Help celebrate the importance of HPE in the Australian Curriculum and the health and well-being of our future generations on HPE Day.
When it comes to how to get involved, the only limit is imagination – so get moving, because every step counts! Register your school now!
Why not take your class outside for a lesson or organise a PE-related excursion? Schools, why not plan a fun run or walk for your students? If you are a parent, why not walk home with the kids or take them to a nearby park for some play time after school?
Australian school children rank among the worst in the world when it comes to their physical activity levels. To tackle this problem, they need to be taught skills and have better knowledge and understanding of how to lead active and healthy lifestyles.
That’s why National Health and Physical Education (HPE) Day has been designed to raise awareness of, and advocate for, a greater focus of HPE in our schools.
The theme of HPE Day 2022 is Good for Children, Good for Schools and Good for Communities.
