…and have nothing to do with the carpet tiles – we haven’t had any new carpets fitted since 2007.

“On Friday as lunch was being prepared the fire alarm began to sound.

“The whole school followed evacuation procedures and left the building quickly and safely.

“During the afternoon children with wet socks or tights were given spare dry ones and theirs were dried.”

    “In the classroom, Japanese students are required to take off the shoes they wear outdoors and put on their uwabaki, a kind of soft slipper meant to be used only indoors.”

    Not a bad idea, this.

      As was the case in my Yorkshire senior school in the 60’s, apparently to protect the polished wooden parquet flooring. Everyone complied, it was a non-event, just our version of normal.

      Yes (If they have separate, named storage for their slippers, as otherwise foot infections will spread easily.)

      I always slip on my uwabakis at home before indulging in wakibaki.
