Congratulations on participating in this, the 16th year of the Premier’s be active Challenge in South Australia.

I am challenging South Australian students from Reception to Year 12 to do 60 minutes of physical activity, 5 days per week for at least 4 weeks by 30 September 2022.

The Premier’s be active Challenge rewards outstanding achievement. Over their years at school, students can collect 12 medals, and should feel proud of their efforts.

As in previous years, The Premier’s be active Challenge excelled in 2021, with 34,440 students from 224 schools completing the Challenge. Students took part in the Challenge at school and at home. This is an outstanding achievement and I thank school staff and parents for your time and efforts in supporting children and their families to complete the Challenge.

The Challenge has been fortunate to have high profile and enthusiastic ambassadors who inspire students to enjoy being active and achieving their goals. Adelaide United Football Club, Adelaide Lightning Basketball Club, Adelaide 36ers Basketball Club, Port Adelaide Football Club, Adelaide Football Club, Thunderbirds Netball Club and SA Scorpions have also thrown their support behind the Premier’s be active Challenge and the Premier’s Reading Challenge as joint ambassador teams.

Information about the Challenge is available on the website, by telephoning (08) 8226 2006, or by email at A school contact person is required to coordinate your school’s participation on behalf of all teachers, staff and students at your school.

I encourage all students to discover the joy of being active with the Premier’s be active Challenge. I wish you every success in 20222.
