Children’s charity benefits from Pathlore gift


Kids Camp Inc, a New South Wales charity that runs summer camps for children with diabetes, has been able to radically improve its administration system since it acquired a copy of Pathlore’s Registrar learning management software a few weeks ago.

Pathlore donated the ‘learning management system classroom edition’ copy of Registrar – worth some A$10,000 – when it heard of the charity’s need. Pathlore has also underwritten 12 months free technical support for the software, should it be needed.

Linda Fox, who is vice-president of Kids Camp, explained: “Registrar allows us to record important information about the children – such as their insulin regime, medical records, contact details in emergency and so on – in a properly established database. “Our existing database is built in Microsoft Access. It does not allow us to record all the information we require; it takes up a great deal of computer memory, and we have to photocopy large amounts of information to give to the Kids Camp organisers."

“With Registrar, we can store all the information we need on a laptop computer and take one copy of the data in paper form to the Camp,” she said. “Moreover, with Registrar, we can produce short, composite class reports, rather than have to photocopy each child’s completed forms – which we have to do under our current, Access-based administration system.

“Next year, we are hoping to expand Kids Camp to cater for even more children – which is all the more reason why we need Registrar to help make our administration system even more efficient,” she added.

“I knew about Registrar and its value as an administration software system because I use it at the Australian Nuclear Science Technology Organisation (ANSTO),” continued Linda, who works in ANSTO’s training and human resources department. At ANSTO, we use Registrar to administer all our courses – which cater for the training needs of over 800 ANSTO staff as well as many clients of and contractors to the nuclear industry throughout Australia.”

The job of installing Registrar for Kids Camp has fallen to Tony McArthur, this year’s Camp Director, who works for Delta-Link and spends his time installing computers in schools. Linda Fox is looking forward to operating the system because, as she said: “I find Registrar remarkably simple to use – and it will help us to take even better care of the children and help to increase their enjoyment of the Kids Camp experience.”
