Your View: School books dumped

CONTRACTORS were employed to clear the library at the Port Vincent Primary School earlier this month.

As a past student, past parent and supporter of the school for many years I am concerned about the final destination of the books, shelving and resources which had been left behind after the school closure.

Everything moveable was loaded and taken to the rubbish dump.

I felt disappointed, hurt and perplexed at the actions of a government department to authorise this waste of valuable books. Through the generosity of the public, many of these were donated.

I do not know how many schools were offered the books, shelving, et cetera, before they were dumped.

If no schools wanted this, surely they could have been offered to libraries or a charitable organisation. Some children could have benefited from these books or they could have had a book sale and made a profit rather than the taxpayer footing the dumping fees.
