Headmaster Dr. Alan Campbell says the school is concerned about the incident that took place in the rowing shed on Saturday.
“We take the welfare of all students very seriously and are currently in contact with the Queensland Police Child Protection Unit who are conducting an investigation to understand how this incident happened,” he said.
“Of course there is never any justification for bringing a knife into a school environment and we are not aware of any such incidents having occurred before.”
dr Campbell said the school strives to create a safe and supportive environment.
“This incident reminds us that, more than ever, the young people in our care are asking us to always be vigilant and sensitive while setting clear boundaries and high standards for the behavior expected of us,” he said.
Queensland Police said a 14-year-old boy was treated under the provisions of the Youth Justice Act.
“Morningside’s Child Protection and Investigations Unit has worked closely with the school as part of the investigation and has continued to provide support,” a spokesman said.
