-social behaviour can have a detrimental effect on local communities, and the cost to repair damage caused by unwanted and unnecessary vandalism can be significant.

“I would please ask parents and guardians to be aware of what their children are up to during the holidays and to discuss with them what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour – our young people need to understand that. Where criminality takes place we will take a robust approach and anyone found to be responsible for a crime will be reported to the relevant authority, be it the Procurator Fiscal or the Youth Justice Management Unit.

“Being reported for a crime could potentially affect or limit future education and career choices so the best advice is to stay safe and out of trouble. At the end of the day all we want is for everybody to have a great and enjoyable summer as well as a safe one.

“Our officers will be paying particular attention to schools in their areas and I would also ask the public to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity. Anyone with information about these incidents, or any antisocial activity in the area of our schools, can contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.”
