Christchurch Earthquake

Welcome to our blog site where students at the Royal Children's Hospital can follow our project. Our aim is to gain an understanding of the Christchurch earthquake and how it has affected the young people of Christchurch. Our hope is to fundraise money through our projects that will benefit those affected.

What will we do with the money??

As our fundraising is in full swing we thought it was time to ask for suggestions as to what we should put the money towards.   We are almost 1/2 way to our target of $1000 and we hope to reach it  in the next few months.  We will be asking students in Room 7 at Chisnallwood Intermediate to tell us what they would like, however it would be great if we could offer some suggestions. It is our hope that the money goes towards improving the wellbeing of these students who have been through so much this  year. 
Things to remember are:
  • Students are between 11-13 years of age
  • There are approx 750 students
  • Grass areas and fields may be closed due to the water damage  & liqufaction
Post your ideas and we will run a poll to vote in the next few weeks.



  1. I think a big bbq lunch with drinks and entertainment

  2. What about getting a band to play?

  3. I know the school has a big day out events where the kids get to go the pools or somewhere at the end of the year. Maybe each class could get some extra cash to pay for this?

  4. What about an excursion to the pools or somewhere fun?

  5. What about a carnival with rides or food stalls for the kids at the school?

  6. Maybe some sports or music equipment

  7. Lets ask them what they want .................
