School balls a
By EMMA BEER
A death during school ball
season has sparked questions as
to whether colleges should be
held responsible for student
Auckland teenager David
Gaynor, a student at King's Col-
lege, died after having been at
the school's ball last weekend.
He had attended a pre-ball,
where alcohol was provided.
Once at the ball he was deemed
intoxicated. He died following
an accident near Auckland's
southern motorway after his
father collected him.
Wellington College head-
master Roger Moses said his
school had a no ball'' policy. It
did not organise student balls,
and had not done so for many
At best a ball could be an
enjoyable night, but the mix of
students and alcohol could cause
problems, he said.
At worst [a ball] can be a
completely unmitigated disas-
ter. It's the pre-ball and post-
ball parties that seem to be the
Regrettably, there is poten-
tial for a lethal mix of alcohol
and immature behaviour.''
He said he knew some
students organised private
functions but these were
nothing to do with the school,
and the boys were not allowed to
market them as such.
If something were to happen
at such an event, he would hope
blame would not come back to
the college. He said he felt it was
unfair for King's College to be
blamed for the actions of a
student after he was in parental
Samuel Marsden Collegiate
School principal Jenny Williams
said the school's leavers' ball
was held at the end of the year.
She said there were not really
any pre-balls because the girls
were busy getting ready, doing
hair, makeup and having photos
If an after-ball happened,
which she believed was unlikely,
the responsibility was not the
school's because it had not
Wellington Girls' College prin-
cipal Julia Davidson said the
Parents Association organised
the ball on the school's behalf.
She said parents were told if
they wanted to hold pre-balls
they should invite a few'' people
so things could be easily
After-parties -- no way. Don't
want to know about them. We
tell parents don't have them,''
She said the reality was if
something did happen it would
of course'' be linked to the
school as it was associated with
a named event.
Every year you hold your
breath and wait. You worry
yourself sick [that something
One King's College parent told
media she felt students didn't
know how to cope because they
come from such privileged
homes and have so much free-
dom and wealth''.
Mr Moses disagreed: Good
and bad choices have nothing to
do with the depth of parents'
It has more to do with,
regrettably, the deeply
entrenched attitudes with
alcohol and the abuse thereof.''
