School bus evacuation drill for teachers and staff

Instructors from Clover Kanko, the company which operates our school buses, recently came to the kindergarten to conduct a school bus evacuation drill for all the teachers and staff. The drill featured simulations of emergency situations, such as the occurrence of an accident while children are on the school bus, as well as hands-on training and a workshop.
Participants first learned how to secure evacuation routes on both large-sized and mid-sized buses. They then took part in a workshop to learn about the procedure for contacting authorities when an accident occurs and how to safely evacuate the children.
The participants engaged in lively discussion throughout the drill, with everyone agreeing that the highest priority was the children’s safety. The kindergarten plans to hold a winter traffic safety class with all the children on December 11 as part of our efforts to protect students from traffic accidents.
