Hello and welcome! Not wonderful news on the A3 camera I'm afraid - it's not worth much. I would say 10 would be fair. You could price it at 15 and see how it goes. Does it have a lens attached to the camera? What is that lens?

Re the additional 80-200mm lens, we really need to know the full text written around the front of the lens. For example the text on the lens below that says 'SMC PENTAX-M zoom 1:3.5 28mm - 1:4 50mm'

It is likely that the 80-200mm lens is a Pentax-M or off-brand lens worth only about 20 but you never know!

You might find the camera to be more useful if you buy some film and take fun photos or even have the (older) children use it before selling it off. That way you at least find out whether it works (which is important for determining its worth) and maybe have some fun and interesting memories captured on film. Though, I don't know what the rules regarding photography in that institution are.
