Physical Education Week is a premier event
in the South Australian School Calendar.
Week 5 Term 4 (October Dates TBC)
The week focuses on the celebration of physical activity and highlights the importance of quality physical education teaching and programmes.
Organised by a committee of primary school teachers from both sectors, under the administration of ACHPER, each school has the opportunity to participate in various organised activities or just participate in school based activities. Schools are actively encouraged to make Physical Education Week a prominent celebration in their calendars so that the following attributes can be developed.
PE Week is in Week 5 of Term 4: 12th – 16th November. PE Week booklets are sent to each school at the end of Term 3. The booklets have all the information needed to participate.
Physical Education Week also provides the opportunity to nominate teachers, volunteers and schools for awards of excellence and service in the development of physical education and sport programmes in schools. These awards are presented at the PE Week Dinner that officially opens the week. Schools are encouraged to use this as a way to recognise people and programmes that create success in this area.
