Primary Ethics New England/North West

Primary Ethics is the approved provider of Special Education in Ethics (SEE) in NSW public primary schools.

There are 500 schools participating in the program across the state.

In New England, Armidale City Public School now offers a full K – 6 ethics program. After holding our first regional training in March 2019, we are working with other schools including Drummond Memorial Public School and Ben Venue Public School to begin delivering ethics classes.

Introducing ethics classes for Tamworth and the North West

With sufficient local support, we are planning to hold the first ethics teacher training in Tamworth in July.

If you are a parent, carer, school staff member or community member interested in being involved in supporting the introduction of ethics classes into the Tamworth region, please get in touch using the contact form below for more information.

What happens in an ethics class?

Primary Ethics classes provide students from K – 6 with the opportunity to learn skills in critical thinking, respectful discussion and the capacity to make well-reasoned decisions rather than those based on peer pressure or habit.

What is in the curriculum?

All of our 79 curriculum topics have been reviewed by the Department of Education. Read more
