​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.

Recess Snacks

Students are encouraged to have a healthy recess snack. Research shows that children learn and retain information better when they have had water to drink and have eaten a healthy snack. As an environmentally conscious school, we recommend garbage free snacks and provide bins for our students to compost food waste.
