My school fundraiser is a marquee at the races and drinks are included in the ticket price. My boss, the principal, works behind the bar. It's a great day out!!

FTR, I think teaching children responsible consumption of alcohol is important - I just don't feel that school events are the place for that learning to occur. And in regards to Australia's drinking culture, I think it's important to show children that we can have an event without adults needing to drink.

It's an large inner city school. They get more from the community than just the parents, which is actually nice for the school environment.
And yep that's what they make and no one gets drunk. The bar opens at 2pm and closes at 9pm.
My sisters kids went there so I've been to a lot of their events.

OP I'm with you. It annoys me to see alcohol at school events. I also agree with the sentiment that for a few hours on one or two nights a year we can go without.

Our school up until 2014 allowed alcohol but there was an incident at the 14 Christmas events where a child got hurt and they had to call an ambulance because parent had too much to drink and that was the end of alcohol at school functions although the fete still has a bar.

I don't like the thought of alcohol being served on school grounds regardless of the time of day. It's unnecessary and settling a bad example. If I can't put a tiny teddy in my kids lunchbox then wtf is the school doing serving grog.

Good Lord. It seems people take offence to everything these days.
One of my friends told me that at her Preppie's "Welcome Morning", for the parents, at her daughter's Catholic Primary School, they served champagne. Giddy-up, I say.
At my Preppie's "Welcome BBQ", hosted by the P&F (Parents & Friends), which was after school earlier this year, I brought along 2 bottles of wine and some plastic wine glasses. Not only was it not discouraged, the Principal joined us for aforementioned beverage! No-one got spastic, or chundered in the bushes.
You guys must be much better Mummies than me, because there are some days I NEED a drink to help me cope with my 5yo and 2yo, and stop me from throttling the little blighters!!

Nobody is saying you're a bad mother or that you can't have a wine to relax. And to be honest, I don't know how anybody could relax with a drink at a packed school function when you're supposed to be supervising your small children.
I don't drink very often but if I do, I like to be somewhere away from my kids where I can enjoy it without being interrupted.
