Please note that from Wednesday both the Life Education and Dental vans

PARENT INFORMATION MEETING - RESTORATIVE PRACTICE
Thursday 3 April, 7.00-8.30pm
This year as part of the school’s programme for managing behaviour we will begin implementing the model of Restorative Practice. To help our community understand the changes that will be implemented we will be running regular updates in the school’s newsletter as well as a parent information meeting.
Over the past two years most of our staff have been involved in an intensive professional development on Restorative Practice facilitated by Marg Thorsborne, who is world renowned in implementing Restorative Practice in schools. She also works with a large number of community groups throughout Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and will be coming to the parent meeting on Thursday 3rd April.
