​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.

Woodman Wellness Corner

2020 Apr 7 - Given these unprecedented times, please follow the provincial updates on COVID-19. As a school, we would like to provide you with possible resources which will be regularly updated in the hopes of offering support for our students and their families. Our shared priority is the health and wellness of all members of our community. Please take care of your own, and your child’s mental health. 

A great place to start a conversation with your child is by watching this video.

Once you have watched the video, talk to your child about their thoughts on the virus and check in with how they are feeling. Ask what information they have been seeing about the virus and discuss the importance of using proper news sources, as well as limiting time focused on the pandemic. In speaking with students before Spring Break, some students were aware of information around possible “cures” that could be used for this virus (drinking bleach, the use of strong alcohol, etc). Address this and help your child understand how much misinformation is being spread through social media outlets and how many of these “cures” can actually be more deadly/dangerous than the virus itself.

Looking for a family challenge? Open this link and have some fun.

Please find below some school supports if you or your child need to speak to someone regarding mental health or any other questions regarding you or your child’s well being. We are here to help. The best way to reach us is by email:

More ideas:
  1. Do something that makes you feel productive or something you like. Finish a project you started, read a book, organize your closet. 
  2.  Connect with someone you have not seen for a while either through technology or at a safe physical distance. 
  3.  Let others in your home know what you need. If you are feeling overwhelmed ask for help. Pay attention to your negative thoughts and try to change your thinking. 
  4. Try to set a schedule. Try to get up at the same time and go to bed at the same time. Schedule your schoolwork and take breaks. Chunk your time if it feels overwhelming. Schedule some exercise during the day. Make sure you schedule time to talk with friends and others, facetime if you can so you get more interaction and verbal conversations rather than texts. 
  5.  Avoid daily social media about the virus. Try to take breaks from all the information circling around you.
