Ethics classes at Brisbania Public School

Could you be an ethics teacher for Brisbania?

Our numbers have grown considerably since we started Ethics at Brisbania in Term 2 2015 and we need to recruit some more volunteer Ethics teachers in order to meet the demand.

Ethics teachers receive full training by Primary Ethics, the not-for-profit organisation approved to design curriculum and training for the ethics program. Training consists of a two day workshop and short online modules. Lesson materials are provided. Suitable volunteers have an interest in children's education and development of critical thinking skills and must be available on Wednesday mornings each week (classes run for 30 minutes each between 11.15 and 12.50 depending on which year you are teaching).

In ethics classes, children learn how to think logically, disagree respectfully and support their arguments with evidence, rather than act according to blind habit or peer pressure.

Children discuss topic such as:

-imagining how others feel

-how do we treat living things?

-what is laziness?

-how do we disagree in a respectful way?


If you are looking for an opportunity to make a valuable contribution to our school, please visit and contact Suzanne Petrie Sapsford, Ethics Co-ordinator, on 0423036697.
