Effect of healthy activity programmes on kinesthetic perception and self-concept among school students


Anup De, Soumendranath Ghosh

Purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of healthy activity programmes on kinesthetics perception and self-concept among school students.

Subjects were selected from Banipur Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Northn 24 Paraganas, West Bengal. Total 80 (eighty) sample sizes were randomly selected in two age groups i.e. 12 year and 14 year. The age of the subjects were ranged between 11-14 years.

Variables were considered under kinesthetic perception and self-concept for identifying the effect of healthy activity programme.

Criteria of kinesthetics perception and self-concept were measured as “Distance perception jump” test and Dr. Raj Kumar Saraswat standardized self-concept questionnaire respectively.

Experimental protocol was made by pretest and post-test structure of two experimental groups and two control groups. Six week healthy activity programme was given only to experimental group.

Statistics were done on mean, Standard deviation, standard error of mean, and ANCOVA for investigating the effect of healthy activity programme on school students in which level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence.

Result of the present study shows that there is no significant effect of healthy activity programmes on 12 yrs school students in respect of kinesthetic perception. Significant effect has been found on healthy activity programmes of under 14 yrs school students in respect of kinesthetic perception. It is also found that healthy activity programmes have significant effect on self-concept among under 12 yrs and under 14 yrs school students.

Findings associated that kinesthetic perception and student self-concept increase according to chronological growth of age. Because the age gradually acquires higher physical fitness and their neuro-physiological demands are more.

Implementation is leads that if healthy activity programme can continuously be maintained then kinesthetic perception and self-concept may be developed and healthful citizens may be created.

Conclusions are made that healthy activity programmes have a significant effect for maintaining and improving kinesthetic perception and self-concept of 12 year, 14 year school students.
