Primary Ethics New England

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. Two of these are in New England: Armidale City Public School and Kellys Plains Public School. Ethics classes are planned to start at Drummond Memorial Public School shortly. We’d like to introduce Primary Ethics to more schools in the New England and North West regions in 2019 and 2020.

Ethics classes are facilitated by trained volunteers. The commitment is around an hour a week. We are pleased to be offering a training session for new volunteers in March 2019.

Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to apply prior to by March 1 if possible to allow time for an interview, background checks and completion of online introductory course at

Armidale ethics teacher training

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.
