​Health & Wellness at the CBE

At the CBE, we believe in a whole school approach to health and wellness. We call this our Comprehensive School Health (CSH) approach. CSH is about healthy eating, active living, supportive social environments and positive mental health. As a system, we focus on the following four areas: healthy eating; healthy relationships; physical activity; and positive mental health. Each school creates its own approach and goals for health and wellness.

School Food Policies 

Our goal at Belfast School is to create a safe, inclusive environment for all students. We currently have several students and staff members that have severe anaphylactic allergies to milk, eggs, shellfish, peanuts and kiwi.  These high allergens are present in many homemade and packaged foods. We are asking for the support of the community to help us reduce risk factors. 

Moving forward, students cannot bring food items to share with peers at school.  We recognize that this may be a huge change in past practice and tradition.  Birthday celebrations and holidays are important and continue to be valued aspects of our school. We are requesting that families that wish to send a treat to school choose alternatives to food to recognize these special events such as birthday pencils, erasers, stickers, a favorite book for the classroom, special cards, bookmarks.  

Occasionally, teachers plan a learning experience that involves food i.e. a cooking lesson or a science experiment.  Prior to the activity, parents will be informed and will have the opportunity to discuss with the teacher any modifications that might be required to ensure safety. 

Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.
