Half the fun it used to be, one half of a slide on the William Konkin Elementary (WKE) school playground had to be cut off and boarded up.
Last weekend someone set fire to new playground equipment at the Burns Lake school. The equipment was added to the WKE playground this past summer.
Gwyndolyn Nicholas, chairperson of the Parent Association Committee (PAC), said that the PAC has been concerned for some time that the playground was susceptible to abuse like this. The PAC has been in talks with the school board to install fencing.
The fire was called into 911 on Sept. 21 at 7:08 a.m. If anyone has any information, they should contact Burns Lake RCMP.
