Kids go on a bender at school ball; Hospital for girl, 15.
Less than two hours after the bash started, an ambulance was called for the 15- year-old who was said to have been sick on her dancing partner then keeled over.
She spent the night in hospital and parents were also called to collect other drunken kids.
Furious head Colin Brown sent seven children home for two days as punishment.
The Record can reveal that the third and fourth-year pupils swigged from bottles of alcopops before arriving for their annual party at Lenzie Academy, Dunbartonshire.
One insider said: "A few kids were quite out of it by the time they got there.
"The teachers were concerned about one girl and called an ambulance."
Mr Brown refused to discuss the party. But local council education convener Ron McInally said: "A number of pupils had bought alcohol in Lenzie and drank it before they came to the dance."
The school is due to hold two more balls this week. But kids have been told not have booze on their breath, and that handbags will be searched for bottles.
It's the latest in a string of scandals to hit the academy.
They include drunken youngsters trashing a nearby house and several pupils sent home after being caught with drugs.
