Primary Ethics

Could you be an Ethics Teacher for Forest Lodge Public School? Ethics classes at our school are held by parent volunteers, and where there are enough volunteers, ethics classes are available for children attending non-scripture.

Ethics Teachers receive full training by Primary Ethics – a two day workshop and short online modules. Curriculum and access to teaching resources is provided. Suitable volunteers have an interest in children’s education and developing their critical thinking skills and must be available at 11.30 or 12pm every Friday of school term.

In ethics classes, children learn how to think logically, disagree respectfully and support their arguments with evidence, rather than act according to blind habit or peer pressure.

Children discuss topic such as:
-imagining how others feel
-how do we treat living things?
-what is laziness?
-how do we disagree in a respectful way?
