School Closed because of Earthquake

Our lovely school is once again closed because of the Earthquake that struck our city at 12.51 on Tuesday the 22 February. The children were mostly out playing in the playground at the time and all did exactly what they have been taught... assuming the turtle position.  
They then all stayed in the playground in their classroom groups until they were collected by their parents. They were all wonderful and very brave during this time despite the huge aftershocks. 
Our school is OK. We just have a lot of tidying up to do, and some of our computers may be damaged beyond repair, but we are all OK which is the important thing. 

We are thinking of all the people of our city  at this time.

Welcome Back

Danny and William show Sheena where they lived in China.
We are now into our second week of school for 2011.  We would all like to welcome back to Addington Danny and William who have been living in China.  We are looking forward to finding out lots about life in China.
