A student has thrown a sandwich at Prime Minister Julia Gillard during a visit to a high school in Canberra.
The white-bread salami and cheese sandwich was tossed over the heads of TV camera operators and other pupils before striking Ms Gillard on the arm.
The sandwich then landed at the prime minister's feet.
"They must have thought I was hungry," Ms Gillard joked afterwards.
Ms Gillard was at Lyneham High School to announce that the ACT had signed up to the Gonski reforms.
The sandwich throw comes just weeks after a Queensland teenager was suspended for a similar stunt.
Kyle Thomson, 16, protested his innocence after receiving the 15-day suspension from Marsden State High School in Logan.
