Emergency services were called and four ambulance crews subsequently made their way to the scene.
Paramedics found a number of students suffering from injuries to their hands and legs.
No victims have been taken to hospital.
It is believed the wounded will be subject to a blood test to ensure no diseases were transmitted through the needle.
Troy Masters, a student at the school spoke to Seven News out the front of school.
The teenager said the student in question had picked up the needle from a local bus stop.
‘He’s come to school and like a few of his mates, his own mates, and then given them high fives with the needle in his hand.
‘He poked them and then he stabbed a few kids.’
Troy says the victims were initially unconcerned until the student told them he had found the needle in the streets.
He said the victims were ‘scared’ and their parents came and picked them up.
His mother said she came to collect her children as soon as she heard about it.
‘To have something like that happen, instantly as a parent you’re shaken up,’ she said.

New South Wales Police said they were aware of the incident, and are investigating the assault.
In a statement, police said they were told the student wielding the needle was enacting a ‘prank’.
Officers say they are yet to speak to the teenager involved.
