On Saturday 13 May the Friends of Treloar's held their annual Plant Sale here at Treloar's. Despite the weather, a large number of visitors enjoyed the stalls, music, raffle and teas & cakes in the Jowett Centre and on the piazza. Beauty products and plants grown in our greenhouse were, as usual, very popular items.
A huge thank you to the Friends, who through this event, have raised more than £3,500 for Treloar's.

Treloar College art students were one of a group of artists whose designs were selected as part of a project to create benches honouring Jane Austen. Over the Easter holidays, local artists Fiona Pearce, Penny Fleet, Karen Burling and Lisa Bartlett took the students' design and applied it to the bench. When the students came back this week they were able to meet up and admire the stunning work of both parties. We look forward to seeing the bench on public display as part of the 'Sitting with Jane' trail from June to August 2017. http://ow.ly/i/uc8Tr http://ow.ly/i/uc8TA http://ow.ly/i/uc8TJ http://ow.ly/i/uc8U0 http://ow.ly/i/uc8Ue

On Monday 27th March Glaziers Hall once again played host to The Treloar Talks. Treloar’s patron Alastair Stewart OBE hosted the event which saw 4 speakers address a variety of topics. Dame Clare Tickell shared her views on how childhood behaviours can impact the decisions we make as adults; former student Tom Yendell spoke of his experience of living without both arms and how Treloar’s helped shaped his artistic career; Prem Goyal OBE, spoke of his journey from India to the US and finally to his business success in London and how he now passionately supports charities and businesses as a result; and Treloar’s parent James Melville-Ross shared his experiences of being a parent to twins, Alice and Tommy, who were both born prematurely with cerebral palsy and were born prematurely and now attend Treloar School.
This event, now in its second year, raised a gross profit of over £3,000 for Treloar’s.

School student Poppy, her brother Sam and father Rob will be taking part in the Brighton Marathon this coming Sunday raising money for Treloar’s. Eleven year old Poppy, who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and is the instigator of this challenge, will be pushed around the course in her wheelchair by Sam with a bit of help from her dad when necessary. The three of them will appear this evening on TV station ‘That’s Solent’ (Freeview Channel 7 in the Solent area). For those who cannot view the channel, the interview can be found on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkg2qcrA-K4.
Poppy and Rob were also interviewed this morning on BBC Radio Surrey (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04x0ps8, go to approximately 2 hours 25 minutes) and an Eagle Radio interview with Sam is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.
There is still time to sponsor them – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Rob-Jones52.
We wish Team Jones the very best of luck on Sunday for what will no doubt be a truly memorable day for them all. We are so grateful for their support and the money raised will help Poppy and her fellow students live their lives more independently.

Beautiful kites made by local artist John Browning are currently displayed on the back windows and wood panelling in the Jowett Centre and this past Tuesday John paid a special visit to Treloar’s to give our students curated tours of his exhibition. John had a very busy and enjoyable morning with five classes coming along to find out more.
John talked to our students about the places, music and people that inspired his kite designs. He asked the students what some of his kites reminded them of, and was delighted with the responses: “I love finding out what other people think of when they look at my kites. One of my kites was inspired by the star constellation Orion. A student told me today that it reminds her of a person on a swing. I can see exactly what she means now but I had never spotted the resemblance before.”
John’s kites are made from plant-based papers that he makes himself. Many students were fascinated by the idea of making their own paper from leaves and really enjoyed looking through the box of treated leaves and paper samples that John had brought with him.
An exhibition of kite art by students entitled “Let’s go fly a kite” is running alongside John’s exhibition and students attending the tours were keen to find out what John thought of their creations; needless to say John was very, very impressed!
Members of the public are welcome to visit both exhibitions which run until the 20th April, week days only, from 9am to 5pm.

On Wednesday 8 March Treloar’s students and staff were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Dr Andrew Charles Parmley to the Holybourne campus. Accompanying the Lord Mayor was Sheriff William Russell as well as Masters, Prime Wardens and Deputy Masters of 24 Livery Companies.
This annual visit is an opportunity to celebrate Treloar’s heritage and link back to its founding in 1908 by then Lord Mayor Sir William Purdie Treloar and to thank those attending for their support. Visitors were given the opportunity to tour the campus and were able to visit classes in session where they learned, amongst other things, acids and alkalis in a science lesson.
The Lord Mayor and his party were also able to visit Gauvain House, which since the completion of its renovation in September 2016, houses 18 students in a state-of-the-art accommodation along the lines of communal living.

Treloar’s recently held a ‘Heroes and WOW’ week to raise much needed funds for the purchase of a brand new coach. Both staff and students were challenged to fundraise throughout the week and on the Friday the High Sheriff of Hampshire joined in the celebrations to announce the grand total and see everyone dressed as their favourite hero.
Fundraising challenges ranged from guess the weight of the cake competition, soap selling superstars, a sublime science workshop, a flipping fantastic Pancake Race, a Lucky Dip Tombola, a head shave, lots of scrummy cake sales, two unlucky members of staff being cream-pied, a balloons for the bus release, an Antony and Cleopatra performance, obstacle races, raffles, relays, sponsored trike and scooter rides, car washing, caricatures, a sponsored sing-a-thon and much more!
The monies raised will go toward the purchase of a state of the art coach. No young person should be restricted by their circumstances and transport is absolutely vital for the students to travel off campus and get out and about. The new coach is 12.5m long and will be able to transport up to 11 students in electric powered wheelchairs, 15 passenger seats for staff and ample storage space below. This means that larger groups of students can all go out together in the one vehicle, whether on a class trip or at the weekend for enrichment activities. It will cost £245,000 to purchase but Treloar’s is already over halfway there with pledges and donations.
Head of Fundraising Jon Colville is delighted with the amount raised, “It was just a fantastic week. All charities are feeling the pinch at the moment so to have our staff and students so enthusiastically support the coach appeal was such an emotional and humbling experience. The wonderful community spirit will last in my memory.”
