Drop, cover and hold!

Wow what an adventure we had today!!! We watched the turtle safe video, then we had an earthquake drill where we practiced Drop, Cover and Hold. We waited for the all clear and then evacuated the centre for a lovely walk down to the evacuation mound. The tamariki were amazing and really made the teachers proud. Once we arrived we had morning tea and a drink, it was thirsty work!! We then had lots of fun rolling down the hill, even the teachers joined in!! On our way back we stopped at the playground for a play. All in all it was a wonderful excursion where the tamariki had opportunities to learn how to act if and when a real earthquake and tsunami do occur. Such an important lesson living so close to the beach!
