Metropolitan 'Come and Try' Days

A great idea for an active school excursion in Term 4 is attending one of the ‘Come and Try’ Days which will all be held again in 2018 in Week 5.


These events are only made possible through the support of our sponsors and supporters. We value our key alliances, and without these partnerships, ACHPER (SA) could not dream and run this event annually!

Also thanks to our PE Week partners the South Australian Cricket Association and Mt Lofty Spring Water
