​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.

Supervision of Students 

A reminder to parents that supervision of David Thompson students begins 15 minutes before the school day starts and ends 15 minutes after dismissal.   At lunchtime, students remaining on campus are supervised by school staff.   Students who go home for lunch or those in grades 7 to 9 who leave the campus (including to the public play park north of the school) are not supervised by school staff and it is understood that students going off campus have parent permission to do so.   Please note that students in the building earlier than 15 minutes before school not directly working with a teacher are expected to be on their best behaviour or face losing that privilege.   

School Resource Officer

The role of the Resource Officer is to provide guidance and act as a legal resource for teachers, students, parents/guardians and the community at large. Part of this role is to encourage communication and greater understanding among young people and the Calgary Police Service.
