On Wednesday 21 September Alperton Community School will take part in the National Fitness Day 2022 to celebrate the important role physical activity plays in our wellbeing and encourage students to engage daily in physical activities to improve their physical, mental and social wellbeing.

Some of the benefits of engaging in physical activity:

  • it can make us happier,
  • improve our sleep,
  • help us switch off,
  • to connect with other people,
  • raise our energy levels,
  • increase our productivity.

By putting aside just 20 minutes a day to do something that gets our hearts pumping and muscles working, we can all strive to achieve the levels of activity recommended by Professor Chris Whitty, the Chief Medical Officer.
