This study was designed to examine the effects of weight reduction programme(WRP) for obese primary school students on serum lipid level. This research used non-equivalent control group non-synchronized design that was conducted on two groups comprising 5th and 6th graders: an experimental group that received 12-week long WRP that combines diet, exercise and behavior modification therapy and the control group that did only rope-jumping. The collected data were analysed using -test, t-test, ANOVA, Pairwise Comparsons by SPSS 18.0 Programme. It was proven that the WRP of this study was effective in lowering the total cholesterol(F=4.21, p=.049) and triglyceride(F=4.25, p=.049). WRP may be used as a basis for further studies that may be conducted after intervening the motivation level of the study subjects.
