WATCH: Primary school in Cape Town installs DIY screens on pupils' desks to prevent exposure to the coronavirus

A primary school in Cape Town has installed DIY screens on pupils’ desks to prevent exposure to the coronavirus.

The Dr. GJ Joubert Primary School came up with this ideas to increase protection against the virus as schools resumed early June.

An Educator at the school, Angus Hartley told the AFP that the classrooms at the school are very small, which makes social distancing a challenge.

“How are we going to keep the kids safe and the teachers. and then we came up with a solution. I came up with this thought and said, look I’ve got a lot of planks at home, I will make you frames for the classes. so we used wood that we picked up, the plastic we had from one of our teachers”, he said.

Martin Leukes, principal of school commended his staff for innovative thought.

“We had to think out of the box, especially because of the reason that we do not have much money. And I’m very proud of them because why, they thought about this thing to do and this shields will keep the children safe, will keep the teachers safe and it is cost effective,” he said .
