Kiwis offer creative tributes to remember victims of the Christchurch attacks

Creative tributes to victims of the Christchurch attacks have grown over the past week as schools and even a farmer from Southland took time to remember those who lost their lives one week ago. 

Students and staff from Thames High School joined together today to form a peace sign to mark the remembrance of victims of the Christchurch shootings last week.

Meanwhile, thousands gathered in Hagley Park in Christchurch, where a Muslim Call to Prayer went out as well as a two-minute silence to remember those who lost their lives on March 15.

The students held their own mark of silence within the peace sign as a tribute and show of solidarity.

Schools from across the country have also paid tribute to the victims and their loved ones.
