A Big Earthquake!-Celia, 8, Harewood School

On Tuesday 22nd of February 2011, the 6.3 earthquake hit.  I was very scared it was a very frightening experience at school.
The teachers were comforting the school students and that made me feel safe and not scared anymore.  I am so
glad my friends, teachers and family are all safe.

    Hi Celia

    I have to say I agree with you that you are glad all you friends, teachers and family are all safe.

    It was a big earthquake and a lot of people were quite scared, under those circumstances that is not surprising.

    You have lovely teachers that were able to comfort you and make you feel safe and I am sure you were pleased to get to see your family again very quickly.

    Take care of yourself Celia, there are many prayers and thoughts for you all, I am thinking of you too.

    Celia – wow you should be proud of yourself and all your teachers and school. They certainly kept you very safe and you did all the right things. I think you would have been pleased to see Mum or Dad. Well done
