‘Terrifying Day’-Sheri, 7, Sumner School

I was at school and showing the duty teacher my lunch box when arrrgh an aftershock happenend.  Then everybody ran straight onto the field.  My babysitter lived across the road and she came before my mum.  When my mum showed up I felt much better.  Then we went up on a hill.  My neighbours children were with my mum and we sat down for a little bit and then we went down to the deaf school where everyone from my school went.

    Kia ora Sheri

    You were busy on the day of the earthquake, with showing the teacher your lunch box and then running across a field and then up the hill before going to a different school!

    I expect you were very tired after all that. I hope you are feeling better now and more settled.

    It has been a very hard time there on lots of people, whether old or young. And those of us far away have wanted to help.

    Some people have been raising money by baking or selling things, even the Prime Minister played cricket in Wellington with lots of famous people so they could raise lots and lots of money.

    I do want you to remember that we are all thinking of you lots.
    From Ella in Auckland.
