A backpack was lying on the ground alongside a knife, a meat cleaver, a Stanley knife and some scissors. There was also a water bottle and a mobile phone.

The arrested boy has been taken to Fairfield police station.

As the new education year began this week principal Michael Bryce posted a video on the school's Facebook page saying Bonnyrigg High was "one of the best schools in NSW".

Police will hold a media conference at Fairfield at 11.30am.

The school caters to 1150 students.

A woman whose younger sister witnessed the stabbing told AAP her sibling was badly shaken by Thursday's incident.
