We want to spread the word about HPE Day as much as we can, and here is some latest news to read.
In the August ACHPER Advocate, you might have read the Media Release issued by ACHPER on National HPE Day. This media release highlighted the importance of HPE within the Australian Curriculum and how it helps enhance the health and well-being of our children.
Research shows that children’s participation in physical activity leads to better student engagement, improved academic achievement during school years, and better outcomes in adult life.
It’s no surprise that schools play a significant role in the intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of children. Learning in Health and Physical Education makes an important and positive difference because it encourages lifelong participation and results in better health outcomes.
