I admit I have a different stance of the subject bc of my upbringing. Just as a person that's grand father died of smoking or a brother from a drug addiction iykwim. DH also had alcoholic parents so we are probably over anxious about the topic. I can't change how I feel, and again I wouldn't agree with an across the board ban.
I don't believe alcohol should be at a school. If it is out school grounds then sure, go for your life, but if he fete is actually in school grounds then I dont think it's a good look.
I work for an international company, and even we have a very strict alcohol policy. About a year ago it was introduced. No more Friday night drinks in the staff room. No more taking a client out to lunch and having an alcoholic drink (if you do this you are not allowed back into he office, even if it was just a pot of beer etc), no alcohol whatsoever on any work premises etc.
Anyway, as I said, if it's on school grounds then no, if it's off of school property then go for your life.
I used to be a drinker and I believe I still would have thought that way. My partner is an alcoholic (4.5 years sober) and I believe he would feel the same way too. I no longer drink pretty much because he doesn't do. I still used to have a couple when we went out but he doesn't do it's boring I have 1 or 2 drinks on ur own.
