Real Schools - Restorative Practices

We’ve been watching what’s been happening in the world of education when it comes to creating a strong school culture, to building effective relationships, to resolving conflict and to improving student behaviour and bullying. The bottom line is that we think there’s a better way.


Restorative Practices is that way. Working restoratively is really all about asking the right questions to students when things go wrong. You see, most approaches have us putting our detective hats on and focusing everything in the past. It really doesn’t get us very far because we never get to the present or the future.


Put simply, we’ll be asking your children questions like:

  • What happened?
  • How has that made people feel?
  • And what action needs to be taken to make that better?


It’s all about teaching responsibility for your actions and knowing that nobody is going to do it for you. Our job is to help them do just that … better and better and better.


There’s a LOT more to Restorative Practices and we’re going to ensure you find out all of it. Our ongoing Partnership with Real Schools is supporting and resourcing us to make this change and you have access to all the resources too.

Just head to the Member Login tab at and use the login/password kananookps to have a look at all that we’re working on at school.


We are now going to enact a restorative situation similar to what happens in the yard at school. Our actors are staff members. We hope you enjoy and learn from our demonstration.
