At Bream Bay College, Restorative Conferencing is the way that most discipline issues are resolved, from suspendable offences to playground disputes. Conferences are sometimes a daily occurance. This paper will present my reflections on working this way with students, staff, parents and the wider community. I will discuss some of the opportunities and challenges that our school community faces as well as the ways of working that seem to produce successful conference outcomes.
