Students and teachers have put their technological talents to good use by making visors which could help protect those on the frontline against coronavirus.
Sutton Valence School near Maidstone may now be closed due to the virus, but its 3D printer has been put to work to produce the protective equipment which will be given to local doctors to wear as an additional precaution against the disease.
The decision to begin producing the masks came about after a Sevenoaks doctor contacted the school to ask for help after learning that they had the kit which could be used to print the safety wear.
So far the school has managed to produce equipment for five GP surgeries and an special educational needs school.
Bruce Grindlay, headmaster at Sutton Valence School, said: "Pairing up with Tonbridge School, our design and technology teachers are pulling their resources together and utilising the equipment we have available in our school to print these essential visors for our frontline workers.
"With constant exposure to the coronavirus, they are taking the biggest risk to protect our country and they are doing all they can to keep as many people as possible safe at this time. We are extremely proud that we can offer our services and help the community, at this key stage of trying to stop this virus in its tracks."
Production of the visors is not the only initiative the school has launched in an effort to contribute the community response to the pandemic.
The school has also delivered postcards to neighbours with an offer of support to those who may need it. A number of staff members who live on or around the site have offered to help those who are most in need during the outbreak.
