Earthquake Drill

Our school observed the earthquake drill on this day to mark the anniversary of the overwhelming Kangra earthquake in 1905 and preparing ourselves from the disaster. The member of the disaster management awareness team of our school broadened our minds by sharing some facts and figures on earthquake and stressed on the importance of following the three steps Drop, Cover & hold. There was short skit on what to do and what not to do during the earthquake by the class IX ‘S’ under the supervision of Mrs. Karma Yangkyi.

The mock drill was carried at 11:00 am in the morning with the sound of drum at the academic block. After one minute every one evacuated the building to the safety. The football ground was the place where the head counting was done. As instructed, everyone followed the drill sincerely. This mock drill was carried to warn the uncertainty of the natural disaster and to be prepared by acquiring some basic safety ideas/ measures.
