Don't let vandals ruin our schools
GLADSTONE MP Glenn Butcher is urging locals to be on the lookout to help protect schools from thieves, vandals and arsonists during the school holidays.
"Our schools are hubs for our local community and they belong to all Queenslanders so we can all play a part in helping protect these valuable facilities," he said.
"It might be the sound of smashing glass, voices on the school grounds or other suspicious activity around our schools.
"That's why School Watch encourages our community to Look, Listen, Report."
Mr Butcher said State Government Security had received more than 700 school watch calls in the last 12 months.
State schools will be closed from Friday 26 June to Monday 13 July.
