100 pairs of safety goggles donated
Last week, The Hayesbrook School delivered 100 pairs of lab safety googles to Pembury Hospital, sourced from the academy’s science department. Science teachers pulled their stock in response to the appeal from the NHS to schools and local businesses to donate stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep staff safe while working on the frontline.
Mr Daniel Hatley, Executive Principal of The Hayesbrook School said: “We’re delighted to be able to help the NHS at a time when we all need to pull together. Staff at the academy were very supportive, people are only too happy to help, it’s only a small donation in the grand scheme of things.
“The goggles where currently not being used and it doesn’t make sense if equipment is here lying idle, when it’s very much in need elsewhere. I think everybody knows someone who is currently working on the frontline, continuing to provide above-and-beyond care no matter what within our community. So we’re pleased to be able to donate this essential kit to support our key workers.”
The Hayesbrook School continues to support their families, by providing school provision for students whose parents/carers are key workers.
