Physical Education is important every week, but Term 4, Week 5 is the week to celebrate it - save the date for 2023!
Physical Education Week promotes and highlights the importance of Health & PE in the Australian Curriculum to the learning and development of children and young people. All students have a right to receive quality physical education teaching and learning programs.
Thank you to the 188 Schools and 63,201 students who registered their involvement in PE Week 2022! Registrations for 2023 will open late Term 3 - registering your School's participation is FREE and you will receive the free ACHPER SA PE Week Activities Booklet, to be released in Term 4.
How Can Schools Participate?
ACHPER SA have made celebrating easy:

Own School Activities
Run some activities in your class or with the whole school! Start a lunch time teacher vs student competition, increase active brain breaks during the day, focus on wellbeing in the classroom... the opportunities are endless! Theme Days have also been developed to assist with your in-School activities - see number 2 for more information.
Our FREE PE Week Resource Booklet will give you a number of ideas, posters and activities to download and implement. This Resource E-Book is free for every teacher who registers their participation in PE Week. The E-Book will be available to download in Term 4 - register your school's participation in PE Week using the button below, and we will send you the free resource booklet once it is released.
