“I was scared”-Elijah, 5, Wairakei School

I feel sad when earthquakes hit the ground. I was scared. And everyone was screaming and everyone was crying. When the earthquake happened I was with my friends on the monkey bars. When we was kicking the ball it shook the whole ground. Do you want to know my friends’ names? Their names are Kody, Connor, Myles and Bailey. Bailey was upset. These were the people who were with me. I was happy when my Dad came to pick me up from school, then we went home. There were lots of cars stuck in traffic outside our house. Mum came home from the Art Centre with my baby brother Jonah and my aunty Sacha and cousin Noah. Then my cousins, aunty and Grandad and uncles came over to stay because their house was damaged.
