Students and staff members at the Eden Seventh Day Adventist Primary School in Santa Elena Town are still reeling from the third break-in to their beloved center of learning during the last two years. Sometime on Monday night or early Tuesday morning a thief or group of thieves gained forceful entry into the principal’s office and zeroed in to a set of eight duplicated keys, which were the gateway for the schools eight other classrooms.

Stolen from the struggling school was about $7000.00 worth of items, which included four DELL Lap tops, which had just been replaced from the previous break-in. Also stolen from the school were four large blue tooth enabled speakers and FM radios that teachers used to enhance educational lessons. Most precious to the school for the information contained therein was the loss of a 120 gigabyte USB flash drive.

“I would just like to say that I am saddened by this again, because this school tries to serve this community and it hurts when you know people steal from a school, because when you steal from a school you actually steal from our children,” says Mrs. Tharine Gabourel, Principal of the SDA Primary School.

“Why do they do this to our future leaders? Such a sad day for the Eden SDA Primary School community!”

Even thought the Eden SDA has had its own trouble with thieves, they have been greatly blessed by both local and international help in the construction of its many classrooms thanks to the untiring efforts of its principal Tharine Gabourel.
