Two high school students have been filmed exchanging blows while their peers egged them on until one was left motionless on the ground.

His opponent then throws him onto the ground before jumping on top of him and laying a series of punches into the back of his head.

The students around them begin to cheer and encourage their peer to continue punching his downed opponent.

‘Wipe that c***,’ one student yells.

The group then rushes in to break up the fight when they see the boy lying on the ground is not moving.  

His opponent is pulled away from the fight and the motionless boy is turned onto his back.

The video was posted online before it was taken down by the Queensland Department of Education.

It was the latest addition to a worrying trend in Mackay where high school students have been uploading videos of brawls to social media.

The videos are available on a private Facebook account and include footage of students from across the city exchanging blows and bullying each other.
