The Year 7 boy is seen crying as he stands trapped between the wall and bathroom sink with his Year 9 attacker blocking him off, Adelaide Now reported.

The bully turns around to smile at his peers cheering at him before demanding an apology from the boy.

‘Just say sorry,’ he says.

‘Say sorry for what?’ the frightened boy responds. 

The crowd then egg on the bully with several taunts with several yelling at him to punch the boy.

‘Hit him! Go again,’ one student says. 

Another adds: ‘Look at him bro, he’s dead as.

A third says: ‘It’s called a f***ing punch, do it … one good hit.’

Footage of the beating has prompted South Australia Police to launch an investigation.

‘No one has been charged with any offending at this time and police continue to investigate the incidents,’ a spokesperson said.

‘Police are working with staff and students at the high school.’

Education Minister Blair Boyer told the ABC the students involved in the incident had been suspended.

It is the latest video to emerge from the school after another three altercations were filmed at the premises between September 10 and 26. 

South Australia Premier Peter Malinauskas said an experienced, former school principal and security guards had been hired to stamp out the violent behaviours.

‘Seeing this vision of deplorable violence at one of our schools is particularly confronting,’ he said.

‘There is no place for violence anywhere, let alone in our schools.

‘Clearly, there is a need for action.’

Daily Mail Australia contacted South Australia’s Department of Education for comment.
