Boy, 14, stabbed at western Sydney school.
A 14-year-old boy is seriously injured after being stabbed in the back and arm during an "absolutely horrific" attack at a western Sydney school.
The boy was stabbed at Arthur Phillip High School in Parramatta just before 8.30am on Monday.
He has been taken to Westmead Children's Hospital in a stable condition, a NSW Ambulance spokesman said.
Four ambulance crews were sent to the school and a strong police presence remains in place. No arrests have yet been made.
NSW Ambulance inspector Joe Ibrahim said the incident was "every parent's worst nightmare".
"Our paramedics did an exceptional job in stabilising and providing treatment for the teenager who had suffered some pretty serious injuries," he added.
"It's absolutely horrific when we respond to jobs like these, especially when it involves someone so young. It's every parent's worst nightmare."
Victoria enjoys relaxed mask rules, NSW border freedoms.
Mandatory outdoor mask rules in Victoria are no more, as the NSW border reopens to the state ending months of exile.
As part of sweeping changes effective from midnight on Monday, Victorians no longer have to wear masks outdoors unless unable to safely physically distance.
They must still wear masks in indoor environments including workplaces, supermarkets and public transport, and carry them at all times.
