A SCHOOL has been counting the cost after two burglaries in the space of just a few days over the Easter holidays.

An iPad valued at £300 and four digital cameras – valued at £70 each – were among the items taken by burglars who raided Ysgol Plas Coch, in Stansty Road.

Devastated headteacher Osian Jones said images of children’s school work were stored on the stolen devices.

The first break in was in a portable building on the school grounds some time between 5pm on Tuesday and 9.30am on Thursday last week when the iPad and one camera were taken.

The burglars struck again on Easter Sunday at 2pm, when another portable building and the main school building were targeted.

This time thieves made off with three digital cameras.

“As well as stealing the iPad and cameras the burglars have made a mess with books all over the place,” said Mr Jones.

“Members of staff have been in to help clear everything up, it has made extra work for them.

“We have also had offers of help from parents who have heard about the crimes. I would like to thank everyone for their assistance, it is greatly appreciated.”

The police have asked for anyone who may have information about the burglaries to call 101.
