Police speak with teenagers after vandalism attack at Currambine Primary School

POLICE are speaking with two teenagers after Currambine Primary School suffered “extensive” damage from vandalism overnight.

North West Metropolitan response officers arrived at the Ambassador Drive school after an alarm went off at 3.15am.

On arrival, they found a tyre on fire in a sandpit, which they put out before searching the rest of the school.

A police spokeswoman said there was “extensive” damage to the school – including one classroom where all the draws had been rummaged through and paint had been thrown over the walls, floor, toilets and a fridge.

The paint was believed to have been stolen from a shed on the school grounds.

Wires to electrical items had been cut, chair coverings slashed and the toilets had been filled with classroom items – including pictures – and left running.

Paint was also thrown over the outside play area.

A 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy are helping police with their inquiries.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report it online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
