2019 Secondary / VCE® and Primary HPE Conference supporters and exhibitor profiles

We’d like to take this opportunity to profile the fantastic supporters and sponsors of our upcoming 2019 Secondary / VCE and Primary HPE Conferences, some of whom will be exhibiting at both events.

We encourage you to pop in, have a chat and take advantage of special conference-only offers.

ACHPER Victoria Annual Partners

Victoria University
We’d like to thank Victoria University (VU) for hosting and sponsoring both conferences again this year. Through their strong industry connections and leadership in sport education and world-class sports science facilities, VU provides opportunities for every individual to achieve success on their own terms, and prepare them not just for a career, but for life.

Also, Victoria University staff will be conducting laboratory tours of their world-class facilities within the Institute of Health and Sport at the Secondary / VCE conference.

Tennis Australia (TA)
Tennis Australia provides opportunities for all primary and secondary schools to help develop a lifelong love of physical activity in heath in students. In particular, TA provides programs which are inclusive, support maximum participation, cater to students individual needs and assist teachers in delivering on the outcomes of the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education (AC:HPE)

Tennis Australia will be exhibiting at both conferences, so drop in and say hello to the team to learn more about their fantastic programs, professional learning workshops and competition opportunities for your school.

RHSports has been helping customers with wholesale sporting equipment and apparel solutions for over 35 years. Formerly known as Ross Haywood Sports, they are continually introducing innovative and customised products to their range.

In the meantime, check out the teaching resources on the RHSports website for a great range of classroom games, sports rules and score sheets to help you with classroom activities.

Road to Zero
Transport Accident Commission (TAC)’s Road to Zero, located at Melbourne Museum, is a free, curriculum-based learning experience that uses the latest digital technology to teach the physics of road safety and principles of effective public health campaigns. The aim of the experiential program is to engage young people and the broader Victorian community in understanding what we all need to do to achieve the vision of Towards Zero - a future where no one is killed or seriously injured on our roads.

The program directly addresses the Year 9 and 10 Health & Physical Education curriculum in the areas of:

  • Personal, Social and Community Health – communicating and interacting for health and wellbeing (VCHPEP148)
  • Personal, Social and Community Health – contributing to healthy and active communities (VCHPEP149).
  • It also addresses the VCAL curriculum and the Science curriculum at Years 9 and 10.

Make sure that you check out the Road to Zero exhibition stand at the ACHPER Victoria’s Secondary and VCE HPE Conference on Friday 21 June where staff will be giving out Road to Zero-branded Keep Cups to attendees who sign up to receive updates about the education program.

Road to Zero Project and Content Manager Anne Harris and Education Coordinator Elke Barczak are also speaking at the conference (elective session C05), and will share practical examples of how the Road to Zero program can be utilised within the Health and Physical Education curriculum.

For more information about Road to Zero and to book a 2019 class excursion, go to roadtozero.vic.gov.au or call (03) 8341 7767 during business hours.
