Zumba Kids® Fitness is a program that will not only familiarize children with several different musical rhythms and movements but will also contribute to their overall physical, mental and emotional health.

It increases focus and self-confidence while boosting metabolism and co-ordination. Also incorporated into the program are the benefits leading to a healthy lifestyle by making proper food choices.

Non-sport Extracurricular Activities

Our school determines non-sport extracurricular activities based on several factors. For instance, we will survey student interest and demand. We also have a close relationship with our Parent Community Council (BACC) and consider the parents’ input and their requests for clubs (i.e. Mandarin language classes, Coding, Chess, Robotics, etc.). Our school’s focus is to provide an inclusive space, ensuring our students have a safe environment to communicate and explore their thoughts, and feelings, and find opportunities to express their identity (i.e. Confidence Building Workshops, Toast Masters, and Open Mic ‘Night’).

Participating in non-sport extracurriculars benefits our students by allowing them to develop their whole selves and not merely focus on the academic component of school life. Students will hone their strengths and individual talents leading, to the development of self-esteem and confidence. They will practice life-long skills, including but not limited to teamwork, leadership, creativity, critical thinking and communication skills. Students can explore areas not traditionally taught within the Ontario Curriculum and classrooms, as part of our “Beyond the Books” approach.

The most popular non-sport extracurricular activities at our school include:

  • Choir/Band: Students at our school are incredibly creative and look for opportunities to showcase their musical talents with their school community.
