'Tyred' of car hoons

STAFF, parents and students at Mullaway Primary School have been left wondering what thrill car hoons got from damaging the children’s play areas.

Police are investigating a costly act of malicious damage, in which vehicles drove through the school grounds this week and did burn-outs across a new hard court and the school oval.

Assistant principal David King told the Woolgoolga Advertiser he could not understand the enjoyment offenders got from the vandalism.

“This only puts the kids out, our new hard-court surface is covered in tyre marks and the school oval was also damaged,” Mr King said.

Woolgoolga police have called on residents to keep an eye out and call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
