Ethics teachers recognised in volunteer awards
Two of Ettalong Public School's volunteer ethics teachers, Ms Kim Sutton (Year 4) and Ms Linda Ferguson (Year 6), have been recognised at the NSW Volunteer of the Year Award for the Central Coast region.
School principal Ms Lynn Balfour said: "Each week our committed ethics teachers deliver lessons to more than 100 students across all stages at Ettalong.
"Ethics classes aim to help the children develop the skills of critical thinking, viewing ethical issues from different angles, carefully listening to what others have to say and disagreeing respectfully.
"Ethics classes can be taught by parents, carers, grandparents, other family, or members of the community.
"If you would like to consider volunteering, or know someone who may be interested,
contact our ethics coordinator and ethics teacher Ms Linda Ferguson on 0428 888 742.
