Evacuation Drills

A mock evacuation drill (fire drill) was practised in school on February 5, 2020. The entire drill was done twice, once at 10.15 a.m. during the Morning session and again at 1.40 p.m. during the Afternoon session. On the ringing of the fire alarm, the Principal, Ms D. K. Chadda, announced over the PA system that it was an emergency and that everyone needed to evacuate. The hooter was sounded and students, as well as, members of staff vacated the school building. In the morning the evacuation took 8 minutes, 54 seconds while in the afternoon it took 8 minutes, 25 seconds. Members of the Emergency Response Team helped in the evacuation. The teachers carried attendance registers with them and a roll-call of students was taken after the evacuation. Attendance of staff members was also checked. Ms D. K. Chadda addressed everyone explaining what the drill was about.

Another mock drill on bomb threat was held on February 8, 2020 at 11.00 a.m. Students attending the Saturday Activity classes and Abacus classes along with their teachers, staff members and all other present in the premises assembled in the courtyard (Assembly Area 1) as supposedly the bomb was in the backyard (Assembly Area 2). All rules related to this drill were followed. The time taken for the drill was 2 minutes, 58 seconds
