Restorative Practice

In 2014 St Mark's launched the Restorative Practice program. The aim of the program focuses on making friends and caring for them. Restorative Practice aims to:

  • Repair the harm done to individuals and relationships after a conflict.
  • Provide strategies for social and emotional learning.
  • Offer wrongdoing as an opportunity to learn.
  • Build and maintain strong and nurturing relationships.

At St Mark's the Restorative Practice philosophy focuses on:

  • Compassion
  • Forgiveness
  • Hope

A group of Mentors from Years 3-6 is present on the playground every recess and lunch to help their fellow students develop and maintain healthy relationships.
