One distressed boy Riley, 14, told The West Australian his teacher locked the students in the cooking cupboard as the incident unfolded.

His mum raced to the school after getting a text from his teacher.

‘(The teacher) said they heard shots out in the carpark and the kids ran in and at first they were quite calm because they thought it was as joke.

‘But when they realised it was more serious they barricaded themselves in the cooking cupboard.

‘I said: ‘What’s going on?’ and she said there’s a shooter here. Then I just came straight up here.’

The mother added her traumatised son won’t be attending school on Thursday. The area remains cordoned off to the public.
