Teacher denies supplying girls with alcohol

A SCHOOL teacher from the NSW Mid North Coast has denied supplying young girls with alcohol and orchestrating a bizarre attack on the principal's home.

Andrew Minisini, a deputy principal at Coffs Harbour's Orara High, was arrested late last year after it was revealed he had allegedly given a group of girls alcohol, driven them to the principal's home at Valla Beach and encouraged them to spray obscenities on his walls and fence.

His school office was search and he was suspended from duties.

Police will allege Mr Minisini had befriended a student when he encouraged her to bring some friends to a party on November 29.

Three girls, aged 16 and 17, told police they met Mr Minisini at a motel where they were given alcohol until they were drunk.

Mr Minisini fronted the Coffs Harbour Local Court on Monday charged with two counts of recruiting a child to engage in criminal activity, one count of malicious damage and one count of supplying a minor with alcohol.

He pleaded not-guilty to all four charges and will be back before the court on March 3.
