Treloar’s celebrates Burns Night

We loved getting stuck in to Burns Night celebrations this week!
Who is Robert Burns?
Burns Night is celebrated each year on 25 January to mark the legacy of famous Scottish poet Robert Burns.
Did you know Burns Night dinners have been held every year since 1801? His work is so extraordinarily famous that after Queen Victoria and Christopher Columbus, Burns has more statues dedicated to him around the world than any other non-religious figure!
So why do we celebrate here in Hampshire?
We want to ensure our students, who come from across the UK and internationally have a varied and broad enrichment programme and curriculum. Learning about historic and cultural figures from across the globe widens the experience of young people at Treloar’s.
We are committed to inclusivity at Treloar’s and we believe that deepening their understanding of diverse views, cultures and the richness of the world is vital for shaping them for our global world. It is also a big part of preparing them for life beyond Treloar’s.
In our Primary class, they had a whole host of activities to enjoy. They had a go at ceilidh wheelchair dancing, made neeps and tatties, read a shared poem using their communication devices, iced shortbread and explored traditional Scottish items on their sensory trays.
It was a fantastic day organised by our expert Primary teachers and Student Support Assistants. They go above and beyond to enrich the timetable and experiences of our students – we’re super proud of them!
