A surprise earthquake drill was done at the University of the Philippines Integrated School (UPIS) last October 25.

The drill was signalled by a long bell notifying the students to duck, cover, and hold. After the bell, students went to the designated evacuation sites, the UPIS 7-12 Driveway for those in Grades 7-12 and the area in front of the Sampaguita Residence for K-2 and 3-6.

The drill was unannounced to see how ready UPIS students are for an occurrence of an earthquake.

Prof. Paul Mabaquiao, head of the Health and Physical Education Department, said that the performance of the students was better compared to the previous drill. //by Alex Yangco
