Spent an entertaining afternoon at Rangikura School. They've just completed their classes on emergency preparedness, and spent the whole day outside, making emergency shelters, living off bottled water and cold tinned food, practicing first aid and making improvised stretchers. Some of the shelters were better than others, some were really quite impressive and stood up well to today's winds and even some rain, some less so - but it was a great test of the kids' common sense and practicality. Well done! Awesome bunch of kids. We'll definitely be back when they do it again next year.
