[en] Experts agree that PE can play a key role in the promotion of a lifelong active lifestyle. In many countries, the PE teacher is seen as the most appropriate staff member to coordinate health education at school. However, in Belgium the PE programme does not expressively mention lifelong active lifestyle as a priority objective (Ministère de la Communauté française, 2000). Nevertheless, PE teachers consider traditionally that they should encourage lifelong sport participation but there is no study verifying whether they actually do. Our purpose was to verify wether Wallonian PE teachers were aware of their role as physical activity promoters by identifying the actions that they use in their schools.
