Girl gang on 'playground' rampage at Bowwral High School

byBruce McDougall, Daily Telegraph, April 11, 2008

FEMALE intruders entered a public secondary school and viciously assaulted a 14-year-old girl on the same day Merrylands High School was attacked this week.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal that the teenage student at Bowral High School, in the Southern Highlands, suffered head and rib injuries after being set upon by three older girls armed with a garbage bin.

The victim's mother Louise Forster said yesterday her daughter Stevie-Lee, a Year 9 student, was forced against a fence, bashed on the head with the garbage bin and punched during the lunchtime attack.

The Bowral revelations emerged as police received numerous reports from schools fearing a repeat of the Merrylands violence.

One parent claimed her son was told more attacks were imminent and that those planning them were buying school uniforms to "blend in".

Detective Inspector Jim Stewart played down the threat, saying reports of escalating tensions between schools was being assessed, but there was no need to panic over "Chinese whispers".
"At this stage we believe there isn't any credible threat," Insp Stewart said.

Mrs Forster said her daughter was treated for bruising to her nose, eyes and body and for lumps on her head.

"Stevie-Lee wants to go back to school but she is too scared because she has heard they plan to come back and finish her off," Mrs Forster said.

"She knew (them) from Year 7 but she doesn't know why she was attacked."

Mrs Forster said she was seeking an apprehended violence order against the assailants, believed to be aged between 15 and 17. One of them had been expelled from the school.

"The three of them have been bragging about it at the railway station, showing off the bruises on their fists," she said.

Goulburn MP Pru Goward, who received a complaint from Stevie-Lee's family, said she was horrified to learn of the "vicious and unprovoked attack by intruders on school grounds".

Ms Goward said the incident should be given the highest priority by the Education and Police Ministers.

Police are investigating the assault.
