Scores of students at the Tarrant High School were left traumatized as they witnessed a schoolmate knifing another during a fight Wednesday morning.
The stabbing occurred shortly after 11 o’clock and sent frightened students scampering for cover.
“I am traumatized. It happened right in front of me,” quoted a female student vigorously.
“I saw the boy bleeding walking pass me,” added the student, who said she felt “fearful and nervous” throughout the day, following the incident.
The incident threatens to set the Molynes Road-based institution back in its effort to recast itself as a school for all, where learning can take place in a peaceful and safe environment.
Our news team has since learnt that the student who was stabbed and his attacker are both in fifth form. We were unable to ascertain his condition as calls to the school went unanswered.
A student said the boy was stabbed in the side during the lunchtime brawl before being rushed to the school nurse.
The brawl is a spill over from an off-campus altercation Tuesday, Loop News has been informed.
A student told Loop News in an interview that the fighters on Wednesday exchanged threats of violence before the melee and said they would prove who was bad.
“Students were running and screaming,” a student said, describing the scene after the knife came into play.
