A 14-year-old boy has been charged over an alleged knife incident at a high school in Orelia.

It's alleged the boy took the large knife out of his bag after an altercation broke out with another student over an umbrella on Monday at Gilmore College.

Video of the incident shows the accused allegedly threatening the student with the knife before a teacher intervenes and takes the weapon off him.

Luckily, no one was injured.

The 14-year-old boy has been charged with going armed to cause fear and is due to appear in the Rockingham Children's Court today.
