A 14-year-old boy was stabbed with a pencil at a high school in Northmead on Friday.
Police say two students were waiting for their science class to start when one boy, 13, emptied the 14-year-olds’ bag and pencil case of its contents.
The older boy allegedly laughed and the younger boy stabbed him with a lead pencil, causing a puncture wound under his right ear.
He was taken to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead to have the lead removed.
‘‘The victim was in good spirits and didn’t appear to be in pain,’’ a police spokeswoman said.
