Summary/Abstract: Objectives. Fatigue is a phenomenon that occurs after an intense high school activity, which manifests in a different way for each student during the intense process of growth. The purpose of this research was to identify the presence of fatigue and some aggravating/alleviating factors (TV watching or computer work/physical activity) among 13-15 years old pupils from rural areas.Material and methods. The study was conducted on a sample of 53 eighth grade students from two elementary and secondary schools, one in Vânători commune, Iasi county (19 subjects), and the other in Băceşti commune, Vaslui county (34 subjects). Pupils were asked to complete a questionnaire on the generating factors of fatigue. The data were processed using the Pearson test.They completed a questionnaire on the generating fatigue factors. Processing of the results was performed using the Pearson test.Results. Fatigue is reported by 24.5% of the surveyed students, the calculated differences are not statistically significant (p > 0.05). About 33.9 % students wake up tired in the morning, a fact which occurs in both villages, while the calculated differences are not significant (p > 0.05). Fatigue is frequently present at the beginning (20.7%) or middle part of the week (32.1 %), the calculated differences being also statistically insignificant (p > 0.05). Students play sports under 30 minutes (41.5%) or up to an hour (18.9%). Physical inactivity appears also in rural areas as an unwanted element. In most cases, young people are watching TV daily during 2-3 hours (52.8%) and working on the computer 2-3 hours (33.9%). Although students need 9 hours of sleep each day, in most cases (60.4 %) this goal is not reached.Conclusions. The results confirm the presence of school fatigue and advocate for a change in the structure of the recreational activities.
