From a context characterized by a high rate of misbehavior among children in the society as well as in school, a preoccupation of developing the place given to moral in curriculum development, this study is aimed at investigating the relationship between teaching moral education in school and pupils’ behaviour. The hypothesis which guided this study was the following: there is a significant relationship between teaching/learning activities related to moral education and pupils’ behaviour. Through a survey design where 50 teachers randomly selected from 11 schools in Santa sub-division, the findings revealed that the correlation between teaching/learning activities and pupils’ behaviour was significant. The study revealed also that if most pupils showed a disruptive behaviour, it was because most teachers they lacked skills in organizing content material and did not involve children in activities that permitted them to develop life skills.
