Teaching today is a tough job – your Teachers and your School Leaders deserve the best help available.
Australian schools are great – but the task of sustaining the effort and thinking required to stay at the top comes with a price – the culture of your school, the stress levels of your people, the wellbeing of your students.

A Real Schools high-level mentoring program for School Leaders on the quest to establish theirs as a truly restorative school.
Many Australian schools have a restorative intention. Many have also failed to enact that intention. And some, in the middle, have been able to implement a few restorative principles well.
Perhaps they got some formal conferencing going or perhaps they found a slightly less punitive pathway to handle student misconduct – and perhaps some staff members didn’t.
But most never quite enjoyed the full benefit of establishing and sustaining a truly restorative culture.
This program is for School Leaders have identified that, in their schools, there is some distance between the ambition for a strong, relational, productive School Culture and their current reality.
This program is for School Leaders who, frankly, are impatient for genuine implementation and have a bias for impact.
This program closes the gap between aspiration and current practice in a way that focuses on both building leadership capacity and the provision of practical tools and strategies.
