Pupils at St Winnings Primary School were so saddened to learn that their school had been ransacked by cruel thieves, that they decided to write letters to the culprits.
“I hope you have a nice Christmas because you have ruined ours,” is the message that pupils of the Kilwinning school are sending out to the thieves that struck their school last week.
The heartless thieves stole iPads and iBooks from the school, leaving St Winnings teachers to make the shocking discovery on Monday, December 3.
Over 20 letters were written by angry and upset pupils that have had to deal with losing school projects and work that was stored on the devices.
One letter reads: “You don’t even know how I feel, I feel scared and upset. Why would you do this we are children, we can’t do anything about it.”
Another letter ends: “You broke all our hearts. I feel sorry for you.”
Another letter even includes a picture of a pupil upset whilst the thieves beam with glee.
St Winning’s head teacher Claire Milson was saddened by the incident.
“All the pupils felt very down on Monday - all of their school projects were on the devices and now that’s all gone. The pupils felt inspired to write letters to let the people who did this know that their actions have a consequence.”
A spokesperson from Strathclyde Police said: “Local police are continuing to make enquiries into this incident and extra patrols are being focused on the area.
“Police are appealing for information from anybody in North Ayrshire who has been offered for sale any iPad or iBook. Any information can be reported to Irvine police office 01294404400 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800555111.”
