The most accepted definition of orphan is a child who has lost both parents through bereavement. In the Slovak Republic is currently registered and certified about 90 orphanages, which are located approximately 4750 children and adolescents. The objective of this study is to analyze the attitudes of children who are living in orphanage (22 boys and 28 girls, age 14.5 ± 2.13 years) attending the second stage of regular elementary schools in Bytča (Slovakia). The attitudes towards physical education (P.E.) of orphan students were examined in the sense of a school subject, reasons for P.E. lesson indifference in schools with regard of genders. The level of the amount of effort required by P.E. was very high (4.36 points); orphan students (96%) consider the P.E. lesson as very easy and easy teaching subject. 48% of orphan students are always happy and often happy when for some reason the P.E. lesson is cancelled, and only 28% of them are upset if P.E. has to be cancelled. The biggest reason for inactivity in P.E. lessons in orphan students was their laziness. There are not any significant differences among genders with regards to the amount of effort required by P.E. lessons. There are not any significant differences in opinions expressed by orphan students if for some reason a regular P.E. lesson is cancelled. The results did not show significant differences as for the reasons for P.E. lesson indifference among the genders.Pages: 161-165 | 492 Views 19 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
