Run, Jump, Throw.

The past 6 weeks, we had run jump throw with coach Declan. He is a coach from a company called “Kelly Sports.” The first two weeks, we had to learn how to get ready when you are participating in a race and how to run. The week after we had practiced how to run, we had to learn how to jump. In the last two weeks we learnt how to throw. These were my favourite sessions because there was a game called “Knock Down The Wicket.” The team that had most points, they got 10 minutes of play time on their Chromebooks. Three teams won, including my team. It was fun but the fun was over. I hope we do it again next year.

Watch Out!!!

The earthquake hit the north of Christchurch near Hanmer Springs at 12:02 in the morning. The earthquake struck 16m deep. It was then followed by more than a dozen aftershocks across the country including two 6.2 magnitude quakes near Kaikoura.

A tsunami warning has been issued to a number of areas around New Zealand. This includes all of the East Coast of New Zealand, both in the North Island and the South.  A 2m tsunami has hit Kaikoura.

Earthquake Advice: If you are in a house and a earthquake is going, please do not go outside sightseeing. Stay inside and remember to DROP, COVER and HOLD.

Tsunami Advice: If you are on a beach and the you see the sea getting sucked in, and you see the sea level getting higher, get to higher ground quickly.
