Jillian Mellis, headteacher said: "Despite measures to increase security at Pathhead, I'm saddened that our school has been targeted again. As well as broken windows, computers have been stolen.

"This incident has had a direct impact on our school community. Learning has been disrupted by the loss of equipment and the damage to the school, which will take time to replace and repair. I'd urge anyone who has any information about this to contact police.”
