Religion and Spirituality
Treloar College aims to be a place where every student can be supported holistically; in mind, body and spirit.
The College embraces young people from all faith backgrounds, including those of no particular faith. A large emphasis is placed on inclusivity and celebrating diversity within the student body. A prayer/mindfulness list has been created which the Chaplain and other staff use to pray/think around the School and College and local community throughout each month.
'Friday Live!' is a weekly interactive gathering including music, news, and a range of guest speakers. A variety of themes are covered during the year including the great festivals of the major world religions.
The College has a Christian foundation, and employs a Chaplain part-time as a resource for the students. The Chaplain is available to talk to students individually, and holds regular services in the College Chapel which students can attend on a voluntary basis. Each year there is an opportunity for students to be baptised and confirmed, for which the Chaplain offers preparation classes.
The College Chapel is a resource for all students, whether or not they are religious, and every effort is made to support the religious needs of students, whatever their background, both in the classroom and in the residential setting.
