Aylesbury High School make and donate PPE to Stoke Mandeville Hospital

When staff and pupils at Aylesbury High School heard that the NHS had a shortage of PPE (personal protective equipment) they searched the school from top to bottom to see what they could donate.

Thanks to their Science and Technology departments, they were able to give the Bucks NHS Trust 10 boxes of goggles, gloves and lab coats to help the wonderful people in the NHS carry on with the amazing work they are doing for us all.

AHS Technology teachers Mr Potkin and Mr Cook have also been using the school laser cutter and 3D printer to create face shields.

So far they have made over 200 masks, but the generous parents have donated over £3000 to allow them to purchase more PLA filament, sheets of polypropylene and acetate sheets so they can continue to make more.

These face shields have gone to various destinations, including Stoke Mandeville Hospital, local care homes and the fire service.

Headteacher, Giles Scoble says: "I'd just like to say a huge thank you to our staff and parents for coming together at this time.

"If you are a local organisation in need of masks, please do get in touch on [email protected] so that we can get these to you."
