The primary and junior students at St. Mary recently participated in a Zumba class on October 27th. The class was especially designed for younger children. “The smaller children have to approach the class at a slower pace because their co-ordination skills are just developing,” said instructor Renee Rainville Fong. Primary students were taught how to move their arms and legs to the music as their instructor taught them age – appropriate steps. Parents, teachers and the whole community received more than their usual allotment of Daily Physical Exercise. “Zumba is an excellent workout,” said teachers Becky Waern and Dante Merigioli. A grade 3 student, Rayden Recollect remarked, “Zumba is even harder than playing hockey!” The whole school is eagerly awaiting their next Zumba session.
