“We made a big circle”-Kate, 9, Wairakei School

I was eating my lunch and talking to my friends when the school started shake I was terrified and got down and covered my head. Once it had finished some of my friends were crying we made a big circle to make sure everyone was o.k. When we got home we saw dvd’s on the ground and in my room my duchess were open and my big sisters room was a shambles it had drawers open and some of her ornaments fell down one of them broke but we’re ok.

    Hey Kate

    So pleased to hear you and your friends are ok.

    What you did by covering your head and making the big circle was very sensible and a good way to make yourselves safe.

    I am sure it was a shock to see all the stuff over the floor and will need a lot of clearing up.

    Millions of people all over the world are trying to help right now, complete strangers, people who have been to NZ, some will have been to Canterbury and then there are all the New Zealanders who are raising monies so that we can rebuild and make sure you get all your lovely things back.

    Please send my very best wishes to your family and friends and of course to you!
    From Ella in Auckland.

    What a scary time you have had! I’m so pleased you are ok and it is only ornaments that have been broken. Well done for covering your head quickly to stay safe. I hope you gave all of the teachers and your friends a big hug! Keep safe.
    All my love and thoughts are with everyone at Wairakei.
