CELEBRATE HPE WEEK WITH US!
 This year's HPE week, proudly supported by RHS, is going to be a cracker! The list of Daily Activities can now be downloaded from our website. Register to be in the running for some great prizes. 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 events@achperqld.org.au. Use the hashtag #HPEWeek.
 
ACHPER QLD 2018 CALENDAR OUT NOW
The ACHPER QLD Calendar for 2018 can be viewed here. There will also be a series of in-depth workshops on the new Senior HPE subject matter rolled out over the year. Stay tuned for the dates and locations of these.
 
GET INVOLVED IN ORIENTEERING
Orienteering Queensland is running the Secondary Series again!

The Secondary Series takes place on 26 April at Ipswich, 31 May at Camp Hill and 21 June at Chermside. Entry is only $5 and novices to the experienced are encouraged to participate.

LATEST QCAA NEWS
QCAA recently launched three online courses in the QCAA School Portal that cover attributes of quality assessment and provide practical advice on constructing and marking assessment in the new system.

Registrations will open shortly for state-wide workshops designed to support schools to plan curriculum and assessment programs that prepare Year 10 students for a successful transition into the new QCE system. These activity-based workshops will be held during Term 1.

The first 60 or so teaching, learning and assessment resources to support schools implementing new senior syllabuses are available in the QCAA Portal for 15 subjects including the Concurrent delivery resource for Health 2019. Health are producing 30 resources supporting all electives. Physical Education will have 18 resources across the four units. A range of other resources will also be produced to support Endorsement, Confirmation and External Assessment processes.
