International Conference

from President, David Keating

The 27th ACHPER International Conference was extremely well organised and from a number of perspectives can be viewed as a great success and a credit to the South Australia Branch of ACHPER. This Conference has certainly set a high standard for the next International Conference in Melbourne in 2013. The program had something for everyone and the Keynote Presenters were of a particularly high standard. The venue was imminently suitable; well located; and provided all the services and facilities required for the number of delegates attending. There were 13 Trade Exhibitors – all of whom engaged enthusiastically with the delegates. One of the many high points was the Fritz Duras Memorial Lecture given by Professor Alan Reid – his topic “HPE & Capabilities: Towards an active national curriculum” was timely, relevant and challenging. (We will provide a link to this paper to ACHPER members in Queensland in the near future.) It was also great to see more than 40 Queenslanders in attendance at the Conference – we were well represented amongst presenters, panels, and at all the social networking activities.
