Sport Australia CEO Kate Palmer says schools are a key vehicle to solving the nation’s inactivity crisis, launching the 31st Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER) International Conference at the AIS today. Sport Australia is sponsoring and hosting the ACHPER conference at its AIS campus in Canberra from Monday to Wednesday, with some 250 delegates from around the world including physical education teachers, sport educators, coaches and associated health practitioners. A report card released by the Active Healthy Kids Australia late last year scored Australia a D-minus for children’s physical activity levels, ranking our nation 32 of 49 countries. Research shows 81 per cent of Australian children are not meeting our physical activity guidelines.
