Jane Needham SC and Howard Packer were involved in a recent trial of teaching of ethics in public schools. These sessions provide some thought-provoking and exciting opportunities for those children whose parents chose not to have them taught special religious education (a right recognised by the Department of Education).ï¿½
The trial was for Term 2 and has now finished.ï¿½ It is being independently evaluated and, if successful, a programme of ethics teaching may be rolled out in public schools in the future. The programme needs volunteer teachers. If you, or someone you know, is interested in being trained as an ethics teacher to assist with the programme once it is rolled out, please fill in this form or send an e-mail to Teresa Russell indicating that you are interested in having your name added to the list of prospective ethics teachers.
