This isn’t the first time it has happened and hopefully it will be the last because we’re paying a lot of money to replace these goal posts, money that could be used for other school programs.
Some stupid people have taken them out, cut them off, thrown them around, stolen them and goodness knows what else.
It is very disappointing that people in our community think that it is fun to steal goal posts from schools.
It is most likely that people are stealing them and using them as flag poles, boat masts and even javelins along Bowen Road and the police agree with us.
We love seeing people using our grounds but we expect them to be respectful of our property. We have had the goal posts broken off and threaded through our basketball ring and on this past weekend it was a weatherboard.
We are sick of the constant vandalism and at the cost of $1295.00 to replace a set of goal posts and we just cannot keep replacing them.
We are very sad that our goal posts are being stolen and now we have to use our own school jumpers as the goal posts and sometimes we don’t even know if it’s a goal or not. And that means we cannot play a good game of footy. They are ruining our dreams of playing for the Coutas now or the AFL in the future.
It is us the children of the Borough who miss out when things like this happen.
The police have been called and the thefts have been reported.
