Glasgow City Council has responded after a primary school was vandalised over the weekend.

St Francis Primary School's nursery, based in the Gorbals, was targeted over the weekend.

A spokesperson said: "We are devastated to return from our break to find that our nursery has once again been badly vandalised, with many items damaged beyond repair.

"We appeal to our community to be vigilant and report anything suspicious!"

Councillor Christian Cannon, City Convener for Education and Early Years said: “It is horrible that the staff and children had to come back after the holidays to the sight of this awful destruction.

“I have no idea what motivates these mindless vandals to attack the property of the nursery and the impact that this has on the community.

“The nursery was targeted at the end of last year and it is such a shame they are back in this position.

“The headteacher will continue to work with the community police to try and identify and educate the culprits of the consequences of their actions.”

Local MP Alison Thewliss said: “It is so upsetting for St. Francis Primary School to return after the holidays to find this damage.

“The staff team and the parent council at St Francis Primary have worked hard over the years to ensure their pupils are given the best experiences possible. It is a real shame to see this happen.

“I hope the local community in the Gorbals will rally round to give the school support to rebuild the nursery garden, and to report any information to local police on 101 or via Crimestoppers Scotland.”
