The First Fire Drill of this school year was conducted on 5th December 2017. When the fire alarm was raised during the third period of the school day, all students and teachers exited their classrooms as quickly as they could and assembled in the playground. Teachers and monitors took row calls while our vice-principal counted the number of staff. The whole process took around 8 minutes and 15 seconds longer than the previous fire drill. The teacher-in-charge, Mr. Cheung, appreciated the cooperation of students, teachers, and staff and expressed his hope that next time the assembly could be even faster. Even though it is only a drill, everybody should take it seriously as it is a matter of life and death. When a real fire occurs, nobody wants to witness any casualties.
