Colleen, the Head of Boarding, was concerned that the rain would disrupt the planned fire drill.  But then, as she explained to me, “If there was a fire, or a bomb, it would not wait for sunny weather.”  So we went ahead.

After an impressively thorough briefing by Dayle, chief fire marshal, to the entire boarding school, teachers and learners alike, followed by the dramatic demonstration of a fire extinguisher in action, we all returned to our respective rooms, to await…

…the alarm, which was suitably ear-piercing and unignorable.  And the rain held off, more or less.  Result!
