CHS "Wear A Hat Day"

We had a very exciting day at Chiswick House School yesterday as we celebrated ‘Wear a hat day’ during our second Dress Down Day this scholastic year. This international event takes place in March, Brain Tumour Awareness Month and coincides with the International Brain Awareness Week. We encouraged our pupils to participate and the results were AMAZING! Pupils put in so much effort and came up with the most creative hats.
Every year, Chiswick House School and St Martin’s College select a charity to support. This year we have chosen to support RIDT the University of Malta’s Trust set up to collect funds for research. The RIDT was established by the Government of Malta in 2011 as an integral component of Malta’s established policy to bolster investment in research and development on a national level. Since its inception, the RIDT has managed to engage with various sectors of the Maltese society and to raise the much-needed awareness about the benefits of university research and the need to support it. This engagement has led to various projects being implemented, including PhD scholarships in cancer research, climate change and ALS research, a kidney research programme, research projects in engineering, a fully-fledged mobile dental clinic, and a research programme in the genetics of osteoporosis and one focusing on eye disease.
The funds collected during Dress Down Day will be donated to the RIDT.
