  • Both of these kids are both going to need to see a psychiatrist. One obviously for his behaviour (no matter what the reason) and the other for trauma. Just think that if the boy was just a year younger he wouldn’t even have got a slap on the wrist because you cant be charged with anything under the age of 10.


  • oh wow I hope it was a horrible accident and not anything else


  • Maybe the boy had been bullied and was seeking revenge. I don’t condone the use of scissors at school anyway. Next they will need metal detectors at schools. They only need to be used for sewing lessons. You don’t need scissors with points to cut paper if doing craft work.


  • Petrifying! How can a 11-years old child think about harming someone else??? :-(


  • Unfortunately I have seen a few little primary aged thugs who would do thi.


  • It sounds like the 11 year old is a nasty boy and should be charged.


  • So sad that kids feel compelled to stab a fellow classmate – what is teaching these children that it is ok to lash out and hurt another child?

    I hope that the child that was stab recovers well and feels strong and safe enough to go back to school!


  • Oh my goodness. Primary school?
    That’s terrible
