ACHPER critical of Minister's Australian Curriculum:HPE media release

The Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER) welcomes the announcement of the progress being made in the development of the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education and the entitlement it brings.

However the title of the media release issued from the Minister for School Education, The Hon Peter Garrett MP, with its focus on the publicly sensitive areas of water safety and first aid as the core of the curriculum is surely misleading. This is an ill-conceived first release and tells only part of the story of the breadth and importance of the learning area.
