It's a part of Australian culture to be embraced and encouraged.Start them off as early as possible in my opinion.

That would be ok as long as it's not in a study area.

Probably work better than "voluntary" donations to schools.

The first year I was here, daughter was in Year 1 and I was a bit taken aback to realise that they had had a sweepstake in class and all watched the race on telly. However, it's all done in fun and other than having a laid back end to the school day, none of the kids seemed that hyped up about it. YoungSOB came home with a posh hat she'd made for the occasion this year and no clue who had won and didn't care either, she didn't think it was her though

How about sending them in to stand below your balcony at home, you can practice tutting- tutting and they will learn the value of being and behaving like riff-raff.

Target can sponsor the boys with black suits from their celebrity range; the girls can clamber up on heels.
