PEAI news November 2015

latestnewsGood evening all.


I hope this update finds you all well at this very busy time of year. With a lot of changes and paradigm shifts in PE in recent months, the PEAI are striving to represent your needs and continue to represent you in many boards and meetings up and down the country. The PEAI are currently planning two major projects which we hope will be up and running in the new year.

We thank you for you valued support and membership, without which the PE teachers in the country would not have a voice.


Thank you again
