National Health & Physical Education (HPE) Day is a nationwide initiative that highlights the importance of HPE in the Australian Curriculum, and its influence on the learning and development of children.
The theme is
Good for Children, Good for Schools, Good for Communities, and this year's event will be celebrated on Thursday 12th September 2019.
ACHPER welcomes Sport Australia and Tennis Australia as Partners for National Health and Physical Education Day for 2019.
Why National HPE Day?
An educated nation, comprising active
and healthy young people, is the best investment we can make in the future.
Learning in HPE makes an important, positive difference to students and their lifelong participation and health outcomes.
Parents and caregivers also play a central role in promoting, facilitating and modelling positive lifestyle behaviours.
