“Go under the tables”-Taffy, 6, Halswell School

When the Earthquake happened I was at school.I was a little bit scared because it made the room shake. We all went under the tables. The bigs kids who were with us shouted “Go under the tables”. We all went under the tables then, my teacher came. My teacher said “BREATHE IN and OUT 3 times”. Then we all went outside. I was happy to see my Dad when he came to pick me up.

    Hey Taffy

    What a scary day that turned out to be! I am so glad you were able to get under the table and luckily have the big kids with you that could help you all.

    What a good idea of the teacher to make you do the deep breath exercise, that is a good way to calm down.

    When Dad came I bet he was really pleased to see you! Did you have a big hug?

    Look after yourself, we are thinking of you a lot!
