DRUNKEN louts who continue to trash the playground of a North Glasgow primary school have left behind broken bottles, litter and even "used condoms" during their antics. 

The parents and carers of pupils attending Cadder Primary School have decided to take anti-social matters into their own hands after a spate of "shocking" vandalism attacks on their outdoor classroom. 

Mums, dads and guardians have raised more than £1000 to install a CCTV system and security lights at the learning space.

Tracy Cameron, who is the school's Parent Council Treasurer, said: "It just keeps happening and we have said that we don’t mind if there are people who are using it as a place for shelter or to sit when it is raining.

“It becomes a problem when the building is completely trashed. They are just leaving it completely beyond recognition.

“In most instances, there is broken glass bottles, rubbish and graffiti sprayed across it. But there has even been used condoms left behind on a few occasions. 

“It isn’t fair on the kids and it isn’t fair on the school’s janitor who is endlessly having to clean up the mess that is left behind. He’s in his 60’s and although he is a janitor, this isn’t his job."

Glasgow Times:

On multiple occasions, the "awful" use of language in the graffiti left plastered across the facility has made it unusable for the children to learn in.

“The kind of language that is sprayed and painted onto the outdoor classroom is awful so much that the kids can’t use it for learning until it is painted over again.

“The kids get so sad every time it happens. It means they can’t use the outdoor space for a certain amount of time until it is all cleaned up again.

“It isn’t just an outdoor learning facility, there are pupils who are autistic who it as a place to relax and unwind if they need it. 

“The primary ones also used it to plant flowers around, which have also been torn up.

"They hadn’t been planted that long ago, either", said Tracy.
So far, the group have raised a total of £1095 with the aim of reaching £1500 on an online fundraiser.

Tracy added: "We don’t know what we will be able to have in terms of security but we are fundraising to install some sort of camera and security lights to prevent the anti-social behaviour from happening again.

“We are so grateful for the donations that we have received so far – we know they are probably coming from people that can’t afford it at the moment. 

“There is a lot of people who have donated without any thanks, they just wanted to help.

“I just don’t think these people know what damage they are really causing."
Earlier, we told how weekend policing would be stepped up in the area after officers became aware of “destruction” at the outdoor classroom.
