‘My Earthquake Story’- Ashwini, 5, Ilam School

I was at school on the day of the earthquake. We went to a Marae for a field trip and just got back to school on the bus. My mummy was a parent helper but she left. It was lunchtime. I finished eating and was just about to get up to put my lunch box away. Then the earthquake happened! Everything was shaking. I slipped when I got into turtle position. I felt scared. My friends were crying. The teachers brought us to the field. There were more aftershocks. We had to wait for our parents to come. I felt very safe when Mama came.
