Teen referred to Youth Aid
A 15-year-old girl has been referred to youth aid after she went onto the grounds of Waimate High School and assaulted a pupil.
The girl went into the school on Wednesday with another person, both of whom are former Waimate High School students, principal Janette Packman said.
She said the student who was assaulted is okay. The matter was now being treated as a police investigation because of the seriousness of the incident.
''We're working closely with the police to ensure our students are safe at school.''
She said a trespass order had been taken out to protect the students.
