Scones a treat for seniors

IT was back to the classroom for a group of Coffs Harbour seniors yesterday.

Orara High School threw open the doors to its kitchen so hospitality students could show off their cooking skills.

After a morning tea featuring ‘scrummy’ biscuits, quiche and lamb kofta, some students demonstrated how to make sushi, and then got the seniors to have a go.

But the highlight for many were trays of old-fashioned favourites more reminiscent of generations ago. The batches of scones went down a treat and were for some a highlight of Seniors Week so far.

Today’s Seniors Week activi- ties include an Ecumenical Service at St John’s in

McLean St, a singalong prior to a special screening of The Kings Speech at 12.30pm at Sawtell Cinema, and a concert at Club Coffs from 2pm.
