New funds, new floor

May 7, 2019

More than 10 years ago, a female fitness class was established at Glenlawn Collegiate (GCI). The course focused on lifelong fitness through a variety of engaging activities that reflected the interests of the students. Two classrooms were converted into a fitness studio to accommodate a variety of physical activities.

The fitness studio is also home to extracurricular clubs such as mixed martial arts, yoga, aerobics and hip hop dance. As the course offerings expanded and additional extracurricular clubs accessed the space, the crumbling floor needed replacing.

GCI has now received funding from the Community Incentive Grant Program that will cover 50 per cent of the cost of new floor tiles for this multi-purpose fitness studio at the school.

Brian Mayes, City Councillor, St. Vital Ward, who approved the funds, was on hand to help celebrate the announcement and the continued positive relationship between City Council and the Louis Riel School Division. 

"A few years ago, I was pleased to help fund the beach volleyball court and long jump pit with GCI and modernizing the fitness studio builds on this partnership. " 

The students and staff at GCI look forward to the renovated floor and the continued promotion of lifelong fitness and healthy living.
