GIIS Tokyo Kindergarten Prepares for Emergencies with Intruder Drill

On February 14th, 2024, our SSD campus at GIIS Tokyo took a proactive step toward ensuring the safety of our students and staff. We conducted an intruder/suspicious person's drill, designed to equip our community with the skills and readiness needed to respond effectively to emergencies.

During the drill, a local police officer, acting as a trainer, arrived at our campus dressed in clothing typical of a suspicious person. Carrying a cardboard knife, the "intruder" simulated an attack on the premises. This realistic scenario allowed us to put our emergency response protocols into action.

Our teachers, who had undergone thorough training, demonstrated remarkable composure and efficiency. Using specialized equipment called Sasumata, they swiftly immobilized the intruder's arms and legs, ensuring the safety of everyone present. Meanwhile, other teachers guided students to safety, relayed information, and contacted the authorities without hesitation.

The drill was conducted with intensity and realism, providing valuable hands-on experience for all participants. Following the exercise, the police officer addressed the group, stressing the importance of preparedness and vigilance in emergency situations. This reinforced the lessons learned and underscored the need for a proactive approach to campus safety.

Afterward, our teachers engaged in a comprehensive debriefing session, where safety measures and protocols were reviewed and reinforced. This ensured that everyone understood their roles and responsibilities in maintaining a secure learning environment.

At GIIS Tokyo, the safety and well-being of our students and staff are paramount. By conducting drills like these, we are committed to staying vigilant and prepared for any situation that may arise.
