Principal Karen Money said drug incidents at the Richmond school were "extremely rare," the Herald Sun reported.

"We are working with police over an isolated ­incident with a small number of students involving small quantities of marijuana," she said.

"My staff work hard to educate our students on the dangers of drugs.”
