‘Earthquake in Christchurch!’- Grace, 8, Queenspark School

On Saturday at 4:30 in the morning, Christchurch started to shake.  My bed was going side to side.  Zebastian started crying.  Me and Benjamin stayed in bed, very frightened.  Our dad came in and told us to hide under the table.  We didn’t have a torch so we had to get candles.  Me and Benjamin stayed under the tables for five minutes because we couldn’t find a candle.  Mum found a candle so we all went in the cosy lounge.  We stayed in the lounge for a little  while.  Then all of us went in to mums bed.  In the morning, my brother cleaned up the broken glass.  Then we all went out to look at the roads. The end.
