Treloar’s 2021 Appeal
Creating a fully accessible Communication and Performing Arts Hall
At Treloar’s, we encourage all students to participate in communication and performing arts activities as they are hugely important to their education, employability, confidence and life skills. Leo, an augmentative alternative communication (AAC) device user was recently involved in a Sixth Form play, he talks about his experience here
“I learned lots of things, like how to programme lines which makes me more independent and how to change my voice and timing. I felt happy to be in the play”.
Sadly our current Florence Treloar Hall lacks the high-tech hardware and software that are required to back up the technologies that students like Leo use. It also makes simple tasks like entering and exiting the performance Hall, getting students on and off the stage, utilising the sound system and controlling the temperature extremely challenging. Unfortunately there are now too many barriers preventing our students from effectively using the Hall. A significant refurbishment would allow us to transform our performance space, allow all of our students to take part in communication activities, music and performing arts, including those who rely on their AAC devices.
The fundraising appeal
We are thrilled to have secured a £100,000 grant from Constable Educational Trust towards the project together with funds from other generous donors. The total cost of the project is £259,000 and we need to raise a further £60,000 in order to complete the appeal and turn the dream of fully accessible performing arts into a reality for our students.
