Sinn Féin hit out at attack on Lagan College

30 April, 2007

Sinn Féin spokesperson for education MLA Paul Butler has hit out at those who caused £20,000 worth of damage to Lagan College.

Mr Butler said:

"This attack on an integrated school is disgraceful and shocking. Those who engage in this type of activity have no place in our community.

"I had met with teachers and pupils from the school only last week at Stormont, and I am horrified to hear of this wanton vandalism on a school which is doing so much to bring future generations from both communities together through education.

"Schools must be seen as sacred places, which must be protected from such wanton destruction. All of us who are engaged in politics must send out a very strong message that our system of education must be defended against these attacks and threats." ENDS
