Ethical understanding

In this subject, students extend and apply their ethical understanding by, for example:

  • identifying religiously derived ethical codes and social‑justice principles that exist within, between, and outside religious communities, including principles relating to human rights, sustainability, and working for peace
  • articulating and justifying their ethical positions, while respecting others’ culture, personal experience, world views, and ethical viewpoints
  • identifying and considering ideology, consumerism, and socio‑economic models, in order to reflect with empathy and act with ethical understanding
  • planning, implementing, and reviewing strategies to address injustice and inequality.
