CRESWICK North Primary School has spent thousands of dollars on a new fence which they say now presents a safety risk. The school engaged Central Highlands Fencing to undertake the work, but has since been unable to contact the company to make the necessary adjustments. Creswick North Primary School principal Scott Phillips said the fence which was installed in July was shaky in sections and uneven with gaps at the base."From the point of view of safety, it's pretty important," he said. "The biggest problem is the gap you see in some areas that is not concreted in. We have to instruct our kids to stay away from it."Mr Phillips said the school had ordered a grey fence but Central Highlands Fencing initially put up a black fence. That fence was taken down, painted and put up again.Mr Phillips said the school had been quoted $9300 for the fence and had already paid $7000.The school has recently lodged a civil claim with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Central Highlands Fencing proprietor Wayne Robinson could not be contacted by The Courier. Mr Robinson is believed to be overseas and the business appears to be no longer in operation.
