This paper explores the way good and active citizenship may be motivated and enabled through school curricula in the Solomon Islands. Tn the Solomon Islands, it was assumed that past and current school practices did not prepare students adequately on how to conduct themselves and effectively relate to their diverse neighbors and live as good and active citizens within the complex and dynamic national social environment. Therefore, it was agreed to teach moral values and virtue but must come from cultural and religious values common to most Solomon Islands.
