Running to our “safe place” meeting point after escaping the dormitory during our fire drill.
Discussing the drill with the girls afterwards.
Giving feedback to the girls after they were all counted at the “safe place.”
Now, last time, from the beginning! The girls would go pretend to be asleep in the dormitory and the house mother would wake them with a whistle and flashlight to start the drill.
After a day full of running and squeezing through windows, the kids deserved some Kenyan style Kool-Aid (“quencher”) and biscuits.
Nina Special School for the Deaf! Congratulations on your first (of many) fire drill!
