Mother to front court accused of stabbing Byron Bay school teacher

A MOTHER is due to front court on Wednesday after allegedly stabbing a male teacher with a pair of scissors at a Byron Bay primary school.

The 31-year-old is accused of attacking the 28-year-old man around 7am on Tuesday at Byron Bay Public School.

The victim was left with wounds to his face and arms. He was taken to a local hospital before being transferred to Tweed Hospital in a stable condition for surgery


Police allege the two were “speaking on the premises before she approached him with what’s believed to be a pair of scissors”.

The NSW Education Department said strict security measures were put in place until it was deemed safe for the school to begin operating normally again.

It says counselling is also being offered to students and staff.

The woman involved has since been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and entering enclosed lands without a lawful excuse and is due to face Tweed Heads Local Court.

The reason for the alleged attack remains unknown at this stage.
