Norwich School teachers have started making PPE for the NHS and key personnel

A school’s art and design teachers produced hundreds of protective visors for healthcare professionals.

Norwich School staff made over 500 facial shields following “numerous requests from the local community”.

The school said the visors were donated to hospitals, a medical intervention and a hospice.

Principal Steffan Griffiths said: “It is important that everyone does their part to help the community respond to the coronavirus outbreak.”

Unused supplies from the art and design department were used to make the masks and they also donated glasses and glove boxes.

The need for personal protective equipment (PPE) has increased in light of the coronavirus pandemic, during which 2,921 people died with the disease in UK hospitals.

About 300 of the teachers’ facial screens have been distributed so far and the school hopes to make over 250 of them per day using its laser cutter.

Griffiths added: “I am grateful to my colleagues for dedicating their time and using their skills to create equipment that allows health workers to assist those in need.”
