Shocking footage has emerged of two students from prestigious schools throwing punches at each other in a violent brawl inside a shopping centre, in full view of horrified onlookers. 

The dramatic incident unfolded at the food court at Westfield Doncaster Shopping Centre in Melbourne’s north-east on Friday afternoon.

The two teens – one of whom reportedly attends Carey Baptist Grammar School and the other, Balwyn High School – were seen hurling punches at one another.

In the footage, one girl wearing a bright orange t-shirt and track pants is seen grappling with another girl wearing a white t-shirt and gym shorts.

As the vicious fight proceeded, the girl in the orange t-shirt forced the other girl down onto the ground and began to throw several punches at her head.

The girl on the ground tried to cover up as she received blows to her head and upper body.

Two other teenagers standing nearby were seen filming the incident on their phones.

The girl in the white t-shirt then managed to get up and continue the brawl before a man and woman intervened to separate the pair.

The girls are understood to have been involved in a heated exchange over Snapchat before tensions boiled over, leading to the physical altercation.

The latest incident is one of several recent fights to have occurred between school students in the food court of the shopping complex.

Carey Grammar Principal Johnathan Walter said the elite college – which charges parents a massive $37,976 per annum in school fees for year 11 and 12 students – was looking into the incident.

‘[The school] is aware of an incident that took place outside of school, involving an altercation between two teenagers, one of whom is a new student at Carey,’ Mr Walter told the Herald Sun.

‘The school is currently conducting an investigation of the incident and is extending appropriate support, counselling and care to the student and her family.’

‘Carey takes all allegations of inappropriate student behaviour very seriously and we are in discussions with the student, parents, police and counsellors to fully understand the situation before taking any further action.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Carey Grammar and Balwyn High School for further comment.

A spokesperson from Victoria’s Department of Education told Daily Mail in a statement that violence has no place in schools.

‘Victorian government schools have zero tolerance for any violence, and incidents of physical altercations in schools are extremely rare,’ the spokesperson said.

‘If any student is alleged to be involved in any illegal activity outside the school environment, the school will always work proactively and closely with Victoria Police, who are responsible for investigating criminal conduct.’

A spokesperson from Victoria Police said they had been made aware of the incident, however a formal report about the altercation has not been made at this stage.

Videos circulating on social media recently have showed dozens of high school students involved in violent fights with one another.

More than a hundred so called ‘fight club’ videos have been uploaded to social media sites over the past six months showing students – many of whom attend elite private schools in Melbourne – throwing other students on the ground before punching and kicking them in disturbing scenes.

Anyone who witnessed the incident at the food court or or has further information has been urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

The allegations were made by three former students who attended the Carey Baptist Grammar School in Melbourne with the alleged abuse to have occurred between the 70s and 90s
