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.

Birthday Celebrations

While it may be convenient to hand out birthday invitations at school it can also be upsetting to children who do not receive invitations. We ask parents to exercise discretion and sensitivity regarding birthday invitations.

For health and safety reasons, it is not permitted to send treat such as stickers, pencils etc. to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays.
