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.

Health & Wellness

Celebrations and Cultural Sensitivity

Our school is rich with cultural diversity, providing many occasions for celebrations. In considering our role in nurturing significant learning as well as building a sense of community and belonging, teachers are asked to focus on deeply purposeful classroom learning and to minimize time invested in occasions more appropriately celebrated at home. We are committed to nurturing healthy lifestyle choices and discourage celebrating with sweet, sugary foods.

In addition, schools must respect the cultural uniqueness of students. Classroom activities, including celebrations, and assemblies must never put a student in a position of feeling excluded or singled out. In assemblies and on Mondays, students who are unable to participate in “O, Canada” will be expected to stand in respect but will not be expected to participate.
