The 25 Years In project aims to answer the questions: where have we been, where are we now and where to from here?
The 25 Years In project will try to understand our past, our present and our future by:
1. Conducting a national survey on school’s current practice
2. Exploring Australia’s historic role with RP through interviews with people involved in the origins
3. Creating profiles of schools across Australia doing ‘stand-out’ work with RP and feature these on this website.
4. Connecting people across the country who are interested in seeing RP thrive in Australia
Kristin is a lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University.
Kristin is leading this project, driven by her curiosity to learn about Restorative Practice in her adopted land. A strong supporter of Restorative Justice, Kristin moved to Australia from Canada in 2016.
In this large and beautiful land, Kristin found it difficult to have a real sense of the good Restorative work happening across it. Restorative Schools Australia is meant to serve as a place people can come to when they want an overview of Restorative Practice in Australian schools.
Kristin has designed the website to celebrate transformative practice, provide information about trainings and events across the country and connect people to support and challenge one another to live, teach and learn restoratively.
Kristin welcomes your comments and questions.
