Kia ora and welcome to the home site for PB4L Restorative Practice.   As you may know, since September 2015 the University of Waikato through the Institute for Professional Learning has been working in partnership with the Ministry of Education to bring Restorative Practice to approved schools in Aotearoa over the next three years.  Just under 50 schools were already signed up through the MOE Pilot and Uptake programmes, and others have since signalled their desire to participate.  Our Regional Support Coordinators, Moana, Rachel and Sheridan, accompanied on their initial visit  by our Expert Trainers, Greg and/or Rich, have visited these schools, to talk about their RP plans going forward. Increasing numbers of schools have had Essentials training, or dates have been set for 2016 (and in some cases getting into 2017!).  We are encouraging all our schools to use the Kete as well as their Regional Coordinator to think about the individual school's specific needs. Our Coordinators are providing ongoing support for schools to develop understanding of the Kete and how it can be used.

We are very proud of our team, including the folks in the office at Innovation Park in Hamilton, who keep us organised and generally sustain our practice.  You can find out more about our Team and our Regional Coordinators under the Introducing the Team tab on the left. 

We welcome approaches from all secondary schools who would like to begin training or have further training in RP, but you will also need to approach your MOE Regional Manager.    

All interested educators are welcome to investigate the resources on this site, and to ask questions.  We will add closed groups for schools who are part of the project as we become involved with more schools.  As we move forward we hope the VLN will also become one place where schools in the project will be able to connect with others in your region, or with schools who have similar interests.  

Ngā mihi from the Team at Waikato.

    We thought you might be interested in some of our observations so far. In general schools have been very happy to hear from us and want to get on with the training. We appreciate that schools have been willing to make a time to meet with us, even...
