We went to the Haddington police on the eighth of November 2011 to be talked to about vandalism. At first we thought about what vandals do. We came up with graffiti, smashing windows, break and burn property, spit gum on the pavement and break gravestones. Then we drew a picture of what we thought a vandal looked like. Many had baseball caps and hoodies.
Mine had a hoodie, torn jeans and trainers. It was a boy teen about 15. In one hand was some spray-paint and in his other there was a firework. He had just graffitied a house. Then we were shown some examples of vandalism. The first was of a broken gravestone then a burnt garage and finally a broken school window. Then we were shown vandalism done by people 9-10-11. There was a broken car window and graffiti. Don’t vandalize! Its not cool!

On Tuesday the 8th November 2011
P6A went to Haddington Police Station to receive a talk about vandalism. In this talk we were told about the different types of vandalism. After discussing the types(graffiti,fire raising and property damage to name a few),we drew what we thought vandals looked like. Most people seem to think that they wore hoodies and baseball caps and used spray paint. After this we were shown pictures of vandalism(broken gravestone,smashed building supplies,shattered school window and a burned garage) . No-one had a clue what linked them but they were all committed by under-13s. we were then shown how much all this costs the council. We were told that if you commit an act of vandalism then your future employers are sent your criminal record. Commit three acts of vandalism and you get a fine and/or an Asbo. We learned lots and I really enjoyed it!

On a school trip we went to dynamic earth these are my favorites
1. My first favorite part was the nature bit when the leopard came out. and my other favorite bit was the time machine.
2. I also enjoyed when you had to go and draw things that you could see. but the most most thing i enjoyed was the pet rocks cause it was so cute and after the lesson there was this gift shop and my mum went to get me a gift. it was a pet rock and i was so happy .

The Police Station was so fun. We walked from our school to the station. (It took us 10 minutes!!) It was really fun. As we went in we were greeted and shown where to go. After that it was really good too. When we got to the room, we told the officer what we thought vandalism was, we got it all right. Then we listened to a presentation and drew a stereo type what we thought a vandal looked like. Finally the other officer said a few words and we saw the cells. I sat on one of the beds and it was so uncomfortable. That was what happened at the police station. By Ailish B
