School Vandalism
Our school grounds attract much unauthorized after hours activity. While respectful users are most welcome, everyone is advised that our school grounds are private property and as such fall under the Trespass Act. The Sooke RCMP will be enforcing the Trespass Act.  Any individual found on school property between the hours of 10 pm and 6 am may be subject to a fine of $115 and that anyone found damaging or destroying school property will be billed.
Vandalism is an ongoing  problem at Sooke Elementary.  You can help by reporting so district money goes toward education not fixing damage.
     Report suspicious activity and vandalism at our school.
    Please call the RCMP Sooke Detatchment at 642 5241.

              Thank you for your support.
