Woy Woy South Public School is seeking volunteers to teach ethics classes at the school.

“We are seeking volunteers so that we can continue to offer ethics classes to children right through from Kindergarten to Year 6,” said principal Mr Matt Barr. Ethics teachers receive complimentary training by Primary Ethics, the not-for-profi t organisation approved to deliver the ethics program. “Primary Ethics training consists of a two-day workshop and a couple of hours of online training,” said Mr Barr.

“Easy to follow lesson materials are provided. “Suitable volunteers have an interest in children’s education and development of critical thinking skills and must be available for half an hour from either 9am or 9:30am each Tuesday morning (during teaching weeks),” Mr Barr said. “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,” Mr Barr said. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact the school’s ethics coordinator, Ms Julie Hatfield.
