School bell scares off would-be intruders

A BEEPING alarm was enough to scare off intruders attempting to enter F Block at Gladstone South State School yesterday.

Principal Kurt Goodwin was called to his school yesterday after the alarm was activated when offenders tried to open a door.

Mr Goodwin said there was no damage to the building and nothing was taken.

"There was nothing inside except for desks even if they did get in," he said.

"F Block is about to be changed to lower school this year so it had been cleaned out."

This comes after a 38-year-old woman was charged with breaking into Toolooa State High School on December 22.

She allegedly entered the Social Science building and rummaged through the classrooms and removed items from the building.

Gladstone police urged everyone to be vigilant during the school break with students not returning to school until January 27.

Teachers will return on January 18.
