ACHPER WA Annual Conference 2017

Challenging and Connecting our Practice


The 2017 ACHPER WA state conference was held on the 27-29th November at the ECU Mount Lawley campus.

It was a jam-packed event where teachers from all over WA came together to connect, learn, and challenge their thinking. 195 HPE educators were involved the conference, with 60% attending for the first time!

128 schools from around WA were represented, as well as over 30 allied sports, organisations and institutions such as AISWA, Department of Education, Cath Ed, DSR, SCSA, SDERA, SHQ, Telethon Kids Institute, WAIS, ECU, UWA, UNDA, and Curtin, Murdoch and Monash Universities.

In all, we had over 400 visit the conference and ACHPER village over the 3 days. There were an amazing array of presenters delivering sessions in the health, Phys Ed, PE studies, and Outdoor Ed streams. Keynote presentations from Professor Donna Cross, Professor Dawn Penney, and Dr Justen O’Connor where certainly a highlight!
