Police release CCTV after Gold Coast school badly damaged by fire [video]

Detectives are stepping up their appeal for public assistance after a Gold Coast school was badly damaged by a ferocious fire last year.

Just before 11.00pm on Monday 25 April, emergency services were called to St Andrews Lutheran College on Tallebudgera Creek Road following reports of a large blaze.

Upon arrival, fire crews found the building well alight. They managed to extinguish the flames, however the building sustained extensive damage.


Investigations into the suspicious blaze have been ongoing ever since, with detectives uncovering CCTV vision recorded at the time of the fire.

“CCTV recovered at the time showed four persons walking away from the school on the school oval as the fire took hold of the buildings and information is sought in relation to their identity,” Police said in a statement.

“We are continuing to actively and thoroughly investigate this incident and are still appealing for anyone who might have any information to offer police about the matter,” Detective Senior Sergeant Aubort said.

“With the passage of time it is often the case information and conversations of relevance from those involved begin to flow. It’s important that information reaches us and we speak to all four of those depicted in the CCTV vision.”

Investigations are continuing.
