Police are now desperately appealing for help to track down those responsible.

A man, described as being Caucasian and wearing a beanie, was seen to throw a number of objects around the time of the incident.

Police say he may have been in the middle of the median strip or on Beaudesert Road outside the school at the time.

“Throwing rocks onto a roadway or at vehicles is an offence and this sort of behaviour could have terrible consequences for any victims,” police said.
