    That's pretty judgmental based on a tounge in cheek comment. Yes he enjoys a social beer but you would be hard pressed to find a father more devoted to his children's and community activities.

    Me! Except for me I get excited about fairy floss and lucky dips... But would you believe the last fete I went to there were NO lucky dips!!! Infact, one mother at a stall commented "What's a lucky dip??"

    lol no, me too

    and OT, but don't you need a special licence to serve alcohol? if the parents bring a bottle of wine or 6 pack obviously that's different, but with the discussion of beer tents... how is that legal? and I know licences are around 100k

    You can get temporary permit for one off events, restrictions depend on the type of event, what is being served and number of people etc. Permits of that type cost under a hundred dollars.

    If that's the case then they have certainly come a long way since I was in primary school Seriously, all ours were were cake stalls, lucky dips, the fishing game (that was always my favourite), white elephant stalls, book stalls, plant stalls and maybe something the kids had made that they tried to flog back to the parents.

    same...so I guess I'm viewing this from a ''hmmm..is this something I'd like to see introduced at our school" - rather than, "Hmmm..is this something I'd want to have banned from our school", perspective.


    If it was suggested to be introduced in MY suburb, I think I'd vote against it - that is me putting my mcjudgey pants on and weighing up the pros and cons based on the people I see and interact with at the school.


    Most school events i've been to so far with my 7 year old and two 5 and a half year olds - I've haven't had the chance to sit and relax let alone imagine enjoying a refreshing glass of vino!!
    ..I save that for when I get home - put them to bed and open a bottle

    this is me too. I spend all the school events chasing my 18 month old, being dragged around by my 3 year old and being fleeced for more money by my 7 year old. What I would give you to be able sit down and have a glass of wine! No chance.

    In additon to a license I understood you also need someone with a responsible service of alcohol ticket. Not a big deal but someone has to pass the tests and pay the fee to hold this ticket. That's anothe thing that puts us off.
