CREST value of Self Management

Last week we held an earthquake drill during morning tea time.  Our teachers have been reminding students about the importance of sheltering in a ‘turtle’ position if they are outside during an earthquake. For the drill we had prepped the students for the sound of an airhorn to signal an earthquake alarm, as we obviously can’t make the ground shake on command.  Staff were very impressed with how well our students all did, and then how calmly they carried out the rest of our evacuation drill, reassembling in their classes on the field.  As parents, you can be super proud of your kids’ self management skills in this area.
