PPE Shortages

Over the last three weeks, The Design Faculty have been responding to the national shortage of PPE equipment for frontline workers during the current pandemic.

We have been laser cutting and creating visors which are currently with NHS and South Lanarkshire Procurement for distribution.

As of today, 1670 visors have been produced and will be distributed to those most in need of protection during this crisis. We will be continuing to work on this project and utilise the donations made over the last week.

If you are able to donate any acrylic (minimum 3mm thickness, other plastics may be suitable) then please contact Miss Kelly via the school office using the link below:


There are many people, companies and small businesses who have assisted us with this project. This has included cutting plastic we were unable to laser cut, collecting plastic from various locations, as well as supplying us with plastic or sourcing us additional materials. Without this assistance we would not be at the total we currently are- so, THANK YOU!!
