We were very pleased to welcome the Virgin Media Business Planning Team to Treloar's last week to help at our annual T-Fest music festival. The team helped run games for students during the festival and wrote the following piece for their internal staff blog:
"The team went to assist Treloar’s with their annual T-Fest. The 6th form students organise the annual event from booking acts, decorating the venue, printing t-shirts and advertising. It was a glorious day and the Business Planning team were asked to help set up, clear up and run some games for the students to participate in.
It was lots of fun, we got to see some of the students perform as well as local bands and a rock choir. We met some truly inspirational young people.
In addition to this we given a tour the site which provided us with the opportunity to learn a bit more about life at Treloar’s. It is absolutely amazing place with some fantastic facilities for these young people. The staff are fantastic and go to so much effort to provide students all the help and support they need.
Cooking for fussy eaters at home will never cause concern after seeing how hard the kitchen staff work preparing low fat, gluten free, wheat free, high protein etc. We were told how some students have to have pureed food but the kitchen staff make it into the shape of the food item."
A big thank you to Amanda, Kerry and Sandra for helping us out and hosting the games with our students.
