A 14-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing another teenager at a high school in central west NSW.
Police were called to a fight at the school in Orange about 2pm on Wednesday, and officers used pepper spray to break up the brawl.
A 15-year-old student suffered a puncture wound to his chest and was taken to hospital for surgery on the non-life threatening injury.
The younger boy was arrested at an Orange home on Thursday afternoon and charged with reckless wounding in company.
He was granted bail to appear before a children's court on August 31.
