eat well be active - Primary Schools Project

The eat well be active - Primary Schools project was funded by SA Health and co-managed with the Department of Education and Children's Services (DECS) aiming to build the capacity of schools.

This initiative was phased into 129 schools with enrolement in Reception to Year 7 since its commencement in Term 2, 2009.

ACHPER (SA) was contracted as a Service Provider by SA Health from Term 2 2009 to Term 4, 2013, and worked with 116 schools.
