On behalf of the Editorial Executive, we begin this edition expressing our condolences to the people of Christchurch, New Zealand and Sri Lanka for the recent loss of many innocent lives and devastating assault on their communities. Our condolences go out to any members of the Journal community who were directly affected by these senseless atrocities. We use this platform to affirm our commitment to the values associated with tolerance and diversity.
We believe that we speak on behalf of the Health and Physical Education fraternity in believing that there is never a justification for violence or prejudice, or any behaviour that diminishes others in the name of race, religion, colour, culture, sexuality or gender. We proudly present this edition of Curriculum Studies in Health and Physical Education
in a spirit of looking forward within a research community committed to improving the practices and understandings of the field and the lives of those within it. In this edition, we welcome Eimear Enright, Laura Alfrey and Göran Gerdin to an expanded editorial executive.
I hope, like me, you find the suite of papers presented in this edition of Curriculum Studies in Health and Physical Education interesting and engaging. On behalf of the Editorial Executive, I thank the many reviewers who have played a role in bringing this edition together and look forward to sharing further scholarship with you in up-coming editions.
