Congratulations Geoff, so important – let’s get Restorative practice – to be THE way of life into all schools across the country – something I have actively worked on throughout my work with the Department of Education. Punitive models must be replaced by restorative ones as the basis for all this work! Systemic educational change must happen across the board! Congrats! You have our support!
