Across central and eastern Europe, countries entered into a political transition period typified by democratic freedom and idealism and in educational reforms by conceptual reorientations based on ideas of humanism and liberalisation. This article focuses on school physical education and sport in Hungary after the political transition period of the 1990s. Specifically, it highlights issues relating to curriculum changes, the conceptual modernisation of school physical education and sport, the emergence of a Hungarian national curriculum and suggests that schools and physical education practitioners have critical roles in promoting and fostering participation in physical and sporting activity through curricular and extracurricular programmes for essential full lifespan engagement.
