School moves into mask market by designing, printing, and donating ‘ear savers’ to health workers – ABC News

A group of students at Girton Grammar School, who have parents that work in healthcare, came up with the idea during a class on empathy and emotional intelligence.

The school’s head of technology and academic services, Rod Smith, said the project began during the first stage 3 lockdown while students were learning from home.

“We asked students to put themselves in someone else’s shoes, thinking about our frontline workers and the issues they’re facing at the moment,” Mr Smith said.

“We donated those to the parent of one of the students at Bendigo Health who works in the ICU and apparently they were snapped up in 10 minutes.”
