Working with the staff at Belmont High School as we explore behaviour management in the context of student engagement.
2014 was a fantastic year and it was wonderful meeting teachers and students in the Western region of NSW during the winter months.
The recent journey into the Sonoma county of California consolidated my views on the value of restorative justice and listening to all stakeholders in times of conflict. I spent some time with my sister who runs a non profit mediation service , Recourse Mediation, they are currently working with families to increase school attendance for chronic truants.
Back here in NSW I have recently been endorsed as a provider by BOSTES (Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards).
