In March 2019, a student sustained serious burns and a staff member minor burns during a school science experiment when methylated spirits was applied to an open flame.

In March 2019, a young school student was injured when their head became trapped between two adjacent lids on a storage box in a playground.

The student put their head between a fully-opened lid and a partially-opened lid that was opening, trapping their head.
