School vandalism decreasing

NANAIMO – Throughout her three years at Rock City Elementary, Principal Lillian Carefoot has seen several acts of vandalism. Those acts are slowly decreasing thanks in large part to school district 68 and the district parent advisory council. Together they formed an anti – vandalism committee The committee has put several initiatives into place, including mosquito noise devices. By taking action the school board has cut down on the cost of repairs. Two years ago they spent roughly twenty – six thousand dollars repairing acts of vandalism. Last year, less than five thousand dollars was spent. The school district is currently working with the RCMP on implementing crime stoppers in all of its schools. So kids can do their part in preventing crime. Follow Steve Colterman on Twitter – www.twitter.com
