There was a fire alarm this afternoon. The whole building was evacuated. We were told that there was no fire – but the fire department had to turn the fire alarm off. We left the building – and remembered to pick up the register!
There was a slight drizzle and a little sharp wind. Swimmers were in their costumes, gym stars in their brief outfits, football players in short sleeves and dancers in little costumes. Some of our pupils picked up their outside wear but others were in their school clothes.
We were allowed back in again after around twenty minutes. The children seemed to go in first.
What would happen if there was a fire alarm at a school while the children were sitting the eleven plus? What would be the impact on the children?
