This research is a quantitative cross-sectional study. Questionnaires will be taken from participants to measure mental, social and physical health. In addition, Sensewear bracelets will be used during the PE lessons of the participants to collect data (MET's and number of steps).
Three short questionnaires will be taken from the boys which measure the mental, social and physical health. Completing these questionnaires will take no longer than 10 minutes in total. The questionnaires will be filled in once by each participating individual at the start of the PE lesson.
During the PE class, the participants will receive a Sensewear bracelet in which the number of METs and the number of steps during the effort are measured. A distinction will also be made between the various sports during the PE lesson. Each participant will have to wear the Sensewear bracelet once during a single PE lesson.
It is an open research in which the participants are fully informed. The participants can voluntarily choose whether or not to participate in the study. The quantitative data collected from the questionnaires and Sensewear bracelets will then be used for de-finitive interpretation and decision making.

- The level of physical health in special youth care by using a questionnaire: The Physical Activity Questionnaire for Adolescents [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Use of a questionnaire (The Physical Activity Questionnaire for Adolescents) to assess physical health: there are 9 items in this questionnaire but only the first 8 items are used to calculate the total score. For the score of the first item you take the average of all the activities. On the other items the scores are between 1 and 5. To calculate the total score for this questionnaire, you have to calculate the average for all the 8 items. The final score is between 1 and 5 with 1 indicates low physical activity and 5 indicates high physical activity.

The score on each question is between 0 and 5. To calculate the total score of this questionnaire you have to add the scores of all the 5 questions and multiply by 4. The minimum sum score of a person is equal to 0 and the maximum score is equal to 100. The lower the score, the worse the psychological health of the person
- The level of social health in special youth care by using a questionnaire: the Social Functioning Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Use of a questionnaire (the Social Functioning Questionnaire) to assess social health: The questionnaire consists of 8 items with 4 answer options each.
