What is the Challenge?

The Premier’s be active Challenge is a physical activity program introduced by the Premier in 2007 to:

  • Encourage students to be more active more often
  • Improve the health and wellbeing of South Australian students

The Challenge requires students to do at least 60 minutes of physical activity on at least 5 days of the week for at least 4 weeks between the beginning of the school year and late September.

After 4 weeks of daily physical activity, students will be rewarded with a medal. After 10 weeks of daily physical activity, schools are in the running to win an award.
