National blood donation policy of India highlights on the need of supplying safe and quality blood to the need through collecting blood from regular voluntary blood donor. To assess the pretest and post test score regarding knowledge on blood donation, to evaluate the effectiveness on knowledge of blood donation among higher secondary students, to find out the association between the posttest knowledge score with selected demographic variables. The investigator used quasi-experimental research design for one group pre test& posttest. Simple Random Sampling Technique was used. Sample size 100 school students. The investigator used planned structured teaching programme to assess the knowledge of blood donation among school students. The conceptual framework selected for the this study was based on modified General System Model - Ludwig Von Bertalanffy (2011).The data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics, paired =t' test used for structured teaching programme. In this group of students pretest known mean score 12.31 and SD 2.452 and posttest mean score was 22.84SD 2.272 and =t' test value 29.11 at the significant level of P<0.05 tabulated value 1.98. so hypothesis was accepted and STP effective.
