CELEBRATE HPE WEEK 2019 WITH US 4 - 8 MARCH
ACHPER QLD is again proud to partner with RHS to bring HPE Week to Queensland! HPE Week is a week that celebrates the role of Health & Physical Education in schools and communities. The aim is to promote the importance of HPE in the Australian Curriculum and highlight the importance of HPE to the learning and development of children and young people.

The 2019 RHS Daily Activity Book will be uploaded to our HPE Week page on Monday 18 Feb. We love to see how your school does HPE Week and there are some great prizes up for grabs like sporting equipment vouchers and free registration to ACHPER QLD PD events, for participating schools.

To be in the draw your school does not have to conduct the suggested Daily Activities but it does have to show some evidence of participation in HPE Week by sending us a link to social media posts or some photos to communications@achperqld.org.au. Use the hashtag #HPEWeek. We love to see the innovative programs run by our Queensland communities.
