Church flags school safety review after stabbing

| May 10, 2012

Catholic education authorities will look into school safety after a student was stabbed before class at Caboolture, north of Brisbane, yesterday.

St Columban's College in Caboolture was closed for the day after a 14-year-old girl was stabbed outside a toilet block around 7:30am (AEST).

A 16-year-old boy was charged last night with attempted murder.

Teachers provided first aid and the girl was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries to her head, neck and back.

Counselling has been offered to students and staff.

Principal Ann Rebgetz praised emergency services.

"The police were here very quickly so I think there's been very good strong action to take control of the situation," she said.

Ms Rebgetz says the school community is in shock.

"We don't have a history of violence on our campus and we're very concerned," she said.
