Disaster Drill

9/15/2017

In order to be prepared in any situation, we performed a disaster drill with students.

 

Some important words: 危ない!(Abunai! Danger!)   逃げろ!(Nigero! Run!) and 助けて!(Tasukete! Help!)

All students reached the designated meeting spot.

This weekend, a typhoon is in the forecast. Stay safe everyone!
