Generous Thermometer Donation From The Chan Family

Our continued efforts to keep the College Community safe were given a significant boost this week thanks to the generosity of one of our families.

The Chan family has donated 20 K3 Pro Infrared Thermometers to the College. These automatic, digital thermometers are standalone systems that allow pupils and staff to measure their temperature quickly and accurately.

The top-end thermometers have been placed in each of the Houses, as well as the Lower School, the Main Reception, Dining Room, the Sports Hall and the Medical Centre. The machines are quick and efficient and ensure a safe, contact-free reading. A pupil or member of staff simply stands in front of the machine, which then quickly verifies whether the individual’s temperature is within a normal range.

“A high temperature is regarded as one of the most common symptoms of Covid-19. With over 1,000 pupils at the College, temperature checks at regular intervals throughout the school day would not be possible with manned devices. This generous donation from the Chan family allows for swift and regular temperature checks for staff and pupils, to aid early detection of the virus,” said Mr Paul Williams, Second Master.
