Yesterday, our class was lucky enough to participate in a restorative behaviours workshop with Terry O’Connell from Real Justice. This was a great session and built upon some of the work that has already been happening at Coburg North.
The Restorative Practices model recognises that consistency in response to behaviour helps to create a safe and comfortable learning environment. It also helps to further develop interpersonal skills, communication and gives students a frame work in which they can resolve their problems.
Each student has been given a set of cards containing questions to use to assist them resolve issues they may experience. Teachers will be using these questions as well. Please find these attached.
