How does this picture make you feel? Question (1-2 mins) How does this picture make you feel? Do you think this is the best response to the tragedy in Christchurch? This is a picture of New Zealands Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern hugging a mourner outside a mosque as the country paid tribute to the victims of the Christchurch shootings. 2

Does tragedy bring people together? 3 Why are we learning about this? On Friday 15th March, 50 people were killed and another 50 wounded in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. This was the deadliest attack in the country's history. New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said: This can only be described as a terrorist attack. These are people who I would describe as having extremist views, that

have absolutely no place in New Zealand and in fact, no place in the world. 4 How has the world responded? We are going to look at pictures, videos and news articles on how the world responded to the attacks in Christchurch. Group task (5-7 mins) Look at the information on the next slide and consider the following questions: 1) What do you think about how the world has responded? 2) Is it how you would expect people to respond to a tragedy? 3) What does it tell you about how people feel about what happened? 4) Has tragedy brought people closer together?

5 How has the world responded? 0:00 2:23 Click to watch a video of the response to the attacks. The public took to social media to express their sadness through messages of support, love and kindness as well as drawings. World leaders and cities said they stood with New Zealand. Monuments around

the world (like the Sydney Opera House) lit up with the silver fern, the symbol of New Zealand. Players and fans at the Six Nations rugby observed a moment of silence. Australian Senator Fraser Anning posted a series of tweets claiming that there are links between Muslim immigration and violence. https://safeshare.tv/x/eWv-3mm3XDE The paths we can take in reacting to tragedy Individual question (1-2 mins) Before we start, have a quick think about how you

would initially react to a tragedy of any sort (natural disaster, famine, terrorism). Tragic event (Natural disaster, famine, war, terrorist attack) When something terrible happens, there are different paths you can take. Pair activity (4-6 mins) On the next slide are two paths. Have a look at them, and as a pair decide: 1) Which is the better response to tragedy? 2) Which response do you think you would have?

3) Which response do you think most people have? 4) Are there any other paths we could take? 7 The paths we can take in reacting to tragedy* Pat h1 We can look for someone (an individual or a group) to blame for the tragedy. We can separate ourselves from that group and point out how

they are different. We can then try and solve the problem by punishing the group or pushing them out. We can focus on helping those who are the most hurt or upset. We can come together and get to know each other and our community

better. We can look at how the whole community can make the area safer. Tragic event (Natural disaster, famine, war, terrorist attack) Pat h2 Does tragedy bring people together? No NO Across the world, leaders

sometimes argue about how to deal with tragedies or attacks. Social media and the internet has many angry comments about how to deal with attacks or tragedies. Tragedies in my life or tragedies around me make me nervous about other people. They dont make me want to get to know others better. 9 Does tragedy bring people together? Yes YES Across New Zealand and around the world, there has been a big effort to support and look after people who were affected by the Christchurch mosque attacks. I think tragedies bring out the

good in people. When tragedy happens, I think people get closer together and learn more about their community. On social media people have been sending messages of support to the victims of tragedies. 10 Vote Now on www.votesforschools.com 11
