Queensland Ambulance Service senior operations supervisor Patrick Berry said they were still trying to ascertain toxicology results but they believed the boys had swallowed a drug and were initially treating them for an overdose.

The families of all the boys affected have been contacted and several students are being spoken to by police.

Paramedics arrived to find a number of students suffering adverse affects from an unknown substance.

"Our primary concern at the moment is to ensure their wellbeing which I'm confident is being looked after", Mr Dorrington said.
