Special Education in Ethics SEE

Special Ethics Education (SEE) classes support children to develop a life-long capacity for making well-reasoned decisions about ethical issues. Through balanced argument students learn to disagree respectfully, to challenge ideas and to support their arguments with considered evidence. 

Our volunteer SEE teachers use lesson materials which present a range of stories, scenarios and questions to generate discussion. SEE teachers are trained to impartially facilitate student discussions, helping students develop their critical thinking and collaborative inquiry skills. 

SEE teachers support student learning by:

  • showing genuine curiosity and interest in the questions being discussed
  • staying neutral
  • creating space for students to think, share ideas, give reasons and ensuring

Information on the curriculum and teaching methods / qualifications is available at primaryethics.com.au

If you want your child to do SEE, please complete the form and return it to the school.

Please note, however, that we can only provide these classes to students if we have sufficient volunteers willing to undergo the necessary teacher-training.  If you are interested in doing this rewarding work, more information can be found here.
