Australian Curriculum

ACHPER has been closely involved in discussions and meetings with ACARA and contributed significant feedback from the States/Territories and National to inform the discussions on the HPE Curriculum.

On Friday September 18, 2015 the Education Council endorsed the Australian Curriculum in eight learning areas, including Health and Physical Education. The newly endorsed Foundation - Year 10 Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education will be made available from late October.

As noted by ACARA, schools and teachers have the flexibility as to how they teach the curriculum based on the needs of their students and the requirements of their school and local curriculum authorities.
