The great New Zealand ShakeOut in the library

On Tuesday this week New Zealand held a national event called The Great New Zealand ShakeOut to educate the population about what to do in an earthquake.  At 9.26am Year 13 Media Studies were in the library completing assignments and on the ringing of the bell everyone dived under the tables and benches joining in with the 1.3 million New Zealanders who took part.  Although it was a light hearted moment it was also a serious thing.  We thought about Christchurch and the tragedy of the earthquake there and also knew that in our country 'the shakey isles' that the threat of an earthquake is never far away. 

Pictured below are Anthony and Lee participating by diving under the benches in the library.
