  • Schools that have participated in the Premier’s be active Challenge in the past are automatically registered.


  • Students participating as part of a school do not need to register personally
  • Students wishing to participate from home, you do not need to register. Simply complete the recording booklet and submit it when complete.

Recording activity, submitting results and receiving awards are all addressed in the Challenge Guidelines.
