The physical activities were provided by Hayley Campbell from Ignite Gym Inc .

She pairs physical activities with learning concepts to promote brain enrichment and successfully learning. It turns out that a workout is not only good for your body, but the side effects of exercise also help your brain.

The DrumFit program was facilitated by staff from Algoma Family Services.

Arthur Henderson students took part, drumming to fun music in the gym.

DrumFit is a cardio-based drumming program that combines learning and fitness for overall health.
