Mum of student stabbed in high school attack says school could have done better

‘I was shaking, crying and most of all worried’

Mother of 15-year-old girl injured in a stabbing attack at a Sydney high school has spoken out on Facebook accusing the school of dropping the ball.

‘When I heard the news this morning about my daughter I was shaking, crying and most of all worried about my daughter,’ she wrote according to 7 News.

‘The thing that upsets me even more is that the school did not contact me or the emergency contact number that I provided to them when they were supposed to contact me immediately as soon as it happened.’

A male student, 16, and a teacher, Carolyn Cox, 48, were also stabbed in the attack.

NSW Police confirm that the victims are recovering, and their injuries were not life-threatening.
