It is reported that the attack started after the boy one of the girls pulled the boy while he tried to leave a classroom.

The impact caused the boy drink to spill onto her uniform.

The boy reportedly went to sit when two girls approached him with one using her uniform to wipe his face.

He allegedly pushed her away and that is when he was set upon by the four girls and beaten.

The boy who has not been back to school since the incident has missed some of his end of year exams and says he does not want to go back to school.
