Hawke’s Bay 'CDEM Group' wants everyone in Hawke’s Bay to know how to prepare for a natural disaster. What is our risk of earthquake, flooding, tsunami and even a volcanic eruption?

Children also need to know what to do for their own safety. So, the suggestion was to make a movie - it's an active way to reinforce learning.

TThe competition was open to all Hawke’s Bay schools with prizes in 3 categories: Primary, Intermediate and Secondary. Following the judging of 16 entries 3 finalists have been selected.

  • Omakere School – ‘Taking us Higher’
  • Tamatea Intermediate – ‘A lesson in Earthquake Action’
  • Takapau School – Earthquake Movie 2014

The overall winner was announced at an Awards Ceremony “The entries this year were some of the best we have seen”, says Ian Macdonald, Group Manager for HBCDEM Group.


The movies from the three finalist's are below.

Omakere School - 'Taking Us Higher'


Tamatea Intermediate - ' A Lesson in Earthquake Action'
