‘My story’-Grace, 7, Oaklands Primary School

I was in the hall also doing kapahaka when the earthquake struck. I felt brave and knew what to do after what happened in Sept. My Nonni picked me up and when we got home we saw mummy, she grabbed us and held us and cried. I was sad. We sat by the door incase we had to run out. My little brother was scared and cried each time we had an aftershock. Each time we feel one, we do the raspberry at it. Its funny coz it sounds like the ground is farting!!!.

    Your teachers were all proud of how brave you were during the earthquake and aftershocks. What a scary time for you all. I know you are back at school soon, I imagine it will be good to see all of your friends – and continue with your Kapahaka too.
    Wishing you and your family all the best.

    Hi Grace

    Well that was a kapahaka you won’t forget!

    You are clearly a brave and organised person, the sort of person who will become a good leader I think.

    How lovely for your Nonni to pick you up and then to be hugged by Mummy, she cried because she loves you so much and would have been so happy to see you again.

    Well done to do the raspberry with your brother at the ground, that would have kept you laughing.

    Take care of yourself and your family.
    From Ella in Auckland.
