A vandal has burned an area of side netting on a rope bridge at Jonathan Rhodes Kindergarten, in North Dunedin. The netting was only upgraded and replaced a few months ago when $500 was spent replacing worn side-netting near a fort complex.
Staff and parents were disappointed about the recent damage. A temporary repair had secured the affected section of netting yesterday but that may need to be replaced.
Several thousand dollars had been spent upgrading play equipment and making improvements in the North East Valley kindergarten’s grounds in recent years. The vandalism has been referred to the police, who are investigating.
