School needle alarm Todays News
THE Education Department is investigating an incident at a Midlands high school in which six students were allegedly stabbed with a syringe.
It is understood an Oatlands District High School male student has been suspended after students told their teacher the boy had stabbed them with a needle.
The Department of Education is investigating an incident at a southern Tasmanian school this week, Education Department Deputy Secretary Liz Banks said yesterday.
As a precaution, Public Health has been notified and students have been assessed by their general practitioners.
It is not known if the matter has been reported to police or whether a police investigation will occur as a result of the allegations.
The result of the investigation is expected next week.
Parents are understood to have sought medical attention for their children on Monday immediately after the incident.
In late May three students at a Hobart primary school were found pricking each other with a syringe they found outside a doctor surgery.
The syringe was taken from the children and their parents contacted.
That incident was the fourth in as many weeks involving students found with needles and other sharp objects.
As a result, the Tasmanian Council on AIDS, Hepatitis and Related Diseases called for better education around bloodborne viruses, saying blood awareness could be introduced through the national curriculum.
