Burgled: Principal Mark Gregory says the
latest incident was ''violating'' for staff.
By MAT KERMEEN
TEACHERS AND students are on edge
after a fourth break-in at a Papanui pri-
St Josephs was raided in a brazen,
broad daylight burglary on Friday morn-
ing while teachers and students gathered
just metres away in the assembly hall.
Two classrooms and a vehicle on school
grounds were targeted in the latest bur-
glary, which principal Mark Gregory said
was disturbing for staff and pupils.
Students are getting unsettled by it,
we're hearing that from the parents,'' Mr
The latest incident was also particu-
larly violating for his staff.
Teachers aren't too keen on being
here by themselves either, especially in
the hours of darkness.''
After an earlier incident, in which bur-
glars were interrupted at 6am in June,
staff were encouraged to keep doors
locked when on their own.
We often have teachers arriving here
around 7.30am,'' he said.
Thieves got away with computer equip-
ment in both burglaries but teachers'
personal items had also been taken on
Friday, after entry was made through
unlocked classroom doors. The care-
taker's and sports shed had previously
been raided twice earlier in the year.
The school had now taken the precau-
tions of locking gates outside school
hours and setting classroom alarms
whenever the rooms were empty.
Mr Gregory said his gut feeling'' was
that the four incidents might be related
and that the thieves were getting more
adventurous. He urged anyone who had
information or had seen anything sus-
picious on Friday in the 40 minutes
directly after 10am to contact the police.
