Primary schoolgirls 19 per cent less active than boys, study finds

    Description

    A new study has found primary school girls in Canberra are nearly 20 per cent less active than boys.

    The researchers say boys appear to have more opportunities to play sport at school than girls and their parents are also giving them more chance to exercise out of school hours.
