  • A school’s journey to embed restorative practices - SchoolNews - Australia

    Selected Extract: 

    'Around this time, I was attending a principals’ conference and heard Adam Voigt (Real Schools) speak about this very issue. Adam’s philosophy is very much built around establishing and maintaining effective relationships in the school setting, not only student to student, but also student to teacher. A key part of this is encouraging students to actually understand the damage they may have done to their relationships with others, due to incorrect behaviour and to then help them through the process of being better at ‘getting it right’ i.e. restoring the relationship.

  • Restorative justice helps repair broken relationships

    Selected Extract: 

    'Students who attend Mille Lacs Academy undergo treatment regarding mental health, and the school provides a learning environment for the adolescents. Restorative justice is an approach that’s being used at Mille Lacs Academy School that stands in stark contrast to the zero tolerance policies that, until recently, permeated throughout schools.
