Out & About In The Community
Westlands Dental Studio is pleased to sponsors St Bede’s Catholic School and Sixth Form College!
St Bede’s students model their new football strips for Westlands’ Practice Manager, Sharon Gilderoy. Since receiving the strips, St Bede’s teams have not lost a match.
Working within the local community, in particular with our local schools, is most important to the staff at the Westlands Dental Studio. Last year we sponsored the schools rugby and football teams with new strips. This year we were delighted to award an iPad 2 to Year 12 student Daniel Horsley (pictured left) who has shown outstanding commitment to his studies throughout the year. The iPad 2 was presented by Akash Ghai Principle Dentist at Westlands Dental Studio.
“Our students are delighted with their new strips and even more pleased that they appear to have brought them good luck. We are very grateful to Westlands’ Dentists for their generosity to our school and our PE Department. Students are always proud to wear our school colours and we hope that their performance on the football field will also bring credit to Westlands’ Dental Studio”
Maria Matthews, Headteacher
Every year we work with several local schools in giving their students the opportunity to engage in work experience at Westlands Dental Studio.
Budding dentists and dental nurses gain an insight into the role to help them decide their future career path. For more information on work experience at Westlands Dental Studio contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org detailing dates you require work experience and your school contact details.
Mount Kilimanjaro Charity Trek
Westlands Dental Studio were pleased to sponsor Harjit Ghai on her recent fund raising adventure trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro.
Harjit (pictured to the left, with Varsha Seghal) said the following: “Not being much of a walker, and definitely not a camper, trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, seemed to be a challenge that most of my family and friends never envisaged me accepting! However, the inherent dare devil and thrill seeker (deep inside me) saw an adventure that would push my physical and emotional boundaries, in an attempt to reach the peak of the world’s highest free-standing mountain, and the highest point in Africa. The trek to the summit, 5895m above sea level, was to take six nights and seven days from the western side of the mountain.”
“I feel extremely privileged to have had this truly unforgettable experience, and at the same time raise over £3000 for ‘Vision Africa’ charity. I would like to thank all of my sponsors, especially Westlands Dental Studio for being extremely generous with their sponsorship of my trip, to help make this all possible.”
