    NSW: Time to encourage more exercise
    SYDNEY, June 13 - Many NSW primary school children still aren't getting enough exercise, says the state's Auditor-General.

    About 30 per cent of government primary schools don't provide the required two hours of planned physical activity each week, according to a new report. In addition, students at schools that set aside the time don't actually end up engaging in two hours of moderate to vigorous physical activity.

    "Students are spending too much time waiting their turn, setting up equipment or travelling to venues and not enough time on moderate to vigorous activity and learning fundamental movement skills," said NSW Auditor-General Peter Achterstraat.
