My name is Eknoor S. Arora, a student of class 12-A. As you already know I’ve written a book titled ‘The Haunted Park-it is a horror story.
Apart form school studies, I like to utilize my spare time in watching TV shows, reading and writing novels etc. My favorite books are The Harry Potter series, The 39 clues, Percy Jackson and The Song Of Ice And Fire series. I love playing and watching football and I support F.C Barcelona. I love listening to music. My goal is to become an Aerospace Engineer and side-by-side pursue Astrophysics. Writing would be my hobby.
Now, you must be wondering what got me in this ‘writing’ business. When I was in 6th or 7th class, I read a lot of goosebumps novel by R.L Stine. While reading them, I thought of some things that I can add up in those stories myself. That got me thinking. Obviously, I didn’t think of writing a full novel until I was in class 10. And the particular topic- ‘ghosts, demons, horror’ has fascinated and kept me thinking a lot. Are these things real, or just an illusion set in our minds by watching these kinds of stuff? Well, as the saying goes, ‘seeing is believing’ the people who see believe in them and the people who haven’t seen don’t believe.
This book is about a family who have shifted to their new house in Bristol and soon discover that the park which is situated behind their house is an interesting place for rumours-the park is a famous haunted place in their city which contains an evil spirit. I hope everyone of you read my book and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Thank you!

MOCK DRILL IN GDGPS

A mock drill for safe-evacuation of students and staff during any event of fire, earthquake or any other crisis situation, was carried out on 14th July 2015 at 12:10 p.m.  A long bell was sounded to give the indication that the entire school had to be evacuated as soon as possible to prevent any casualty or injuries to students in case of a mishap.

A plan for safe-evacuation  had already been explained to teachers and students prior to the mock drill.  Everyone was aware of the escape routes that were designated class-wise and accordingly, each class used the three routes at the time of drill.  The entire exercise of evacuation took only 3 minutes and the entire school assembled in the open field opposite the swimming pool.

The safe-evacuation routes were marked with arrows to indicate the exits.Every person present in the School (including the security guards) was alert and did not need much time to take instructions.The fire-extinguishers were in place and the fence around the field was quickly opened to enable safe entry of students coming through the bus-yard and Reception area.

 After the Mock drill, the Principal took charge of the situation.  He spoke on fire safety, the importance of fire safety drill and how to handle situation during an emergency, and announced the dispersal plan so that students could go back to their classrooms without wasting time.

The Mock drill was very successful as it gave every student a clear indication of  escape routes and how to safely leave the building without any danger to his or her own life.
