Technology Team produces face-shields for local healthcare workers

The Technology Team at Villiers School have started to produce protective face-shields for local healthcare workers using the school’s laser cutter and supported by funding from the Parent Teacher Association.

Using an approved template, Technology teachers Mr. Jones and Mr. Browne, began production last Friday and the first batch of visors were distributed to local nursing homes later that evening. The pair documented their progress via Twitter and since then, have been inundated with requests for the PPE product.

The school’s Technology laboratory has been converted to a temporary production assembly line and materials have been delivered from Miko metals in Cork as well as being sourced from local suppliers. The team print the shape of visors using the laser printer and then cut, assemble and clean the product before making it ready for distribution.

COVID-19 Open Letter - Head Boy and Head Girl

Amy and Adam, our Head Boy and Head Girl, took time out from their Leaving Cert and International Baccalaureate studies to write an open letter to students to emphasise all that they feel is important right now, social distancing, staying safe and staying connected with family and friends. Their gesture of leadership and support during these unprecedented times of uncertainty is exemplary.
