A Weston school Principal and head of DT have made 50 face masks for use by an NHS doctors’ surgery
Priory Community School Academy Principal Angelos Markoutsas and Head of DT David Clay spent four hours answering the call of Highbridge Medical Centre who were eager for the supplies.
They both cut the visors to shape and used their school equipment to finish them off before delivering to the surgery.
It came two days after they and WCSA delivered hundreds of boxes of goggles to Weston General Hospital and care homes. TKASA took theirs to a Taunton hospital.
All three schools are part of The Priory Learning Trust.
Angelos said: “We were asked by the local surgery if we could help out. We were delighted to assist and so we made 50 and would be happy to make more.
“Our school is at the centre of the community and this is the very least we can do to help our wonderful NHS.”
Neville Coles Executive Principal of TPLT said: ”This is simply wonderful thinking by David and Angelos. Amid all the chaos at this current time I want to say publicly how lucky we are to have such dedicated people in all our schools and academies across the region – all staff working now in our schools are stars and working their socks off to support our NHS and keep some semblance of normality.”
