Ethics classes are now available in NSW public schools as an option for children who do not attend Special Religious Education (SRE)/Scripture. The NSW Government has authorised Primary Ethics, a not-for profit organisation, to design curriculum and deliver these classes. Curriculum is available for children from years K-6.
Classes are inquiry based and children use dialogue and discussion to learn how to think about ethical matters through the give-and-take of reasoned argument. Trained and vetted volunteer teachers lead discussions.
