Absolutely stupid, and if they were a little older I'd have had no hesitation in hoping they suffered serious problems in doing so. However, being of that age, it's a matter of the lack of discipline in modern times and just kids being kids.
I would like to know how the media/anyone knew they copied it from Waterloo Road. Did they confess to that? If so, it's well deserved. Who's to say it wasn't just coincidence.

The ethanol that you would use in most schools is not pure - it's typically got benzene in it (because you can't get pure alcohol by distilling it from an alcohol/water mixture so you add benzene) and might have methanol added (you can then avoid paying excise duty).
this then makes it a pretty hazardous cocktail - as a one off it won't do much harm but if you thought you could use it as cheap booze on a regular basis then you'd be on dodgy ground!!

I don't pay duty on mine - but you do have to apply to Customs & Excise first (for school use only). I always tell the kids it will make them go blind, stops them being tempted to take a swig!

I'm sure that the first time ethanol was used in science (year 7 or 8) we were told not to drink it as it contained benzine which was likely to make us go blind and make our stomachs bleed
are science teachers afraid to upset the little darlings now!
never underestimate the power that fear has over children
