Members of the Design Technology department of Ryde School are in school during lockdown as part of the team looking after children of key workers during the Coronavirus crisis.

Whilst they are there, they’re putting their skills and the 3D printers and other equipment to good use and making face masks for the local NHS and care homes.

The first deliveries were to Tower House Surgery and Newport Residential Care home.

The Head Master and Bursar have been in touch with other aid associations on the Island to see what else will be of help at this time.

Head of DT, Mr JB Savage, said,

“Whilst we are here in school for our key worker children it makes sense to be able to put to good use the school equipment and resources to help as much as we can during this time and help protect key workers.”

Seems that they are not the only ones. Ivan Kirk from Cowes Enterprise College had also been busy according to Isle of Wight Radio: https://iwradio.co.uk/2020/04/21/class-cowes-teacher-making-visors-for-isle-of-wight-community/
I think it’s brilliant when school facilities are used to help the community in this crisis!
