We had a very small, brave turnout at school today with lots of people choosing to stay home with families after last night's earthquake.
We practised our earthquake drills and how to evacuate to our safe place on the field.
Little did we know that we would have to do the real thing in the afternoon!
We are so proud of the tamariki and how they reacted to the 6.3 earthquake that hit our school today at 1.34pm.
When alerted to the earthquake they protected themselves with the best turtles that we have ever seen. They stayed in their turtle positions until given the all clear then sensibly walked out together to the field.
|We are in the safest position when we pretend to be turtles. We make sure to cover our heads with our hands|
We are all safe and so proud of ourselves for doing the right thing in an emergency! Kia manawanui whanau. Hang in there. :)
