The evening reception was to thank the Treloar’s supporters and to show through the students who attended the message that disability is not a barrier to achievement.

Samantha Cameron welcomed everyone and thanked them for coming. She also expressed how impressed she was by the students she had met. Afterward the students were able to personally speak with Mrs Cameron and tell her of their future plans and how Treloar’s is helping them achieve their goals.

AltonArtive – a very successful enterprise!

As a new collaboration between the vocational art and photography departments, a group of Treloar College students developed a successful mini-enterprise during the course of the autumn term which has continued into this term with a new group of students. Starting with a completely blank slate in November, the students researched possibilities for an enterprise and decided to design, manufacture, market and sell individual unique artist-designed cards printed at the College. Having considered many alternatives, they settled on the brand name of AltonArtive and produced their own logo. The students started with Christmas cards, working out what overheads there were and how much they should charge for the cards. The cards were finished in time for the Treloar’s Christmas Fayre at the beginning of December where they all sold out on the first day!
