(22nd – 24th) November 2011 – Emergency Evacuation Drill
Safety is the prerogative of any institution. Whether one works in a business, a school, a hospital or any other place, one needs to be prepared in case of an emergency. Fires and other hazards often require evacuation and conducting an evacuation can be a logistical nightmare. Keeping this in mind a ‘Disaster Management Workshop’ was organized for the students of Classes IX and X in which they were trained how to safeguard themselves and others during disasters like earthquake, fire, etc. A team comprising of five officials from Civil Defence, Ministry of Home Affairs conducted a Disaster Awareness Programme in the school. The team was headed by Mr. Amit Kumar, Instructor, Civil Defence. The entire programme continued for three days. This programmer covered the following aspects :
- Disaster Awareness
- Fire Fighting
- First Aid
- Emergency Rescue and Search
The team of civil defence officials spoke about disasters and their management, showed movies and demonstrations. Practicals were also done by the students.
A mock fire evacuation drill was conducted at the end of the informative sessions. Students of Classes IX - X were trained to conduct this drill which consisted of evacuating the school. The alarm bell rang and it was a signal for students and staff as they came out of the building in an organized manner. They took different preplanned routes so as to avoid any chaos. Everyone moved out of the school building safely and assembled in the school grounds.
A students’ rescue team was formed. They carried out the ‘Demo’ collectively performing the duties and responsibilities assigned to them successfully. A check was conducted by School Disaster Management Team and student in- charges to ensure that no one was left behind. Some students stayed back in the school building as injured victims and were evacuated by rescue team on make-shift stretchers. Students used fire extinguishers to douse small fires.
A Disaster Management team has been formed in the school based on the guidelines and training session taken by the Civil Defence Officials. Duties and responsibilities of each official in the school disaster management team have been duly defined to carry out the exercise in emergency situation due to fire, earthquake etc.
This drill conducted by school with the Civil Defence Personnels provided great learning experience to students and staff and equipped them for any future disasters. We at SGS believe in preparing our students for all types of situations. With the confidence generated among the SGS community after this training, more such mock drills will be organized in school at regular intervals to raise the preparedness for any disaster!
19th November 2011 - Workshop on Multiple Intelligence
Teachers of SGS got an opportunity to attend an educative workshop on MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES organized by Orient Blackswan at S D Public School, Patel Nagar.
The first part of the workshop was devoted to enhancing communication skills of students. For this, they presented a series of books and support material from Buzzword.
The latter part focused on the concept of Multiple Intelligences. This session was conducted by Dr. Maria Athaide a renowned consultant in Educational Technology and Design at Ajim Premji Foundation, Bengaluru.
The workshop summarized the 9 different types of Intelligences and was explained through exercises and fun activities.
After attending the workshop we came to the conclusion that intelligence doesn’t only mean being academically sound, but is found in each person as different intellects. Improving education by identifying the multiple intelligences and thus providing guidance to students will definitely lead to improved performances!
The workshop was very educative, and truly a refreshing one.
