ShakeOut Time: Drop, Cover and Hold on!

What's new at SD40?

October 18 - This Thursday, New Westminster School students will practice how to "DROP, COVER AND HOLD ON" during the 2016 Great British Columbia ShakeOut earthquake drills event, taking place October 20 at 10:20 a.m.  New Westminster Schools supports participation in the annual exercise as a way to practice what to do in the event of an earthquake. The event encourages everyone - from schools, families, and the community at large  - to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes, wherever we live, work, or travel.
