Threats Against School Children Horrifying


ROBIN Newton East Belfast DUP MLA, a member of the Policing Board, has described the threats made against Elmgrove Primary School pupils as absolutely horrifying. Robin Newton said,
“I want to condemn in the strongest possible terms the threats made against the children of Elmgrove Primary School. This was an awful situation and anyone who would do such a thing needs to be taken off the streets and taken before the courts.
The prompt action of the PSNI in addressing this matter combined with the professional approach of the Principal helped stop a potentially serious incident getting out of control.
There can be no greater concern than for the safety of young children who are in the care of a school. The Principal and her staff working with the PSNI handled a very difficult situation in a professional and skilful manner.
I am absolutely certain that pupil’s parents and the community are grateful to the teaching staff and to the police for their timely actions.”
