Default Low-lives spoil our teachers' Xmas

This note from the principal was sent home from school yesterday:

"While we finish on a high with the Class Awards and Graduation Ceremonies, I have some unfortunate news. During the Class Awards Ceremonies, from the hours of 1:30 - 3 pm, someone or a group of individuals has entered classrooms and stolen a number of staff purses and bags, containing items such as credit cards, keys and money. The items were stolen from all parts of the school. Anyone with information contact................. This is a very unfortunate end for our 2003 school year. Hopefully the Christmas spirit that is present at this time of year will prevail."

The thieves knew that there was an important assembly on, and that the classrooms would be left unattended, bet they were siblings of kids at the school. Maybe the teachers will have to consider putting their belongings in a locked place in future? The schools here are so open, not fenced in like we're used to. Anyone can wander onto school grounds and get into the classrooms.

What a horrible thing to happen.
I know it does happen all over the world, but how can some one `organise`something like this.

I only hope they get their comeuppance.

I had £20 taken out of my purse once, other members of staff have lost money too. Sadly it's actually kids in our school. I have a budding Oliver Twist in my class at the moment, she even goes in my drawer and takes things. We now all carry our bags everywhere just in case.

This is sadly very common place in schools. Inset days are also usually good pickings for thieves. Unfortunately hardly any schools have lockable lockers for teacher's belongings so you do have to watch your stuff like a hawk!! And it is often the children that pinch things as well.

This isn't to do with schools being broken into but I used to work in a special care baby unit and we used to have things being stolen from other babies cots - clothes toys etc by other babies parents! Someone also nicked the tv and video from the breastfeeding room.

It's awful, what a start to Christmas!

A can sympathise with what Claire was saying on the baby toys - in Uk I used to leave my buggy parked downstairs at the building where my eldest used to do karate, the 1st 2 weeks I got the drinks tray off the pram stolen and also those dandgy toys that you attach! Saddos! Needless to say I used to lug it upstairs after that.
