Abstract

Water plays a very important role in everyday life. However, water pollution has resulted in changes to the quality of the river water, especially when it is among the most important sources of water in everyday life. The teacher and the school staff are role models for students in developing moral values. This study aimed to find out the teachers' attitudes, knowledge, awareness, skills and participation of the importance of the river and water and the relationship between each other. This study used a survey method. A total of 143 questionnaires containing seven parts had been distributed to school teachers and staff in Selangor. Data were analysed using SPSS Version 15. The findings showed that the overall knowledge, attitude, awareness, and participation of teachers and staff on the importance of the river and the water were low. No significant relationship was also found between knowledge and attitudes, awareness, skills and participation of teachers and staff on the importance of rivers and water.
