West Colchester Introduces "Circles" to their Community
On Wednesday, September 16, West Colchester Consolidated School (WCCS) introduced parents, guardians and other members of the WCCS community to the use of circles during their Parent Orientation evening. Teachers discussed best practices, their current teaching assignment and the use of the Restorative Approach in their classrooms. Meanwhile parents, guardians and community members looked on in an “outer circle”. This was an extremely effective way to give parents the opportunity to understand and ask questions about the use of relational theory and how West Colchester is building positive, lasting relationships within the school community by using this approach. Well done!
