‘When the Earth Shook’-Matthew, 9, Clarkville School

Hi I’m Matthew and I’ve got a story to tell you… I was outside on the playground when the earth started shaking. I saw a kid fall off the playground, and I couldn’t see my friends, so I started to panic. I jumped off the net and ran to the field and I found my friends and my sister anna. She’s eleven years old. After that we went back inside the classrooms, and the next one came. I was freaked out, so we went back outside. I was crying and so was my sister. It took two hours for my mum to come. When she got us, we went home. That was an experience!
