In Australia there has been a concerted effort to provide quality and enriching learning experiences for students in primary school Physical Education (PE). An issue that arises in facilitating these learning experiences is the difficulty of balancing the educational outcomes of PE and the recommended levels of physical activity (PA) for students. Currently in New South Wales primary schools, teaching methods may need a new focus in order to better balance these two goals. A teaching model that may have the potential to balance the educational and physical activity agendas in primary schools is Game Centred Approaches (GCAs).
