Police are appealing for witnesses after a primary school in Hawick was vandalised.
A number of windows at Burnfoot Primary School were smashed at some time between 16 and 25 July.
The damage is expected to cost thousands of pounds to repair.
This is a needless act of destruction that will be of great expense to the school and we are investigating the matter thoroughly to identify whoever was involved.
Anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around the school recently, or who believes they can assist with this ongoing inquiry should contact police immediately.
I would also urge parents to discuss this incident with their children and remind them of the potential dangers and consequences associated with such offences.

Police Scotland has issued a safety reminder to people attending the Hawick Common Riding.
Hundreds of horses and riders, suited and booted, will ride through the streets of Hawick today for the annual Common Riding.
The earliest risers set off at 6.00am this morning to make the most of the 13th century tradition.
Common Ridings take place across the South of Scotland throughout the summer months.
The Local Government Boundary Commission's recommendations to Scottish Ministers, is to cut the number of councillors in the Scottish Borders from 34 to 32.
Hawick Councillor, Watson McAteer, says cutting representation in Hawick at a time when the town's dealing with the aftermath of flooding and bus cuts, is wrong:
The net outcome here is that six Hawick councillors are being reduced to four. It's at a time when we've got job losses, we've got huge issues with flooding and the work that needs to be done. And now we're hearing about cuts to our bus services.
Hawick needs more representations, not less. So I do hope that the Scottish government return and reject this proposal from the boundary commission and leave the status quo.
