Update: 1:14PM A TOTAL of 64 teachers from 32 schools across eight districts around the country underwent the National Anti-Corruption Curriculum Pilot Phase Launch workshop that will be implemented into schools next year.

In Suva today, teachers from the Central division were introduced to the National Anti-Corruption Resource manual that was developed and designed through partnership between the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) and the Ministry of Education to ensure students are taught morals to become future ethical leaders of the country.

Manager corruption prevention at FICAC Kolora Naliva said the teachers were been trained to review their teaching and learning processes in the classrooms to integrate anti-corruption lessons for students.

"After six months into this piloting phase,  our monitoring and evaluation team will move out to carry out an evaluation exercise on how effective this initiative has been to the piloted schools. And in 2019, it should be ready for implementation for the rest of the schools," she said.

"This national initiative came at the right time- with our current school system not allowing corporal punishment. This curriculum places great emphasis on values education and while students are learning and growing up to become future leaders they are also growing up to become ethical leaders."

This curriculum will be implemented into selected subjects including English, Social Science, Social Studies, History and Accounting for students between Year 5 to Year 13.
