A great chance to teach ethics

Robert and Renae Long will be moving from Crookwell in the next few months.

They have contributed generously to the local community through their business, soccer, Scouts and ethics classes at Crookwell Primary School.

The family have made good friends within the community and they will be sorely missed.

Primary Ethics is particularly grateful for Rob and Renea’s dedication and diligence in delivering the scripted lessons.

Many students from year 1 through to year 6 have enjoyed the classes they’ve given over the past two years.

Mr Long said, “I love getting the kids to discuss and consider the evidence for a broad range of topics whilst respecting different views”.  

Mrs Long also said, “The skills the children learn in ethics will help them navigate some of the big issues this generation will be facing in the future.

“I’d like to encourage parents with children enrolled in ethics to give it a try.

“There’s a training course in Goulburn on November 18 and 19 and it’s a rare opportunity to see if it suits you. Without volunteers no ethics classes will be available in 2018.

“If you can use a computer and enjoy interacting with children, the rest is a matter of a training and practice, with great support from the Primary Ethics team. 

“There is a wealth of expertise and experience always available to support you.” said Mr Long.

The family is moving to Victoria to take on an orchard and to grow blueberries.
