Auction time at Orara High

IN a last hit-out before the end of high school and the HSC exams, Orara High School Year 12 students conducted their Annual Slave Auction.

Students dress up and 'sell their services' to staff, who compete at 'auction' for the students they believe will give them the best value for money.

More than $1000 was raised on the day and will be donated to Year 12's charity, which this year is the Children's Ward at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus.

As an added bonus the 'Ninja's' challenged their buyer, Mr Woodcock, to put in an extra $20 for every football passed through the basketball hoop from halfway - luckily only one went in.

At Year 12's final assembly vice-captains Sammi Carvill and Euan Provost presented Mr Steve Rodwell from the Coffs Harbour Health Campus with a cheque for $4680 being the total raised for this worthwhile charity.

The money will be used to buy a Signature Neonatal Infusion Pump, for babies needing to be hospitalised in the Special Care Nursery or Paediatric Unit.
