More sporting success for Team Treloar’s
Treloar’s Table Cricket Team entered the county competition held at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Friday 10 February. We were competing against eight other Hampshire schools for a chance to advance in the competition.
Team Captain Joe led his team, consisting of Nigarish, Margaret, Sally, Andre and Alessandro, through a series of matches, resulting in qualification through to the regional event to be held at Sussex Cricket Ground in May.
Boccia news – School student Will won a bronze medal and Cameron won gold in the latest Heathcoat Cup Competition at Hatfield. They have both qualified through to the Heathcoat Finals where they will join Jamie, Josh, Dan, Peter and Andre, who all qualified at Guildford earlier this year.

School student David recently took part in work experience at the VUE cinema in Basingstoke. As part of his work experience, he wrote the following review of the movie Lion:
Lion is a captivating and compelling film about emotion, loss, love and tragedy. It starts off in 1986 when 5 year old Saroo (played by Sunny Pawar) went on a train and got lost and couldn’t find his family. He was eventually adopted by an Australian family a year later. The mum is played by Nicole Kidman.
Twenty years later, he looks for his family on Google maps. The adult Saroo, excellently played by Dev Patel, tries to find his family and has to deal with the emotional fall out. In my opinion both Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman deserve an Oscar. Unless you have a habit of not crying in films, guaranteed you will cry at this. I give the film four stars out of 5 and 9 1/2 out of 10. I would be very surprised if it didn’t get any Oscars. The cinematography was good.
It deals with family and emotion in a very sensitive way. You can tell that the film was based on a true story and was very respectful to this.
I highly recommend this film to any film lovers!

When Treloar’s moved from Lower Froyle in 2010 we were aware that people had asked to have their loved ones memorialised there during the 60 years we spent in Froyle. Because of this we have created a permanent memorial garden at the old site to honour those staff and students who had passed away and been memorialised there. We also installed a bench in front of St Mary’s Church in Froyle in memory of those who had attended or worked at the Froyle campus.
Three roses, as well as a “Royal Malus” tree planted in memory of Ron Jerram, have been moved to this memorial garden. The ashes for Victoria Holliday and Peter and Robert Harris were also moved and rededicated with a lovely service.

Twenty year old Christopher is in his second year at Treloar College. He is a very talented musician and loves to perform. Last autumn, as part of one of his College objectives and in keeping with Treloar’s links with local community groups, Christopher visited The Limes Day Centre in Alton to meet their attendees and play the piano for them.
That encounter has led to many more repeat visits, including a Christmas Carol session, which have been very well received. He continues to visit the Day Centre and perform, to the delight of both attendees and Christopher himself.

Ofsted has rated Treloar College as “Outstanding” in all aspects of its provision, confirming that it is one of the very best specialist colleges in the country.
Inspectors were particularly impressed with the exceptional progress that students make at Treloar’s in “developing their communication skills and in improving the skills they need to live and/or work more independently”. Staff and governors were praised for creating a culture of high aspirations where students are given outstanding support. Amongst many highlights, the Treloar’s transition team were commended for the range and quality of work experience that are arranged for students and inspectors also singled out the innovative use of technology throughout the organisation.
Treloar’s Principal Martin Ingram is thrilled with the Report, “The staff here are outstanding both in their professional expertise and the way they support our young people. They provide the widest range of opportunities to help them to achieve their potential.
We are tremendously proud of our students and their commitment to learning. The inspectors confirmed this commitment and commented that ‘students display excellent attitudes to learning. They are diligent and keen to develop their skills and understanding’. It is an exciting to time be at Treloar’s.”

Thank you to all those who voted for Treloar's at Tesco Alton and Tesco Four Marks. We have been awarded £10,000 in their Bags for Life Challenge! This funding will go towards creating an outdoor musical and sensory area. This interactive outdoor environment will have giant musical instruments specially adapted to be accessible for our young people and will appeal to all the different senses, nurturing educational and social development and addressing physical, emotional and intellectual needs. The project will enable students to express their emotions and creativity and explore new musical instruments in a therapeutic way. We will be able to create soundscapes, support key skills development, music skills and create cross-circular links. The instruments are pieces of art and will provide visual as well as aural stimulation for our students.

On Thursday 10th November KS3SC went to watch the Mouth & Foot artist and former student Tom Yendell use his feet to paint a painting of poppies as part of our Remembrance Week. He did two paintings altogether and asked the class what colour they wanted him to do the second one.
Tom was absolutely fascinating to watch – the class were completely mesmerised – and interesting to listen to. Students Ella thought he was ‘inspiring’, Leyla said that Tom was ‘very friendly’ and Daniel thought his paintings were ‘beautiful’. Tom spoke to each student individually – encouraging them and taking an interest in who they were and how they like to express themselves and be creative.

Treloar School and College students were the stars of the show at this year’s annual Mansion House fundraising gala dinner in London on 12th October with HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO in attendance.
Jocelyn Watkins, Head of Music, gave a brief welcome and introduced Amy, Henry, Mike and Jamie to the stage, who then gave wonderful performances of songs from the musical The Lion King. Bethany Arnott, Treloar’s teacher, provided sign language through for the 210 guests present, encouraging them to join in. The students were accompanied by the Royal Marines Concert Band Quartet.
It was a very special evening with speeches from Treloar’s parent and patron, Mr Humphrey Hawksley, an author, commentator and foreign correspondent, followed by Treloar’s Royal Patron, HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO, who gave a awe-inspiring speech on the work of Treloar’s and how proud she is to be part of the Treloar’s ‘family’.
The annual event, hosted this year by The Rt Hon the Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman The Lord Mountevans, raised a stunning net profit of £45,000 which will help toward the work Treloar’s does in supporting each student to achieve his or her best in every aspect of life.
