Introduction/Whakataki

Shirley Primary School Deputy Principal, Sandra Jamieson, reflects on the significance of six years of earthquakes, over 14,000 aftershocks, and building disruptions, for school communities seeking to care for their children’s learning and wellbeing.

Recently published research reveals that children whose development has been most affected by the earthquakes – junior class students in 2016 – have significantly higher incidences of post-traumatic stress and behaviour problems, than cohorts of children before the earthquake.

Ko nga rangahau i puta tata nei kua whakaatu mai ko ngā tamariki kua tino pāngatia e ngā ruurau - nga akonga o te akomanga i te tau 2016 - he tino nui ake te painga o te raruraru me te raruraru whanonga, i nga tamariki o mua i te ru.
