Restorative Practices, a powerful framework that supports children in learning how to create healthy relationships and how to resolve conflicts, was the focus of a parenting seminar hosted by Margaret River Independent School (MRIS) last week. Over 50 people attended the seminar “Teaching Children to be Accountable for Their Actions” with renowned Psychologist, Gabrielle Lawlor at The Heart in Margaret River. The parenting education seminar is one of many hosted by the school in recent years. Participants were inspired to put practical skills like promoting resilience; creating empathy and trust through rigour and accountability; and nurturing relationships into practice in their everyday family life. MRIS Principal, Wendy Roediger said she was thrilled with the community attendance and plans were in place for MRIS to host further community education sessions on positive education and wellbeing in the future.
