The Health and Physical Education Council (HPEC) advocates for health and physical education in Alberta's schools.
HPEC provides assistance to members so that they may improve curriculum and instruction through increased knowledge and understanding. The Council studies health and physical education issues and prepares professional responses and also networks with other agencies with common objectives.
The Council holds drive-in workshops throughout the province that offer a potpourri of health and physical education sessions. The Council also sponsors professional development grants from a donation fund called the Friends of HPEC. The annual conference is held in the spring and features practical and theoretical sessions related to all areas of health and physical education for all grade levels.
In addition, HPEC coordinates the Schools Come Alive Project, which provides support, leadership resources and workshops relating to active living and physical education.
The HPEC publishes the E-Sprinter e-newsletter and the Runner journal.
Contact information for the executive members of the Health and Physical Education Council is provided to assist the ATA in conducting its professional and business affairs.
