Treloar’s 2019 Appeal
Please help us raise funds to create an amazing new Outdoor Learning space for our students.
We currently have an ageing on-site horticulture facility which has been much loved and well used over the years. However, we are finding now that the complexity of our students has increased so much that the current area is no longer fit for purpose and is without suitable facilities.
We are therefore proposing a new Outdoor Learning Centre (OLC) which will provide access to a more diverse education program and exceptional learning opportunities for our students. The Centre will be specially designed to motivate learning, teach life skills, encourage students to spend more time outdoors to benefit their health and wellbeing and promote a happier and healthier outlook on life.
The new Centre will be managed by a Horticultural & Outdoor Learning Instructor and designed to be fully inclusive for physically disabled children and young people as well as the wider disabled community. Learning opportunities will be focused around horticulture, animal husbandry, sensory exploration, science activities and areas for socialising. There will be both a therapeutic and educational aspect to the Centre and a focus on opportunities for real life work experience through enterprise activities such as gardening, growing, selling produce, animal care and general upkeep.
