The purpose of this paper is to explore the interrelationships between morale and job performance of secondary school teachers. This is a questionnaire survey involving secondary school teachers from four schools in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. A total number of 92 respondents were involved in this study. The findings showed that all the five factors: leadership, belongingness, environment, personal development and collegiality contributed significantly to teachers’ morale. The working environment was rated as the most important factor among the five. The structural equation modelling indicates that the '€˜environment'€™, 'personal development'€™ and 'collegiality' factors affect the feeling of '€˜personal reward'€™ of the teachers while '€˜leadership'™, '€˜belongingness'€™, '˜environment'€™ and 'personal development'€™ influenced their '€˜cohesive pride'€™. It was also found that only the 'leadership'€™ factor had a direct impact on ‘job performance’. The other morale determinants affect the 'job performance'€™ of the teachers indirectly either by affecting '€˜personal reward'€™ or 'cohesive pride'€™. (Authors' abstract)
