LR PE / Learning readinessLRPE is an early morning exercise session for students to wake up their brains and prepare for the academics of the school day. Research has shown that after elvating the heart rate for 20mins or more the brain produces hormones as GABA and BDNF which facilitate better memory retention, problem-solving skills, and cognitive functions thus preparing the students for difficult subjects during the day. Evidence has been found that an exercise session in the morning is more effective than an hour of tutoring, and it benefits the cardiovascular health at the same time! The exercises done during these sessions vary from yoga to adventure type climbing, swinging and jumping to team sports, fitness related exercises and exercises to stimulate the connection between the two brain halves.
