Keynote

Fostering 21st Century Physically Literate Learners

We have chosen one of the most honourable, powerful and inspiring professions on the planet. Yet in many countries around the world health and physical education has taken a back seat to other subjects deemed more important. What can we do as the gatekeepers of health & physical education for the future of our profession? After all, we don’t inherit programming from the ones that came before us we borrow it from our future teachers. How will we leave the state of our profession when it is our turn to pass on the baton?
