RIDT - Dental check-up for Level 4 pupils
The University of Malta’s Mobile Dental Unit visited our Level 4s at Chiswick House School. Pupils were given a talk on dental care and also availed themselves of a free dental check-up.
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.
