Ethics co-ordinator attends official reception
A Umina Beach Public School ethics co-ordinator Ms Penny Jope has attended a reception at Parliament House hosted by the NSW Governor Mr David Hurley.
Mr Hurley hosted the event to recognise the contributions of Primary Ethics and their long serving volunteers.
Umina Beach Public School was an early adopter of the program, having offered ethics classes since Primary Ethics commenced 6 years ago.
"We now have eight trained volunteer teachers delivering ethics classes each week," said principal, Ms Lyn Davis.
"We have ethics classes available for all year levels from Kindy through to Year 6.
"Ethics classes are discussion-based, covering a range of age-appropriate topics.
"Children learn to express their own views as well as to listen carefully to, and consider, the views of others.
"Ethics classes run weekly during the school year within the Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics timeslot.
"If you wish for your child to attend ethics classes, please advise the school via a letter or email," Ms Davis said.
