MELVILLE High School has fallen victim to an awful act of crime over the weekend forcing the school to make short-term changes to their classroom allocations.
In a statement on their Facebook, the school explained the devastation caused to staff and students.
"Unfortunately on the weekend our beautiful school was damaged from a break-in. Walking through the school yesterday brought feelings of sadness and violation. Destruction for no reason that only causes harm to our school community. I wonder why the culprits are hurting so much they have to do this? I hope they can find a way to help them heal," the statement read.
