A Western Sydney high school is in lockdown after a teenage boy was stabbed several times.
The 14-year-old student was stabbed at Arthur Phillips High School in Parramatta around 8.30am.
Emergency services treated the boy for stab wounds to his back and arm before he was taken to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead for further treatment.
“Officers from Parramatta Police Area Command have established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident,” NSW Police have said in a statement.
No arrests have been made as yet.
Arthur Phillip is the first public high-rise school in NSW.
Only last week, the school published an update on their website urging students, parents and staff to download the NSW Schools app to “be prepared for any emergency.”
“The NSW School Updates App was created to help our parents and carers check on the status of their school during last summer’s bushfire season. And it’s been invaluable during COVID when schools were required to close for deep cleaning,” the message said.
