Peer Mediation

Tirimoana School is a 'Cool School'. 
In the playground we practise peer mediation and peaceful conflict resolution. We expect all children to accept consequences for breaking school rules and for unacceptable behaviour. We practise a restorative approach to shaping behaviour at school. Children are encouraged to think about the effects that an action may have on another person and redress this in some positive way.
