Bonnyrigg stabbing: Sydney schoolboy stabs teacher and classmates with metal ruler

The 16-year-old - who's been charged with wounding with intent to murder and two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after the incident at Bonnyrigg High - did not appear in Parramatta Children's Court.

"Mack is dead, you hear me?" he said as police led him away.

A student who declined to be named said she was sitting in roll call in the school's science block when a boy entered the room.

It is not yet known what interactions the teacher and the students had with the boy, police say. Police said it was not immediately clear what weapon was used in the stabbing.

'There's no explanation at this stage, I think we just have to wait for the moment, ' Mr Malouf said.

The classroom remained a crime scene on Thursday. "It has come as a surprise to everybody".

Howard Chen emerged from a meeting with the school's principal on Thursday afternoon and said teachers were shocked by the brutal incident.

The boy was not a hard student, had no known issues with his alleged victims and was undergoing mental health assessments on Thursday night.

EARLIER: Police are investigating a stabbing at a Sydney high school.

Police have not been able to interview the three injured people but have started speaking to dozens of students who witnessed the stabbing.

The boy is being questioned at Fairfield Police Station.

A spokesperson for the NSW Department of Education said counselling had been made available at the school for students and staff.
