Pupils from a school in Daventry saw t-shirts they designed for a classroom competition brought to life at the fulfilment centre in the town.

Pupils from across various year groups at Daventry Hill School were challenged to design a t-shirt based on their hobbies or future aspirations. The designs were submitted to the Amazon team at the Daventry fulfilment centre, who chose three winners.

The three winning pupils, along with two school staff members, were invited to the fulfilment centre in Daventry to meet some of the team and watch their designs come to life thanks to the t-shirt printing technology at the site. The winning pupils picked their favourite t-shirt colour and watched on as Rubina Bi, one of the Amazon team who works on the t-shirt printing station, showed how the t-shirts are made.

One of the competition winners was Oliver Hunter, who said: “It was so cool going to Amazon and I loved seeing my t-shirt being made. I can’t wait to wear it and show all my friends!”

Lawrence Watson, Operations Manager at Amazon in Daventry, who was part of the team that picked the winners of the design competition said:

“It was a pleasure welcoming the pupils and staff of Daventry Hill School to our fulfilment centre and learning more about their hobbies and aspirations. We really enjoyed seeing their fantastic t-shirt designs brought to life with our new printing equipment and hope they wear them with fond memories.”

Stacey Drake, Careers and Employability Leader at Daventry Hill School, added: “We really enjoyed our trip to Amazon in Daventry and our pupils found it so fun and educational. I’d like to thank everyone at Amazon for their warm welcome. Our pupils have made memories they will never forget.”

Daventry Hill School is a special free school for pupils aged 4-18 who have a range of cognition and learning needs. Pupils may have additional needs such a physical disability, communication difficulties or autistic conditions.

The school took part in the competition as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities in and around its operating locations throughout the UK.

Amazon is providing students with online STEM courses as well as teaming up with charity partner Magic Breakfast and delivering more than five million healthy breakfasts to families across England.
