We were delighted to offer support to North Durham Academy, by donating materials to its Design and Technology Department.

12th April 2021

Based in Stanley, the school approached us to see if we could provide any materials which would help its students with their projects. The school explained that due to covid restrictions and cuts it was experiencing difficulties in obtaining basic modelling supplies.

Our team donated a range of materials including cardboard, cut offs of corrugated boxes and sample boxes.

Adam Taylor, Managing Director at Taylor Packaging, said: “The past 12 months has been extremely challenging for schools and when we heard about the issues North Durham Academy was experiencing in obtaining materials for its students’ modelling projects we wanted to help.

“As a family-run business which has been headquartered in Durham for over 40 years, we are committed to serving the North East region and we are proud to have a local workforce. We are therefore delighted to have been able to support a school within our community.”

Amanda Waltenberg, Technology Teacher at North Durham Academy, commented: “We are already making great use of the corrugated card that Taylor Packaging kindly donated. It is currently being used by our year 11 GCSE Design and Technology students to create working models of their final design woodwork projects. The Art Department has also made good use of some of the card to create 3D sculptures and textured inlays within their GCSE coursework.

“It has proved to be an excellent modelling material where students can really understand how 3 dimensional products works and are constructed.”
