Samoa's government has endorsed for the first time a compulsory Christian teachings curriculum for all government schools to be included in the 2010 school year programme.

The government says Samoa is founded on Christian beliefs and the Samoan culture but only culture is included in the school teachings.

The Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture is preparing the new curriculum.
