Abstract

Recently, changes in dietary trends and modern lifestyles have led to many lifestyles related diseases. Physical activity is the best preventive measure against these diseases. Physical education (PE) has the proven potential to promote participation in physical activity. Therefore
it is important to study PE enjoyment in relation to the effectiveness of PE in secondary schools in promoting active lifestyles. The objectives is to provide the enjoyment profile among selected secondary school around Kuching Sarawak and to study relationship between enjoyment and participation in physical activity among secondary schools students in Kuching, Sarawak. A total of 370 students aged between 13-16 years were selected among the six secondary schools in the vicinity of Kuching, Sarawak. From the 273 students involved 141 male and 132 of them are female. The research involved two daily schools, two elite
schools and two missionary schools. Measurements were carried out by administrating two sets of questionnaire which are shorter versions of the international questionnaire for physical activity (IPAQ) and the physical education enjoyment questionnaire (PEEPQ). For analytical
purposes, descriptive statistics were used for primary measures, and the Pearson correlation coefficient analysis was performed to examine the relationship between PE enjoyments and total physical activity scores. Activity Generated Excitement (AGE) revealed the strongest
processes of enjoyment in this study. However, there was no significant relationship between PE enjoyment and participation in physical activity (p>0.05) among the selected secondary schools student around Kuching, Sarawak. This research finding support that the Activity
Generated Excitement process is the most important factor influencing enjoyment in PE experience. Therefore, the PE class should consider this process in order to promote
enjoyment among adolescents.
