St. Christopher’s School staff members are using their initiative, skills and machinery to support Bahrain medical staff on the frontline in the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Senior School head Nick Wilson, assistant head Bryon Pearce and Design and Technology (DT) head Kim Chadwick have been using the school’s four 3D printers to create face-visors to help protect Bahrain’s medical workers caring for COVID-19 patients.

The first batch was delivered to Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) Hospital and Awali Cardiac Centre yesterday and have been put to use immediately by the medical teams, who have been very impressed with the quality.
