Scottish school fire adds to vandalism woes
A fire in a Scottish school has added to teachers' concerns following a spate of recent attacks.
Arsonists appear to have been responsible for the latest blaze at the Moray Steiner School in Clovenside, reports the Forres Gazette.
An absence of alarm alerts and fire alarm monitoring systems mean that a local resident had to inform security services at the school after they saw smoke.
Schools spokesperson Elizabeth Watson told the newspaper that the real worry was that the building had been checked and locked shortly after the incident occurred.
She said: "It looked like they had used an object and the kindergarten window was smashed so hard that glass flew across the classroom.
"I just don't know why this is happening."
The Aberdeen Press and Journal reported recently that the school has hired a security guard for the summer holidays following a spate of vandalism.
Reports indicate that the school had been targeted on a total of three occasions in June.
