Abstract: The subject of Moral is a compulsory subject for the non-muslim learners. This study was undertaken to investigate the perceptions of the learners towards the teaching and learning of the subject. The objectives of the study are: i) to find out learners‟ perceptions towards the importance of this subject compared to other core subjects ii) to find out the learners‟ perceptions towards the importance of this subject in building up their characters iii) to find the learners‟ perceptions of this subject affecting their daily lives. A total of 50 students responded to 3 sets of questionnaires. The quantitative data were analysed and interpreted using frequency counts, percentages and bar graphs were plotted for a better picture. The findings show that 95% of the respondents strongly agreed that this subject is as important as other core subjects. 93% of the respondents strongly agreed that this subject plays a vital role in building up their characters. A very high percentage, that is 98% believed very strongly that the teaching and learning of this subject did affect their performance in daily lives. After interviewing a few respondents, they gave their feedback, among which, this subject should not be abolished from the curriculum. The learners also confessed that they need a reminder, that is, by attending Moral classes from time to time they received advices especially in building up positive attitudes as well as positive thinking in whatever situations that they are in. As a conclusion, Moral as a subject is important and therefore the lecturer who teaches the subject should take charge of his/her teaching with outstanding ability and personality, as a source of inspiration and role model for the learners.
