PENROSE ROTARY CLUB/ ONE TREE HILL COLLEGE
ROTARY ENRICHMENT PROGRAMME
ENRICHMENT WITH MANA
The Rotary Enrichment Programme (REP) at One Tree Hill College was developed from a reading support initiative set up by past principal Anne Dunphy and businessman Harvey Alison, representing the Penrose Rotary Club.
Seventeen years on and two very supportive principals later, REP is a well-established reading support programme that is strongly integrated into the teaching and learning programmes of One Tree Hill College and its whole school community.
The REP programme is seen by management and staff as a part of the college’s literacy delivery, and as such, students selected on the programme have ‘REP’ appear on their official college timetable.
Feedback from teachers continually reinforces the learning that takes place on REP, with teachers noticing a growing confidence in the students in their curriculum classes. This is because the REP centres on current core subject vocabulary.
 
Its standing in the community is now such that the selection of students takes into consideration recommendations from contributing schools, requests from parents who wish their children to be part of the REP programme, or requests from the students themselves.
Harvey Alison is still involved in the project, and the Penrose Rotary Club continues to be a major funder (ably assisted by local businesses). There is now a dedicated teacher-in-charge, Brian Langdon (an experienced classroom teacher), and a classroom dedicated for use by the programme. There are now 50 students who move through the programme each year, and 60-plus volunteer reading tutors who offer 1-1 tuition for students.
Principal Nick Coughlan says, “REP is learning at its best – a community initiative making a real difference.”
