Police have opened an investigation into the origins of threatening emails that disrupted more than 20 Sydney high schools today.
Students, teachers and school staff were evacuated and police raided the school premises but said “no objects of interest were found”.
“Unfortunately, more than 20 schools across Sydney were affected by emails threatening bombs,” Education Secretary Sarah Mitchell told ABC.
Police said initial investigations “suggest the threats are interlinked,” and detectives from the cybercrime team will lead the investigation to determine the source of the emails.
It also interrupted some students taking their college degree exams.
“Obviously this is incredibly stressful for any student involved,” said Ms. Mitchell.
“You can file adversity claims with the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), taking into account that your exams may have been suspended,” she said.
“It is very serious business and there are very severe penalties for this type of threat and the police will investigate thoroughly.”
A NESA spokesman said the panel was working with the school sector to understand the impact of today’s events on morning and afternoon HSC exams.
“No student has to retake an exam,” said Ms. Mitchell.
