Nimmo

Nimmo spent two years training to be a guide dog, but in the end he was thought to be too ‘chilled out’ to make it as a fully fledged working guide dog. We are so pleased that he didn’t pass the final test, as Nimmo has now been allocated by Guide Dogs to Treloar School to be a buddy dog. His relaxed and patient temperament makes him perfect for working with our students, and it is good he is really quite a big dog, because it means more students will be able to reach him to stroke him. He is a cross between a golden retriever and a German Shepherd and really is a beautiful, calm dog. The highlight of his day at school is his lunchtime walk – he particularly likes it if he meets another dog to play with. Nimmo is on a diet and so he isn’t allowed any treats to make sure he stays fit and healthy. We have lots of ideas as to how we will use him to support students in the long term, especially as a means to motivate students and promote a sense of well being. In the short term, Nimmo is settling in to life at Treloar’s with a modified timetable, basing only in Music with Sue Lad as his special friend.

Students enjoy work experience at Eagle Radio

Six School students (Charlie, Marc, Nic, Lucy, Connor and David) have recently completed educational and work related workshops at Eagle Radio in Guildford. This was the first time that the School has worked with Eagle Radio who made adaptions to enable the students to access the studio. Students completed six sessions and have developed new skills including interviewing techniques (they all interviewed Wes Venn), creating adverts, learning about target audience and how to prepare for a radio show. They all spent time in the recording studio and all enjoyed a celebratory session with Gemma King. All six students have created their own radio show and will shortly be receiving a CD with all of their work.
