RP stands for Restorative Practices – which adapts the philosophy and practice of Restorative Justice especially for use in schools.

This resource site was established by a teacher from Villanova College, Brisbane. Here you will find links to websites, articles, books and videos on Restorative Practices in the School setting, as well some of the locally-produced resources that are in use within the College. We hope that having these links all in one place will prove helpful to busy people in schools who would like to know more about Restorative Practices.

Restorative Practice Article

A Dominion Post article from Feb 2012 on Restorative Practices in Schools. Interesting the quote – However, it worked well only if the school invested time and resources. “It takes a lot of professional development, and it’s a big commitment by schools.”

Restorative Practice website

A website by Greg and Richard who have been using Restorative approaches for a number of years in a variety of contexts, working with children and young people and staff groups from both inside and beyond the education sector. This site includes traning days and useful newsletters.

The essence of restorative practices is disarmingly simple: that human beings are happier, more productive and more likely to make positive changes in their behaviour when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.
