Central West primary school ethics teachers and managers have participated in the state’s first Primary Ethics conference in Sydney.
Margaret Crowther, an ethics class teacher and program co-ordinator at Canowindra Public School, Sue Moffat, volunteer regional manager of Primary Ethics for the Central West and based in Orange and Darrin Yates, ethics coordinator/teacher from Millthorpe Public School joined 350 people from all over NSW at the conference.
Ms Crowther said ethics programs were important for schools.
“Developing an ethics program at your local school is a simple way to make a big difference in your community,” she said.
“The ethics program definitely helps children develop more practical thinking and discussion skills for our changing world.”
