Teachers are doing their bit for the NHS at Central Foundation Girls’ secondary school Bow during the lockdown while pupils are having to stay at home.
The school’s art and design team is making personal protective equipment such as visors and masks for frontline workers.
The team began production with 75 visors and 50 fabric masks in just one day of the summer term and managed to complete 200 in three days.
“We can do our bit to support nurses and other frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic,” headteacher Esther Holland said.
“Our arts team has put its resources to good use while the school remains closed, to help make a difference to NHS staff.”
