Four teenagers have been charged over last month’s break-in at Byron Bay High School where HSC student artworks were damaged.

Police charged the teens, two aged 18 and two aged 19, after a lengthy investigation and they will face Byron Bay Local Court on Wednesday 23 October on a number of charges including malicious damage, larceny and trespass.

The vandalism, on the weekend of 23-24 August, involved damage to a number of classrooms with paint and other liquids thrown around, and some students’ artworks destroyed.

Specialist forensic officers had examined the area for evidence.

  1. Excellent work tracking down these nasty people. I hope the law slams them and I would also like to see them made to sit down with the kids whose art was destroyed and hear what impact it has had on them. Just a completely despicable act.
