HAMPTON SCHOOL cc Colin HARDING
Thank you for letter dated 28 July 2006 and the Appeal brochure "450
Anniversary Campaign for a Performing Arts Centre".
This e-mail is to offer a different form of long-term Bursary that could
greatly assist with raising the funds required for your current campaign
and provide a long-term work experience for Hampton students.
The offer is in the form of a Royalty to the School for implementing the
UK version of an electronic "Leadership Development and Responsibility
Practice" methodology for Volunteer sports.
This eMethodology has been developed from earlier research with
Hampton School in 1988.
The overall programme is called Electronic Volunteer Administration
and Management Process - eVAMP.

D Next Steps
A OVERVIEW OF E-VAMP PROJECT
It has been developed over the last 2 years with a Junior Football (soccer)
side in the Pittwater Peninsula Northern Beaches Sydney
The Club has over 1,000 juniors at 12 different local schools and plays
in a District Football Association with 16 similar size Football Clubs.
The key objectives of eVAMP include:
1 Enable amateur sports clubs to comply with Child Protection
2 Provide a platform to teach "Leadership Development and
Responsibility Practice" to junior sports people
3 improve the coaching of junior players
4 Enable local businesses to sponsor junior (6-18 yr) sports
5 utilise Information Technology and Communications [ITC] to
improve the administration and volunteer co-ordination within
I was at Hampton Grammar from 1961-1968 and played Rugby for the
Old Boys from 1970 - 1982 including 4 years as Club Captain.
In Apr 1982 I was transferred to Australia by my employer Burroughs
Computers (now Unisys) as Director of Office Automation to develop
and implement an Office Automation strategy.
In 1988 I returned to the UK and met with Norman BRITNOR then Acting
Head Master to conduct a series of surveys on using an Information
Code devised by my father for resource management within the School.
In 1990 I met with Graham ABLE your predecessor to discuss the School
being a development site for the new electronic coding methodology which
had been adopted by the International Airlines Committee ATA 100.
My father was the BOAC Representative on the ATA 100 Committee
Hampton letter for Project Joint-venture 1990
In 1999 the methodology won the first prize in an international Software
contest hosted by the Mayor of Stockholm.
The King of Sweden presented us with the Trophy.
For the past 2 years we have been developing an Application for Sports
Communities (eVAMP - Electronic Volunteer Administration & Management
Process) that enables local businesses to sponsor Junior team web pages
and to provide an application to facilitate Schools to network
electronically to update team results.
Benefits of an Electronic Volunteer Sports Club
The core module of eVAMP is to assist Clubs meet the Australian Child
In the UK there is a similar piece of legislation called Children Act 2004
which came into force on 01 Apr 2006
In Australia the Australian Sports Commission has developed guide-lines
for Children and Sport
In England, Sport England has identified "The Contribution of Sport
to meeting the Needs of Children and Young People"
C UK REFERENCE SITE
We are looking for a UK reference test site to tailor the system for
the UK market.
As ITC is constantly in a state of change the Business Model has
been adopted of on-going monthly payments to enable changes to be
accommodated in the application.
The reference site will receive electronic Royalties for 5 years as part
of the Business Model.
It may also be worth considering the marketing, training and support
for eVAMP as a project for the 5th and 6th form pupils as part of
If Hampton School is prepared to consider the offer I will provide
I am planning to visit the UK in 2007 as part of a trip for the 450
Anniversary dinner and the Rugby World Cup 2007.
Part of that trip is to present to the OHA Rugby Club my 0ld
Hamptonian Rugby Shirt signed by the 2003 Australian Rugby World
Cup team that lost to England in the Final 17-14.
D NEXT STEPS
Please advise if this type of Royalty Funding for the Appeal is of interest
