Busselton Police have charged a Geographe teenager with assault of a public officer and trespass following a violent incident at Busselton Senior High School on May 2.
A deputy principal was taken to hospital for medical treatment after the assault.
It will be alleged the 14-year-old boy entered the school grounds and was advised by the victim to leave, which he did.
The boy returned later that day, at about 1.40pm and, when told by the 50-year-old victim to leave, it is alleged he punched the victim.
He will appear in Bunbury Children’s Court today.
In a separate incident, a different student attempted to physically hurt another staff member.
A Department of Education spokesperson confirmed the alleged attacks.
They said other staff stepped in to help the staff member and moved the student and other students away from the area and called the police.
It was a short time later the second incident occurred.
“Police are investigating the two incidents,” they said.
“The two students have both been suspended from school for the maximum of 10 days, and may face being removed from the school permanently.
“The staff member who was assaulted has had medical treatment and been released from hospital and is being offered the school’s full support.”
Yesterday’s violence towards teachers, follows the serious assault of a student in March.
A 15 year-old boy was charged with assault occasioning bodily harm over the attack.
