The aim of this study was to: quantify and compare the extent to which alcohol is used at secondary school events when students are present; examine principals’ level of agreement with these practices; and their awareness of and support for state policies on this issue. A cross-sectional survey of 241 state government secondary school principals in New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria (VIC) was conducted in November 2014 via computer-assisted telephone interviewing.
