DUBBO parents who do not want their children to learn scriptures can be sure their children will receive quality teaching during that time, said Primary Ethics chief executive Teresa Russell.
Ms Russell said presently children who have been taken out of scriptures class are sat in another class with minimal supervision and are not allowed to be taught anything.
More than 10,000 NSW students learn ethics and next week sees the introduction of ethics in kindergarten classes.
Bathurst will host a Primary Ethics training seminar next month and Ms Russell encourage rural parents of children non-scripture class students to get on board.
"We've had some interest in volunteering within the Dubbo region, but as yet we don't run any ethics classes," she said.
The classes are taught in a different, more relaxed way by Primary Ethics trained volunteers.
Topics discussed include age appropriate lessons on fairness and logical thinking.
"We're not trying to stop them forming beliefs, but we want them to have considered those beliefs and to be able to defend them," said Primary Ethics curriculum author Dr Sue Knight.
"It's important to get kids going with this early because then they have time to build up those skills and ways of thinking," Ms Russell added.
The classes facilitate discussion, with no opinion from the teacher.
"We encourage children to have an opinion and encourage them to give sound reason as to why they have that opinion," Ms Russell said.
"It's about getting kids to look at things from all different perspectives and understanding that their actions have consequences."
Twenty-five per cent of NSW students were enrolled in non-scripture classes when Primary Ethics began and Ms Russell has been overwhelmed with the contribution they have made.
"We're focused on giving the 25 per cent something rewarding to do and the kids love it," she said.
"Anyone who has their kids in normal scripture and want them to do something meaningful can contact Primary Ethics or ask their principal and if there's enough demand we can set up classes."
