Conference on Restorative Practices

4 April 2023

St Mary’s Masters student, Maeve Wright, attended the Education Authority’s recent conference on Restorative Practices held on 23 March in Antrim.

Speaking of the conference, Maeve noted that "it was a great opportunity to meet people across various sectors who are trying to develop professional practices which are more about human relationships and less transactional. It was an inspiring day."

Maeve is currently conducting research on the challenges that face schools as they start out on the path to becoming a Restorative Practice school.
