School in Firing Line following Ministerial visit

A Primary school principal in Coleraine has claimed that his school has been the target of attacks on four occasions in recent weeks by loyalists following a visit to the controlled primary school in Coleraine by Education Minister, Catriona Ruane. John Platt, Principal of Millburn County P.S., claimed that ‘certain people’ wanted to “send a message that we can make life difficult for you” after he had invited the Sinn Fein Minister to the school. He went on to state that he expected four stolen laptops to be returned to the school in the coming days after the matter had been ‘resolved’ by local community leaders.
