Earthquake warning: Toddlers sitting outside pre-school cause panic

KARACHI, Sep 14: An earthquake warning was issued early Thursday morning in some schools as a result of which pre-school children aged between two and three were found sitting on the road in DHA Phase VIII outside a certain school.

This caused concerned parents to go to other schools to collect their children in senior classes as well. "There was a rush of parents around 9:30 a.m. as they had come to take their children back," said a representative teacher from Education Bay. "After inquiring we found out about the situation outside [...] and we assured the concerned parents that their children would be safe."

Other schools in the area also received calls and visits from parents worried about the earthquake warning. Parents approached were furious with the organizational skills of the school in question and felt that making young children sit on the road was irresponsible.

"Most of them are younger than three years old and can hardly find their way to the bathroom in time. How do they expect to keep them in control if an earthquake hits, especially sitting out on the road?" said Mariam, a very angry mother of two, who had gone to drop her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter to the school at 9:00 a.m. Mariam then called her two sisters, whose children are students at a neighbouring school, and they went to collect them.

Other schools around Phase VIII said, however, that the day went by normally. "We even had a bake sale planned for Thursday, for the seniors to raise money for their prom and everything went according to schedule," said Aliya, a teacher at Bay View Academy. Daily Times
