Vandals target Edmund Rice College carpark

Graffiti vandals have launched an extensive attack on a car park adjacent to Edmund Rice College, in the lead-up to students’ return from school holidays. 

The car park, off Keira Mine Road, was targeted some time between Saturday afternoon at the start of classes, on Monday. 

The vaandals appear to have gone undisturbed for some time, covering the bitumen with pictures and messages – some with racial overtones and one, in an arrow shape, directing “sex offenders” out of the area .

A council worker began blacking out the scrawl early Monday, but not before it was taken in by passing students, staff and parents. 

Contacted by the Mercury, a school representative said the graffiti was outside of school grounds and was a matter for police.
