Dealing With Radiation Mess



Parents ( mostly Moms ) had a couple of PTA meetings at school of Haruka in kindergarten about dealing with radiation mess of the nuclear plant in Fukushima. Parents were concerned of the kids condition bout the safety limit of exposure ( the school authority limits 30 minutes of letting the kids play outdoor ) and most request from the parents were to remove topsoil from the playground of the school because the soil was exposed to radiation leaks...


Last Sunday, March 22, 2011, the school granted the request with the cooperation of the teachers, staff and parents by digging up the topsoil from the playground ( although the tests showed that the radiation level were low ) so that kids at school can resume playing outdoor activities. The digging started at 8:30 in the morning and wasn't expecting many volunteers to come but was surprised that most of the parents were present.


Sunday, 8:30 A.M. radiation measurement at the schools playground: Before⇒0.55μSv/h
radiation measurement at the schools playground:
After ⇒0.13μSv/h

The sand box at school was covered by a blue sheet~ it wasn't used since the class resumed

The School Director thanking everyone for the cooperation and for a job well done.


The amount of radiation dose on the surface has dropped and we are hoping that the troubled nuclear plant would remain stable soon.

Fingers crossed! I hope it all goes well.
It was so sweet of the parents to come help :) I doubt anyone would help here in Slovakia, 'cause Slovaks are...well, lets say lazy, even though some are even worser than that.

Nakakainspire ang tulungan system ng Japanese ano Clang, very supportive talaga kayo with each other. Sana nga wala ng maapektuhan ng radiation..

Okay try ulit ako hehehe.. I was trying to leave a comment kanina ayaw eh.

Anyhow, nakakainspire ang tulungan system dyan sa Japan, they really do support and help each other! Bihira na yan ngayon. Still praying na sana the radiation problem will be over soon.

praying that any long term effects of the radiation wouldn't even manifest,
japanese people comes a long way when it comes to helping each other and their compassion on other nations, as well.

Nakakabilib naman talaga ang mga Japanese. In no time I am sure you all will bounce back like nothing happened at all.

Thank you for the visit and the comment at my Nostalgia entry, Clang. Truly appreciate it.

See you around.

Hugs!
