Last week’s relatively strong earthquake during MUN highlighted the need to be vigilant and prepared for all kinds of emergencies. Fortunately, MUN student leaders practiced such a drill as part of their MUN preparation. When the earthquake struck last week, the MUN student leaders sprung into action, gave precise instructions, and kept everyone calm. We are rightfully proud of the mature and responsible way that the student leaders handled this stressful situation.
To ensure the safety of all of our students and staff, AST will conduct an earthquake drill sometime next week (the day and time will not be announced just as real earthquakes strike without warning). The AST Safety Committee prepared a slideshow and video which was presented recently at the all school assembly. Homeroom and advisory teachers are encouraged to review the presentation and practice evacuation and “duck and cover” exercises in their own classrooms before the drill.
Parents, please note: should a school-wide emergency occur, AST will broadcast relevant information through ALMA and LINE. If you do not know how to access ALMA, please contact your child’s homeroom or advisory teacher. If parents have not yet joined AST's official LINE account, please do so immediately. AST's LINE ID is @ast.tw. Please do not wait for a real emergency to happen before checking that you are on AST's line of communication.
