​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.

Healthy Active Learners

All children in Grades K - 4 participate in daily Phys Ed. to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.

Students in Grades K – 4 participate in daily Physical Education led by our Phys. Ed. Specialist, Mr. Der. In addition, students go outside everyday the weather is cooperative for either instant recess or on community walks and explorations.  We are greatly enjoying learning all about this beautiful place we live and learn in together!

Students are encouraged to bring only healthy snacks and lunches to school, in accordance with CBE Administrative Regulation 3047 - Nutrition.  They are required to have a water bottle for snack time and sipping on throughout the day to hydrate – please do not send juice boxes or milk containers for snack time. Students must bring their own healthy lunches but may purchase milk if they choose through the school.  Our School Council offers a Fun Lunch (Gr. 1 – 4) and Fun Snack (Kindergarten) approximately once a month through Healthy Hunger.

Recess and Breaks

Rather than having scheduled and timed recess, students’ needs for physical and mental breaks will be taken when they are needed throughout the day. We expect this will increase physical activity and interaction between students.

Students will be provided opportunities for healthy snacks each day. Snacks need to be portable (hold in one hand) and as healthy as possible. We will advise parents of allergy and dietary issues that could potentially threaten student health as we become aware of these concerns across the school.  We strongly encourage students to bring a water bottle to school and have water as their daily drink (except for lunchtimes) as this is the best way to hydrate.



Waste & Recycling Update

We are working hard to make our world a cleaner place to live and our school a more environmentally-sensitive learning environment.
