Practitioner Restorative Stories

About the Practitioner


By 2003 Graeme had been teaching for 20 years and he was searching for a better way of working with young people than the traditional approach. It was at this time that he met Terry O'Connell, and later Marg Thorsborne.

Graeme worked with Marg on developing a Restorative Practice process for his school for the next 18 months however realised in 2005 that for it to be truly effective the school would need to take ownership and develop its own training and professional development program. 

Graeme continues to believe RP is most effective in schools when those involved own the process and integrate the philosophy and practice across all aspects of the school’s work. 

Brings to the Discussion: 

Graeme was a school leader for many years, but is once again full-time in the classroom and he brings this current practical experience, along with his theoretical expertise, to his work with other teachers and school leaders. He regularly assists schools and school systems with their implementation of restorative practices and related social emotional learning programs, and his current research interest is in the development of an authentic relational pedagogy. 

Graeme believes it's always interesting to stop and reflect on what you do, and how you might do it more effectively. 

Additional Information: 

Teachers are change agents in the lives of their students. That’s why they do what they do. Relationships are the technology of teaching. That’s how they do what they do.
