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.
