Posted on September 09, 2016
More than 960 students at a Perth high school were asked to stay at home on Friday after vandals caused extensive damage the night before.
More than 220 windows were smashed, numerous computers were damaged and the gymnasium and other areas flooded using fire hoses at Eastern Hills Senior High School.
"Due to damage overnight to school there will be limited classes today. If your child can stay at home today please do not send them to school. Thank you," the school said in emails and text messages to families.
The school provided supervision for about 50 students who turned up.
Midland detectives are looking at security camera footage and are seeking public help over the damage they say occurred between 11pm and 12.30am.
Staff discovered the aftermath when they arrived for work on Friday morning.
Education Department regional executive director Jim Webb told ABC radio about 40 per cent of the school was damaged.
