    Hi Christopher

    I am so happy your Mummy came to pick you up from school after the earthquake. She would have been very happy to see you, just as much as you I reckon.

    I hope your tummy feels better soon.

    All of us in New Zealand are thinking of you and lots of people outside of the country are too, so please take care and send my very best wishes to your family and friends.

    From Ella in Auckland.

    I can’t believe little kids weren’t that scared. If I was there I would panic. It’s good that people didn’t argue with the rescuers and police because that gave them more time to search for people.


    I was scared when the earthquake happened because my family was in Christchurch and my aunt got lots of cuts and bruises on her face.

    Dear Christopher
    I’m very sorry that this terrible earthquake hit you and your kindergarten and we’re doing a whacky hair day on Friday and we are raising the money for you and I hope that it doesn’t happen to you again. You are very brave and it sounded very scary.
