Restorative Justice at WCS

"Restorative justice acknowledges justice as honouring the worth of all and is enacted through relationship. When something occurs that affects the well-being of some, a space is provided for dialogue whereby the dignity of all involved and affected can be restored so that each can once again become a contributing member of the community of which they are a part. (D. Vaandering, 2011).

Woodstock Christian School embraces the philosophy of restorative justice which is seen as a mirror of how God calls us to live together in community. It is a philosophy that honours the worth of all regardless of who they are or what they do. It recognizes the importance of community in individual lives and believes that the healing of broken relationships is possible. As image-bearers of God, the task that students, teachers and parents have at WCS is to live a life of service to God and to each other.Christian love, as found in 1 Corinthians 13, forms the basis for all interaction between the teachers, the parents, and the students. Together we strive to create within the school a wholesome and safe environment where students are equipped to learn and God is honoured.

"Restorative justice in education cultivates relational school cultures that nurture the well-being of all. D. Vaandering, 2012).
