The study on the implementation of environmental education aims to determine the perceptions of teachers from various primary schools with regard to the implementation of environmental education in the Human and Social Sciences. The study also aim to investigate factors that hamper the successful implementation of environmental education in primary schools. It is revealed in the introductory orientation of the study that attempts to inform and train teachers in curriculum development skills, activities and knowledge have not been fruitful. The findings and recommendations of this study are expected to improve teachers’ interest in and awareness of environmental issues and to help them realise the need to integrate environmental education in primary schools. Based on the findings, it is recommended that curriculum developers should encourage teachers to become part of the curriculum development because they are the primary implementers who play primary roles during the process. Teacher support-mechanisms through workshops, seminars and teacher training programmes should be provided to in-service and pre-service teachers in order to ensure that all teachers are well skilled.
