Suspension for assault


TWO students have been suspended after a 15-year-old girl was assaulted with a stick.

The Shailer Park State High School student was assaulted by two juveniles last week. It is understood the students were known to each other.

A Department of Education spokesman said the school had acted “swiftly” to suspend two students.

“The school guidance counsellor is monitoring the needs of the affected students and staff to provide support in any way they require,” he said.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said the investigat­ion was ongoing. “No physical injuries were sustained during the incident,” he said.
