Congratulations to Peter Wright, ACHPER Life Member

We are delighted to announce Peter Wright has been awarded the prestigious ACHPER Life Membership.

Peter’s contribution and involvement with ACHPER spans over 38 years and we are so proud he has been recognised this way.

Over his years of ACHPER membership, Peter has embodied and epitomised service to the community, particularly in his support of physical education and life-long physical activity. He has shared his passion for the positive benefits of physical activity and physical education throughout his career, which has involved not only his work in-school as an educator and leader, but also in significant work both with School Sport Victoria and ACHPER.

Peter’s calm, constructive leadership has allowed him to communicate his vision of making life better for so many and encourages others to follow him and continue the work he started. Peter’s name is included in landmark resources utilised by students to this day.

Peter has been influential in encouraging students to achieve their dreams, and his principled leadership within ACHPER – as State President and on the National Strategic Review Committee has enabled the organisation grow and thrive.

Peter’s long term, continuous, high level professional commitment to ACHPER and to physical education in Australia is truly meritorious. His contribution has been outstanding, rendering him a most worthy recipient of the Life Member Award.

Please join us for an evening of celebration on 28 June as we honour the outstanding achievements of our members and educators and announce award the winners of the 2023 ACHPER Victoria Awards of Excellence at our in-person Awards Night. All the details including ticket sales here >>
