NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL RESTORATIVE JUSTICE MONTH IN CANADA!

 PARTICIPATE IN THE BULLETIN BOARD CHALLENGE!

 

If our schools and office spaces are to truly reflect the spirit of relationships first and restorative justice in education (RF/RJE), then our walls can be adorned with reminders of our inherent worth in the whole school community.   We are excited to see your creative ideas on how your staff and students are expressing this message through a RF/RJE-themed bulletin board challenge!

 

Bulletin boards can come from the school common areas, classrooms, or even the staff room!  The submissions with your name will be honoured by being posted on our website, Facebook, and Twitter and your name will be entered into a draw where 10 participants will receive 2 items of your choice from our  #RFBookClub (see below)
