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. Classes run for 30 – 45 minutes at a set time each week, which is usually at the same time as SRE (Special Religious Education).
