The Let's Play Physical Education Challenge

Let's Get (Pro) Active

In 2015, Let’s Play  launched the biggest schools fitness initiative of the decade, the Let’s Play Physical Education Challenge!

What is it?

SuperSport in partnership with the Department of Basic Education, Sport and Recreation South Africa, the Physical Education Institute of South Africa, UNICEF and Active Education, has challenged primary schools throughout the country to prove their fitness. The primary objective of the Challenge is to reinforce the instruction of curriculum-oriented Physical Education and to promote physical activity in all primary schools.

The Challenge is a nationwide event targeted at 10 year olds, which in 2015 reached 477 primary schools, involving more than 403 000 children and was part of the 10th Year Anniversary celebrations of Let’s Play.

 

What’s at stake?

The fittest primary school in each province will compete for the title with the grand prize being a R1.3 million multi-purpose sport court, sponsored by the Sports Trust, to be built at the winning school
