April 14, 2011 - Regardless of ability and age, every student at St. Raphael School is getting into the Zumba craze this month.  All the students are participating in five Latin dance classes with two certified instructors. 
 
Zumba will be part of the student daily physical activity at the school.  The Ministry of Education states:  “The goal of daily physical activity is to instill the habit of activity and enable all elementary students to be active on a daily basis in order to maintain or enhance their physical fitness, their overall health and wellness, and their ability and readiness to learn.”
 
It’s all a part of becoming a healthy school on the move.  The school is being recognized by the Healthy Schools Recognition Program.  It is a Ministry of Education initiative that awards schools going above the call of duty when it comes to the promotion of healthy living and eating.
