In time, not very much time at all, it will be the decisions of the children we teach today that will shape the world.

Ethics classes are designed to get children thinking, deeply and well, about ethical issues.

COVID update

The NSW Government has announced a staged return to school for children who are in locked down areas from 25 October, with Level 3 restrictions. Areas not in lockdown have now returned to school under Level 3 restrictions, which means no ethics classes in schools.

On 3 September 2021, the Department of Education announced that all staff and visitors to schools, including ethics volunteers, will be required to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19. We expect to be returning to schools in Term 1 2022.
