A teenager currently serving time in the infamous Banksia Hill facility has seen her sentence cut short despite attempting to kill her teacher in a plot with a friend.

The two female students, aged 13 and 14, stabbed their 55-year-old teacher Colleen Hayes in the armpit in her office at Willetton Senior High School in Perth in November last year.

That same teen had also been confined to their cell for 24 hours on three separate occasions in one week.
