A 17-year-old girl has died from injuries she sustained during an indoor soccer game at a school in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs.

The Education Department says the teenager tripped and made “heavy contact” with a wall at the Kensington Centre special needs school last Thursday afternoon.

She was taken to hospital after being given first aid by school staff and ambulance officers, but her injuries were fatal.

In a statement, her parents say their daughter loved her school, teachers and friends and enjoyed being a part of the “wonderful school community at Kensington”.

The department says it will investigate the incident and has informed police and SafeWork SA.

It says the parents of other students at the centre have been provided with information on counselling support available for their children.
