Treloar’s Team Ambassadors
Treloar’s continually searches for opportunities for students to feel more connected to and involved in the community around them. The use of Teams encourages positive relationships between students of all ages and fosters a friendly, competitive spirit. Teams are organised by class groups to further develop a sense of belonging and comradery.
The School community is separated into four teams. Teams were relaunched in September 2021 when the students chose Fire, Earth, Water and Air as their Team names. It became clear from voting slips that many students felt inspired by athletes, actors and musicians. Treloar School is passionate about providing students with opportunities to identify and relate to aspirational people to focus their own ambition for success. To further promote this, each team will have an ambassador picked for their relevance, visibility and achievement. During the last school year, we were extremely lucky to have Suzanna Hext, Martin Sinclair, Ali Smith and David Smith as our Team Ambassadors.
We’re delighted to report that despite their busy schedules, they have all kindly agreed to continue with their roles this year. They will work with the students to inspire and motivate them to get involved in sports.
How does it all work?
Team points are collected following the School’s merit system. Students are awarded merit points to celebrate their own personal and individual achievements; these points are recorded and are also assigned an equal number of Team points: 1 Merit point = 1 Team point.
Students can be awarded within a session either 1 or 2 merit points. For moments that are extraordinary, a postcard home is written by staff and 5 merit points (5 Team points) are awarded. Assemblies and a visual Team counter display will offer concrete opportunities to develop students understanding of both competition and scoring.
Thank you to our Ambassadors – it really means a lot to Treloar’s students!
