Learning Resource Centre: Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme

The LRC involves itself in the wider school program in several ways. The Duke of Edinburgh or DOE program is one such example. Students in year 10 opt into this course as an elective choice. Part of the requirements to obtain the award is to participate in a suitable civic or social service. Volunteering in the LRC is a perfect fit for this requirement. The LRC resources are a community resource for all MacRob community members to use, therefore helping to develop and deliver this service is a suitable choice for these students. Every year we have two students, usually one per semester, to assist in various activities in the LRC. These include shelving, sorting, maintaining equipment etc. A record is kept and a report of their successes is written at the conclusion to support their submission for an award. Working in the LRC develops confidence, skills and knowledge of LRC resources and rapport with adults. We very much enjoy being part of this program. More information can be found at:
