St. Joseph School staff, students and parents have all recevied a special and unique presentation about Restorative Practice.
The four key elements of Restorative Practice, which are integral to each other, include a fair process, explicit practice, the Restorative Questions and the Practice Domains. Justice and fairness provide the foundation upon which healthy relationships are built.
Questions that are asked in this practice are:
When things go wrong...
What were you thinking of at the time?
What have you thought about since?
Who has been affected by what you have done? In what way?
What do you think you need to do to make things right?
When someone has been harmed...
What did you think when you realised what had happened?
What impact has this incident had on you and others?
What has been the hardest thing for you?
What do you think needs to happen to make things right?Mr. Bruce Shank lead the Grade 5 & 6 class through the Restorative Practice Seminar

Our school staff is getting ready to hit the streets!
Christmas is a time for giving, but for many families, it can be difficult to put food on the table. We want to give our community a gift from the heart and remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Tuesday night, December 13, our staff members will be heading out into our community to collect non-perishables and canned goods to donate to the food bank. Watch for us, as we ride along in our musical Christmas truck from 5:30p.m to 8:30.p.m
How can you help?
Simply attach a glow stick to a plastic bag containing your donated goods. The glowing sticks will alert our staff of your package placed in your driveway along the route. If you would like to contribute but do not live within the selected route, you may drop them off on the steps of our church, the school or perhaps in the driveway of school friends.
Christmas is a time to open our hearts and to receive peace in return.Students Pictured with Collected Food
