Burglars in repeat raid at Eccles nursery school

The Eccles Nursery School, on the East Bank of Demerara, was raided by burglars on Wednesday night.

It was the third time in as many weeks that the school suffered at the hands of thieves and teachers yesterday said that it was apparent from the situation that no one at the Ministry of Education was concerned.

According to reports, the school was secured by the teachers on Wednesday afternoon and on arrival at the premises yesterday morning, they found that several boxes of juices, cloth which was being used to make curtains and biscuits, among other items, had been carted off.

Several parents at the school noted that they may be forced to launch a protest about the situation, since no one in authority seemed interested in the situation.

A parent told this newspaper that in time, intruders may attack the school during school hours “and that’s when we will see something happening, since it is only when something serious happen that you get them to act.”

The school was attacked by thieves several times during the last school term and the school’s administrators had made several complaints to the Education Ministry, all of which remained on paper, a teacher noted yesterday.

The latest break-in was reported to the police yesterday morning.
