Religious knife used in stabbing at Sydney high school
Ben Fordham has revealed a school is defending the possession of religious knives after a stabbing earlier this month.
A 16-year-old boy was stabbed during lunchtime at Glenwood High School.
A 14-year-old boy was charged with two counts of wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Ben understands a religious knife was used in the stabbing.

The Principal assures parents they are “working with the Department and community representatives to discuss how best to enable students to meet aspects of their religious faith and, at the same time, ensure our school remains a safe place for students and staff.”
